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.

Biggest Hob Retailers

We found 123 current offers for hobs from eBay making it the biggest hob retailer.

When Are Most New Hobs Released?

Most new hobs tend to be released between April and June. If you wait until April 2020 then you might be able to get better features on your hob. It's also worth keeping in mind that the price of the current hobs tend to drop off when the next models are released. The biggest month last year for new hob releases was June, with 117 new hobs released that month. In April 2017, 168 new hobs were released making it the biggest month that year for new hob releases. 271 new hobs were released in October 2016 making it the biggest month that year for new hob releases.

How Fast Do Hob Prices Drop After Release?

On average, in the first 6 months after release, hobs drop in price by 9%.

If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of $57 on a typical $652 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.

Amongst new hobs, the most common hob type is induction. We found 1,329 hobs that are induction hobs. The second most popular hob type amongst new hobs is gas. We found 1,049 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.

Across the range of hobs, the burners / cooking zones range from 1zone(s) to 10zone(s). The burners / cooking zones of most hobs range from 4zone(s) to 5zone(s). The Whirlpool SMP 778, which sells for $1,045.72, has the most burner / cooking zone and is an 8zone(s) burner / cooking zone hob. The Klarstein Captain Cook, which is available at $277.12, has the least burner / cooking zone and is a 1zone(s) 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.

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 frequently found case design is integrated. We found 311 hobs that are integrated hobs. We found 10 hobs that are freestanding hobs, making this the second most frequently found case design amongst new hobs.
