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.

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 Brands - Average Ratings

We have analysed 8 expert reviews and 3,230 user reviews for hobs and used this data to calculate the average rating for each brand of hob. The top rated hob brand is Candy with an average rating of 92%. The second best brand is AEG with 92% and the third best brand is Hotpoint with 92%.

Biggest Hob Retailers

We found 199 current offers for hobs from eBay making it the biggest hob retailer. That is over 28 times bigger than the second biggest retailer, Amazon US for whom we found 7 current offers for hobs. The third biggest retailer is Appliances Connection with 3 current hob offers.

When Are Most New Hobs Released?

We couldn't see any prominent trend in the release dates for new hobs over the last 3 years. In April 2017 164 new hobs were released making it the biggest month that year for new hob releases. October was the biggest month in 2016 for new hobs, with 291 new hobs released that month. In 2015 most new hobs were released in April, with 233 new hobs released that month.

How Fast Do Hob Prices Drop After Release?

New hobs drop in price by an average of 9% in the first 6 months after they wer first released. If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of $79 on a typical $911 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.

We found 1,107 hobs that are induction hobs, which makes induction the most frequently found hob type amongst new hobs. Gas is the second most common hob type amongst new hobs. We found 899 hobs that are gas 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.

The burners / cooking zones of hobs range from 1 to 8. The burners / cooking zones of most hobs range from 4 to 5. The Bosch PXV845FC1E, which currently retails for $1,285.26, has the most burner / cooking zone and is a 5 burner / cooking zone hob. The Unold 58255, which is on sale for $275.75, 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.
