What is the difference between a gas hob and a gas stove?
Gas stoves and hobs are both cooktops, but they are completely different from each other in terms of functionality and design. While gas stoves may seem an easy choice for cooking, but modern hobs have many benefits and are becoming quite popular with homemakers of all ages.
Basic differences between a gas stove and a hob
Traditional gas stoves have a freestanding body type while modern hobs have a built-in design. Traditional gas stoves are limited to basic functions such as on and off. On the other hand, modern hobs come with an array of features that make cooking easy. To sum up, hobs are definitely a better choice over gas stoves for modern kitchens.
At Kutchina, we offer a vast selection of some of the best kitchen hobs in India. Modern hobs from our collection integrate several innovative features that ease your cooking experience. Learn more about our stylish and functional hobs.
Here are some of the benefits of hobs that you cannot get with gas stoves:
1) Efficient cooking
Unlike gas stoves, modern hobs sit on the level of your kitchen’s countertop and do not protrude. This built-in design makes it easy for you to load/unload heavy cooking utensils on the cooktop. Modern hobs’ built-in design eases cleaning it too.
When cleaning the countertop, you can simply wipe off food spills and grime from the hob’s cooktop. Also, modern hobs come with auto-ignition feature which automatically lights the burners.
2) Multiple heat control options
Different recipes require different cooking temperatures. With conventional gas stoves, the range of heat control you get is very limited, making it difficult for you to achieve perfection in a particular recipe’s taste.
Our modern hobs come with multi-flame burners; you can individually control the flame on the interior and exterior ring of the burner to precisely adjust the cooking temperature. Also, burners in our kitchen hobs are long-lasting as they are made from enamel-coated cast iron.
3) Sleek look
Apart from improving functionality in your cooking bay, modern hobs work great for elevating the aesthetics of your kitchen as well. They have a sleek look which lends a contemporary look to your kitchen.
To create a sophisticated look in your kitchen, choose a contemporary-style hob that has a durable glass finish. Our range-topping hobs are available in durable tempered glass finish.
4) High levels of safety
Modern hobs are highly safe to use as compared to traditional gas stoves. The innovative flame failure function of our modern hobs automatically turns off gas supply whenever the flame on the burner goes off. You can also use the timer function to set a specific cooking time.
