Installation- Best Kitchen Hobs in India

Installing a cooktop is easy but for installing a hob, some civil work is required. All hobs have auto-ignition i.e matchbox or lighter is not needed. The burner will light automatically by rotating the regulator.

Types of flames in hobs

 There are 2 types of flames in hobs- Indian and Italian. You must know your style of cooking. For fast cooking go for Indian and for slow cooking, the Italian hob is the best.

Burners-

You mostly get Aluminium, Brass, Brass Alloy, or Sabaf burners. Aluminium is heat efficient whereas brass is energy efficient with more durability and longer life. A brass burner is best.

Number of burners

The number of burners can be decided by analyzing the cooking style. For faster, simultaneous, and large quantity cooking you need large burners and a 4 burner hob. For slow or for small meals; you need small burners and a 3-4 burners hob.

LPG to PNG – Best Kitchen Hobs in India

By default, hobs work with LPG but for PNG, the nozzle of the hob must be changed by a professional team. Call the technician of the brand whose hob you are using. They will change the nozzle to make it PNG compatible.

Maintenance & Looks- Best Kitchen Hobs in India

The black glass hob looks more beautiful than a cooktop. But everything comes with a price. Hobs require high maintenance. Their gasket should be changed every 12-18 months to avoid leakage. A hob shouldn’t be immediately cleaned after cooking as it is made of glass and not aluminium. Hobs must be cleaned with a soft cloth at least after half-hour of cooking. This is how you can maintain your hob for a long time.

Safety- Best Kitchen Hobs in India

Hobs come with Flame Failure Device (FFD) that cuts off the gas supply if the flame extinguishes. This is a fantastic safety feature.

Services-

Make sure you check the service of the hob you want to buy. We did this for you. We called the customer care no (of the mentioned products) from 5 different locations with 5 different problems. We will review their services on the basis of their replies. Then you may decide for yourself.

Extended Warranty-
