Home / Should You Choose Gas Or Electric Hobs

There are many options available when it comes to choosing a cooking hob for your kitchen. The first thing you will have to decide on will be whether to install gas or electric hobs. To help you make your decision and choose the most suitable hob for your cooking requirements, we have outlined some of the advantages of electric and gas hobs below.

The Pros And Cons Of Electric And Gas Hobs

One of the best aspects of owning a gas hob is the ability to control heat instantly. While electric hobs need time to heat up and cool down, gas hobs allow for much more precise, immediate temperature control. Certain pots and pans may not be compatible with electric hobs due to their shape or the material they are made from, whereas gas hobs offer greater flexibility in terms of the cookware you can use. Gas hobs also generally have lower running costs compared to electric hobs.

Electric hobs are easier to clean than gas hobs, as they have a flat surface that can be wiped down easily with a cloth. For families with young children, electric hobs may be the better option, as they provide a greater level of safety compared to gas hobs. There are no open flames with an electric hob, creating a safer environment in the kitchen. Finally, while gas hobs may be cheaper to run, they can also be more expensive to install if a gas supply is not available. All an electric hob needs is a plug socket.

As you can see, both types of hobs come with their advantages and disadvantages. Weigh up the pros and cons and decide which hob is best for your kitchen based on your cooking requirements.
