The latest gas hobs: Modern designs to fit every budget

Have you found a new passion for cooking in lockdown? Well, then you might be on the hunt for the latest appliances to take your kitchen kit to the next level. When it comes to hobs, gas versus induction is still very much a hot debate but it does mainly depend on your cooking style and what you are used to.  

For example, induction hobs are ideal if you’re looking for smart features when cooking like pre-set or temperature control programmes, with an easy-clean, flush surface. Plus, they have a sleek and modern look which fits even the most minimalist kitchen. But do keep in mind that this type of hob tends to be more expensive too.

Gas, on the other hand, is the best choice if you love cooking on high-heat. This classic choice allows you to quickly turn the heat up or down, which makes it easy to see and control the flames when cooking – I’m already thinking of delicious stir-fry recipes and seared seafood. It might be a bit more tricky to clean because of the griddles and grates, but you can go for a flush-mounted gas-on-glass design.
