Gas Hob Buying Guide for 2024

What is the Best Gas Hob to Buy?

Modern Living is back with another appliance buying guide, and today we’re shifting our focus to a staple appliance in the modern home, the gas hob. 

This is the second in our series of buying guides, all of which you can find at Modern Living. 

Why Get a Gas Hob?

Whilst there is some talk surrounding whether it’s worth getting a gas hob in 2024, we still believe that these appliances are a great addition to a modern home. 

How Many Burners Do I Need?

We offer 2 to 6-burner gas hobs, meaning there’s a size for everyone. But how many burners do you need?

2 burners – Ideal for those who perhaps are only cooking for themselves and have little demand for a gas hob. 2 burner gas hobs are a little harder to find as they are not as popular.

4 burners – This is the standard gas hob layout, with enough hobs for your average cooking needs. 4 burner gas hobs are popular for smaller families and couples. They provide sufficient cooking power to whip up your favourite dishes.

5 to 6 burners – We highly recommend gas hobs with 5 to 6 burners for larger families and even commercial cooking environments. These make managing a high cooking demand much easier, taking the stress out of cooking your roast dinner. 

What are the Best Brands for Gas Hobs?

At Modern Living, we exclusively stock highly-rated and trusted brands. From budget brands to top-of-the-range appliances, we’ve got it all. Here are our most popular, highly-rated brands of gas hobs.

Our Most Frequently Asked Questions About Gas Hobs

As appliance experts, we get asked a lot for technical product advice. So here are the answers to those burning questions you have about gas hobs. 

Which Gas Hob is Easiest to Clean? 

Generally speaking, gas-on glass hobs are the easiest to clean. These models are becoming increasingly popular due to their easy-clean surface that doesn’t compromise the power of gas cooking. 

You get all the benefits of gas cooking, but with none of the same clean up.

How do I Clean a Glass Hob?

Again, it depends on which surface you opt for. With a gas-on glass hob, all you need is a high-quality glass cleaner. However, if you’re opting for a more traditional gas hob, here are the steps to take to get it squeaky clean.

  1. Ensuring the hob is cold and switched off, remove all the gas rings from the hob. 
  1. Soak the gas rings in a bowl of warm soapy water, then use a sponge to thoroughly wash every ring, using a toothbrush on any stubborn dirt. Then, leave the rings to dry fully.
  1. Next, focus on the surface of the hob itself. Begin by removing as much food, crumbs and other debris as possible. You can use a dry cloth to do this. Or a dustpan and brush.
  1. Apply a heavy-duty cleaning solution. We prefer to use cream cleaner, which is suitable for removing harsh stains and dirt. Allow the product to sit for a few minutes on the surface before going in with a soft sponge. Wipe away the residue with a clean cloth, and you’re finished.

Which Hob Type is the Most Efficient?

Gas hobs are up there as the most efficient hob type on the market. They are extremely powerful, with cheap running costs. 

We recommend gas hobs if you want an affordable, yet highly powerful cooking solution.
