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.

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.

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

Hobs range in price from $19 to $2,299 and in total we found prices for 101 hobs. The average price of a new hob is $700 and the 80% of hobs are priced between $181 and $1,289. The Brentwood TS337 is the cheapest hob at only $20, and Miele KM3054G is the most expensive at $2,299.

Siemens hobs start at $549 and their most expensive hob costs $1,620. The average price of Siemens hobs is $1,118 which is the second highest average price of all hob brands.

The average price of Gaggenau hobs is $999 which is the third highest average price of all hob brands. Gaggenau hobs start at $999 and their most expensive hob costs $999.

Hob Brands - Average Ratings

We have analysed 41 expert reviews and 5,748 user reviews for hobs and used these reviews to determine the average rating for each brand of hob. The top rated hob brand is Bosch with an average rating of 91%. The second best brand is AEG with 91% and the third best brand is Neff with 88%.

Biggest Hob Retailers

We found 85 current offers for hobs from eBay making it the biggest hob retailer.

When Are Most New Hobs Released?

April to June is the most common period for new hobs to be released in. That means that most of the latest hob technology was released in within the last 3 months, and now is good time to buy. The biggest month last year for new hob releases was June, with 38 new hobs released that month. April was the biggest month in 2019 for new hobs, with 37 new hobs released that month. 119 new hobs were released in June 2018 making it the biggest month that year for new hob releases.

How Fast Do Hob Prices Drop After Release?

New hobs drop in price by an average of 7% in the first 6 months after they were first released.

If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of $51 on a typical $699 new hob by waiting 6 months before buying.

Hob Types

There are a number of different technologies used by hobs to transfer heat to the cooking pan. Gas hobs use a simple flame to heat the underside of the pan and can be used with any pan type. Electric hobs come in a variety of types including ceramic, sealed plate, halogen and induction.

Induction is the most frequently found hob type amongst new hobs. We found 1,437 hobs that are induction hobs. We found 1,187 hobs that are gas hobs, making this the second most popular hob type amongst new hobs.

The best hob types are considered to be gas or electric induction. Both types are considered very controllable, heat up quickly and respond quickly to adjustments to the temperature dial.

Burners / Cooking Zones

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

Across the range of hobs, the burners / cooking zones range from 1zone(s) to 10zone(s). The burners / cooking zones of the majority of hobs range from 4zone(s) to 5zone(s). The Miele KM3054G, which is available at $2,299.00, has the most burner / cooking zone and is a 5zone(s) burner / cooking zone hob. The hob with the least burner / cooking zone is the Tefal IH201840, which is a 1zone(s) burner / cooking zone hob and sells for $86.40.

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.

Case Designs

The case design denotes whether the hob is meant to be free standing, or designed to be built into furnishings in the kitchen.

Amongst new hobs, the most popular case design is integrated. We found 3,135 hobs that are integrated hobs. We found 10 hobs that are freestanding hobs, making this the second most popular case design amongst new hobs.

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. The cheapest retailer that we found was eBay. 85 of their hob prices were the cheapest that could be found anywhere.

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. 100% of their hob prices were the cheapest that could be found anywhere.
