Hob Tips!

25 April 19 Author:Michelle Gaffaney

Here are three top tips to help you pick the perfect hob for you:

  1. Fuel choices – Gas tends to be the popular option (if it is available) as it is easily controlled. However, they can be a pain to clean! So if easy clean is a top priority it is worth investing in a hob with burners on top of ceramic glass. Electric glass hobs heat up quickly, but they aren’t as good as the gas, this is due to the heat distribution being uneven. Also they may be simpler to use but they also cost the most to run.
  2.  Induction Savvy – sometimes pans aren’t always compatible with the hob you choose! So this could be a good excuse to finally replace those ancient pots your grandparents gave you! Get those cupboards refilled with a good set of stainless steel, aluminium, or iron pans, ready to knock up your next banquet.
  3.  Get cooking – the most common type of hob is 60cm in width and has four burners, however wider hobs are available with space for up to five or six burners. Induction hobs heat the pans placed on them rather then the surface area, which is good from a safety aspect, and if you have gas there is the added benefit of visibility.
