Top 4 Gas Cooktop Features

Posted: Friday, August 26, 2016

Gas cooktops are a great choice for people looking for an affordable and sustainable home appliance option, but with so many cooktops available on the market, how can you decide which one to buy for your home kitchen? We’ve compiled a list of our favourite cooktop features to help you decide which cooktop is right for your family.

Top 4 Gas Cooktop Features

1. Electronic Switches
No need to press down the controls while you wait for the gas to ignite. With electronic switches you just need to rotate the dial and the cooktop does the rest. Check out the Miele KM3034 & KM2357 for great examples of this ‘quick start’ technology.

2.Easy Clean
Cleaning the kitchen isn’t anyone’s favourite job, but there are certain features that make it less of a chore. Make sure your cooktop has individual, removable pan supports for easy cleaning (bonus points if they fit in the dishwasher!) and removable temperature controls for an easy after dinner wipe down.

3.Flame Failure Safety
Cooktops with this safety feature will automatically shut down the gas if the flame gets extinguished while cooking, so you never have to worry about gas leak or fire - even on the lowest simmer. Take a look at the Electrolux EHG953BA and EHG953SA for cooktops with this feature.

4.Wok Burners
If you’re interested in healthy eating a wok burner is a must have. Wok cooking is a great way to get more veggies in your diet, and a fantastic way to cut down the amount of oil you use in your cooking. Lots of cooktops have this functionality, but if you’re a REALLY keen wok user check out the Bosch PCR915B91A - it has a dual wok burner for true wok fanatics!

Servicing Your Gas Cooktop

No matter which gas cooktop you choose, you’ll need regular servicing to keep it performing at its best.
