There are advantages and disadvantages to having a gas hob or an electric hob. To make a better decision you need to ask yourself a few questions about your cooking style before deciding. Below are a few things to consider:
Gas hob vs. Electric hob
Gas is so much quicker at cooking food
If you have a spill, you can clean it up straight away without having to leave it to cool down
Gas is easier to control and won’t burn the outside rim of a pan
Gas hobs are cheaper to run than electric
Why you shouldn’t buy an electric hob
It takes too long to clean because it takes a long time to cool, so food ends up getting stuck
Food takes longer to cook compared to a gas hob
Depending on how much electricity you use, it can cost more than having a gas hob
Due to the positioning of the knobs, the numbers will disappear in time by cleaning products
Having searched forums and asked friends and family, the majority of people tend to prefer a gas hob to an electric hob. Contrary to what most think, gas is cheaper and more economical; electric hobs take time to heat and then too long to cool whereas gas hobs are instantly hot and cool when you lower the temperature making it easier to control.
