What type of gas cooker ?

Posted on | Posted in Uncategorized

Which gas cooker to buy ?

The most common type of cooker is the Gas Cooker.  Gas Cookers are usually 60cm wide and composed of four gas burners of varying sizes – usually one small, one large and two medium-sized zones for different-sized pans, plus an ignition switch that lights the gas burner you want to use, and knobs allowing you to control and vary the strength of each gas flame.

The Benefits of using a gas cooker over a electric cooker are :

  • Easy to control heat
  • Gas is an instant, visible heat source
  • Good overall heat distribution

The Negatives of a gas cooker are :

  • Needs be installed by a gas safe qualified
  • More expensive to buy than electric
  • Gas areas more difficult to clean

What Type of Gas Ovens are their ?

Conventional gas cooker

While most standard gas cookers are four-zoned manual ignition hobs as described above, it’s worth shopping around for bigger sizes – up to 90cm wide – and extra features. You’ll find gas hobs available with five ring capacity, child-safe controls as well as auto-ignition.

Gas glass hob

The stylish – but usually more expensive –  variety of hob has the gas burners positioned on top of ceramic glass, making them easier to clean than a standard gas hob and giving a more professional kitchen finish. Gas glass models tend to be slower to heat than electric ceramic models.

Five-ring gas hob

Five ring gas hobs are also available to accommodate larger wok-style pans for a more intense, rapid source of heat – great for rustling up stir-frys. Usually this comes in the form of a large fifth burner in the middle of the hob.
