There is nothing better that cooking in a well-equipped kitchen with plenty of bench space and a powerful stovetop. For some home owners, a gas stove top is the perfect choice for their kitchen as this type of burner provides instant heat control, making it easier to cook up a storm.
It's not just functionality that makes gas stovetops a firm favourite of some families, these cooking units look great too. Gas cooktops are available in a range if materials to suit almost any kitchen. You can choose from four easy to clean options; stainless steel, ceramic glass, ceramic or enamel.
Cooking is an everyday activity so make sure you choose a stovetop that works for your needs. The first thing to consider is how many burners you need, do you usually have many pots on the boil or would you prefer less burners and more bench space? If you've got a family, safety when cooking is a consideration so look for gas cooktops with flame failure devices and stable trivets that help to keep the pots and pans stable.
Before you buy a gas cooktop, it's important to check if your home is connected to gas and if not, how much this would cost to connect. We also recommend that you think about size and shape. Whether you go with square or rectangular, two burners or eight - your new stovetop must fit the bench and have space underneath for ventilation. Remember that you will put a range hood above your stove so choose gas cooktop specifications that work with the space you have. While you're shopping don't forget to consider complementary homeappliances on eBay and how these would match with your new gas stovetop.
Whether you go with gas or choose an alternative cooktop like electric or induction, it's important to shop around and work out what works for yourself and your family.
