Hob Buying Guide

A hob is a collection of gas or electric burners arranged together in a single unit with a unified power source. While they are usually included with an oven as part of a cooker set, they can also be bought seperately. We have a large selection of hobs in all different shapes, sizes and colours, allowing you to pick the perfect hob for your needs, as well as one that complements the style of your kitchen.

Burner Type

When choosing a hob, first you must decide whether you want gas or electric burners. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

Gas Hob: Gas burners have no heat-up time, so are far quicker to use, and the heat levels are easier to control than electric. Gas flames tend to spread more evenly across the bottom of pans, meaning quicker heating and more even cooking. They are also cheaper to run than electric hobs, saving you money on daily use.

Electric Hob: Electric hot plates take time to heat up, and tend to have a far more concentrated heat radius, leading to uneven heat distribution with large pans. They are also more expensive to run than gas hobs - however they are easier to clean, and significantly easier to set up and use.

loading image
All our hobs are graded on their energy efficiency. The higher the grade, the less energy will be used during cooking, and the cheaper the hob will be to run. Look for a hob graded at A++ or above for the best efficiency in daily use.
loading image

Number Of Burners

Another consideration is the number of cooking zones (burners or hot plates) on the hob. Most hobs have 4 burners spaced evenly across the top of the machine - however some models have as few as 2, or as many as 7. These burners will be of differing sizes and shapes - most 4-burner hobs contain a small, medium, large and extra-large burner, suitable for a range of different pots and pans. While 3-4 burners will be sufficient for the majority of users, people that find themselves cooking a lot of dishes at once may wish to look at extra-large hobs that can fit several different pans at once.

Specialist Burners

It's not only the number of burners that is important - several more advanced hobs also contain specialist burners as well. These can include:

Fish Burner: A long, thin burner, large enough to fit a whole fish on at once.

Wok Hob: An extra-large circular burner, suitable for the large flat bottoms of woks.

Teppanyaki Hob: A large, flat, square burner, suitable for the preparation of teppanyaki - a Japanese form of cooking that involves cooking ingredients at high heat on a metal plate.

Power Level

The power level of the hobs are measured in watts (W). The larger the power level, the quicker and more efficiently food will be cooked. Hobs also have a different amount of power settings - on some more basic models, this can be little more than 'low' or 'high'. However more advanced models feature a large number of power settings, allowing for extreme precision when cooking.

Hob Retailers, Prices and Features

Hob Prices

We currently list 140 hobs ranging from $14 to $2,345. A new hob costs on average $722 and 80% of hobs are priced between $172 and $1,248. The AEG HC452601EB is the most expensive hob that we found at $2,345, and the Brentwood TS-322 is the cheapest at only $14.

Hob Brands - Price Range

The highest average hob price out of all brands is KitchenAid hobs with an average price of $2,209. KitchenAid hobs range in price from $2,209 to $2,209.

The average price of Miele hobs is $1,599 which is the second highest average price of all hob brands. Miele hobs start at $1,199 and their most expensive hob costs $1,999.

The third highest average hob price out of all brands is Bauknecht hobs with an average price of $1,082. Bauknecht hobs range in price from $1,082 to $1,082.

Hob Brands - Average Ratings

We have analysed 6 expert reviews and 2,544 user reviews for hobs from across the internet and used these reviews to determine the average rating for each brand of hob. AEG is the top rated hob brand with an average rating of 92%. Hotpoint is the second best brand with 92% and Beko is the third best brand with 91%.

Biggest Hob Retailers

We found 273 current offers for hobs from Cameo Kitchens making it the biggest hob retailer. That is more than twice as big as the second biggest retailer, eBay for whom we found 124 current offers for hobs. The third biggest retailer is Amazon US with 5 current hob offers.

When Are Most New Hobs Released?

We looked at the release dates for new hobs over the last 3 years, but couldn't see any clear pattern. In 2017 most new hobs were released in April, with 164 new hobs released that month. 298 new hobs were released in October 2016 making it the biggest month that year for new hob releases. The biggest month in 2015 for new hob releases was April, with 243 new hobs released that month.

How Fast Do Hob Prices Drop After Release?

New hobs drop in price by an average of 10% in the first 6 months after they wer first released. If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of $74 on a typical $722 new hob by waiting 6 months before buying.

Hob Types

This is the type of power source used for the hobs - i.e gas, electric, etc.

We found 966 hobs that are induction hobs, which makes induction the most frequently found hob type amongst new hobs. Gas is the second most frequently found hob type amongst new hobs. We found 770 hobs that are gas hobs.

Burners / Cooking Zones

This indicates the number of burners (gas) or cooking zones (electric) on the hob.

Across the range of hobs, the burners / cooking zones range from 1 to 8. The burners / cooking zones of most hobs range from 4 to 5. The hob with the most burner / cooking zone is the Siemens ED845FWB1E, which is a 5 burner / cooking zone hob and is on sale for $1,107.97. The Avanti IH1800L1B-IS, which is available at $70.66, has the least burner / cooking zone and is a 1 burner / cooking zone hob.

More burners/cooking zones mean that you can cook more food at once, making the hob more efficient and meaning you can prepare large meals faster.

Which Are the Cheapest Retailers for Hobs?

The chart below helps you decide which retailer is normally cheapest for buying hobs. For each retailer it shows the total number of hobs where they currently have a market leading price. The chart below helps you decide which retailer is normally cheapest for buying hobs. For each retailer we took all of their prices and looked at what proportion of those prices where the cheapest on the market.

Proportion of Hobs for Which Each Retailer is Cheapest?

Assessing how cheap each retailer is for hobs by counting the number of cheapest prices for that retailer, makes the retailers that offer the greatest number of hob prices more likely to offer the greatest number of cheapest prices. The chart below considers the proportion of each retailer's hob prices that are the cheapest compared to other retailers. The cheapest retailer that we found using this approach was eBay. 98.4% of their hob prices were the cheapest that could be found anywhere.
