If you are planning to buy a gas hob, you are bound to have many questions. As one of the leading kitchen appliances brands in India, we have answered a few FAQs that you may find helpful:
1. Where should I put my kitchen hob? Consult a qualified professional to figure out the best location for installing a kitchen gas hob. A professional will install the kitchen gas hob in such a way that it is aligned perfectly with the chimney. The professional will also cut the countertop to the exact dimensions as specified by the manufacturer. You can take the help of our experts to find the right kitchen hob as per the specifications of your kitchen.
2. Can you put a hob next to a wall? Yes, a gas hob can be installed next to a wall. A minimum distance must be maintained between the gas hob and the wall. Read the manufacturer’s instructions regarding installation. Make sure that the wall next to which the gas hob has been installed doesn’t have any flammable objects such as kitchen towel, utensil rails and wall units. Avoid placing the gas hob next to a window as curtains are a potential fire risk and bright sunlight can make it difficult to see whether or not the burners are lit.
3. How much space do you need around a hob? When installing a gas hob, keep in mind that there should be sufficient space on either side. If you are installing the gas hob on a kitchen island where your family sits and eats, you will need more space surrounding the hob. Those with children at home need to carefully choose the location to keep small children at a safe distance from an open flame.
4. What should I put above my hob? The only thing that you should be put above a kitchen hob is an electric chimney that will remove smoke, cooking odour and grease from the kitchen. Anything other than that will run the risk of getting damaged by steam produced during cooking.
