The eternal enigma, is a gas hob better than an electric hob? There are advocates for both however, with advancing technologically the question is no longer a simple one.
Nowadays we have gas, ceramic and induction hobs, rather than standard electric ones, and even a combination of induction and gas to give the best of both worlds. Whichever you prefer, EKCO Edinburgh’s premier kitchen specialist stocks a range of hobs from some of the world’s top manufacturers such as Neff, Siemens and Kitchen Aid. We can deliver to you wherever you live in Scotland or can we supply and fit your new kitchen appliance, whichever you prefer. Here is just a small sample of the hobs we have to offer.
German manufacturer and sister company to Siemens, Neff offers a variety of hobs including gas, ceramic and induction. Gas is still the most popular and among the best sellers is the T67S76N1 five burner extra wide hob on a black ceramic base. It includes a wok burner, for those who like to include a stir-fry in their regular menu, a high-speed burner, two standard burners and an economy burner.
Ceramic burners are also back in vogue due to their sleek looks and controllability. The Neff T11K40X2 is a contemporary black frameless ceramic hob with four cooking zones and a residual heat indicator to let you know when it is cool enough to touch.
One of best-selling induction models is the T41D90X2 which is an extra wide hob with automatic pan recognition to add both intelligence and a touch of class to your kitchen appliances.
Both Siemens and Neff manufacture induction hobs with the ground–breaking FlexInduction system which is one of the fastest and safest methods of cooking. FlexInduction means you can place your pots and pans anywhere on the cooking surface which means you can put on extra pots if you happen to catering for a large dinner party.
Just as you would expect from an innovative and quirky company Kitchen Aid, as well as producing gas and induction hobs also manufactures a range of step hobs which combine three gas burners alongside an induction platform for the best of both worlds.
One of the latest and most versatile range of kitchen cooking appliances available from all our manufacturers are modular domino hobs. A domino hob generally consists of one or two burners which can be either gas or induction. You can mix and match to create a custom-built cooking surface based on your needs. For example if you like to use a wok regularly you can buy a gas wok domino hob and lay it side by side with another which perhaps has two gas burners, or even beside an induction hob. Dominos are ideal if you need an extra couple of burners beside your existing ones or even as an ideal cooking method for a small studio flat which is limited for space.
