Gas Stove Buying Guide

Burners

The number of burners is the prime factor to look at in a gas stove. This number will depend on the headcount of your family members and how much you cook per day.

In India, you will find a stove with a maximum of 4 burners, while 2-3 burners are mostly preferred by an average Indian family.

However, depending on your need you can choose among these 4 types-

  • 4 Burner Gas Stove- for a family with more than 5 members
  • 3 Burner Gas Stove- for an average-sized family of 4-5 members
  • 2 Burner Gas Stove- for bachelors or small families with 2-3 members
  • 1 Burner Gas Stove- They can be useful for individual users

Remember that a 4 burner gas stove will consume more gas than a 2 or 3 burner gas stove but they will save a lot of cooking time.

If you have a small family with 2-3 members, a 2-3 burner gas stove is sufficient for you.

1 burner gas stoves are only for students or workers with travel type jobs. But we recommend that you should look for electric cooking options like induction cooktops.

Ignition Type

There are two different ignition options – the manual-ignition and the auto-ignition.

In manual ignition, you need a match stick or a lighter to ignite the gas.

In an automatic ignition mode, it has an in-built ignition option that works with a battery. This automatically sparks the gas as soon as you switch the stove on.

Auto-ignition is a more convenient and safer option but costlier, require careful handling and cost more in case of repairing than manual-ignition type stoves.

Burner Material

Sturdiness, corrosion resistance, heat distribution of the stove is directly related to what material burner it uses.

There are two types of burners- Brass burners and Aluminium Burners.

Brass burners are made up of alloy metals and are an excellent conductor of heat, corrosion-resistant, and durable.

Aluminium burners are another great conductor of heat but prone to corrosion. They cost much lesser than brass burners and their lifespan is much shorter than the brass burners.

Design and Finish

If you’re looking for the best gas stove for a modular kitchen then a glass top and black powder-coated bottom are recommended for most.

Depending on the budget, you can also look into the built-in gas hob that large restaurants have. They also add premium-ness to your kitchen.

Gas Stove Size

The first step is to measure your kitchen stove placement area- width and length. After that look for gas stoves that can be fitted into that area.

Gas stoves come in different shapes and sizes – rectangular, square, compact or large. The stove size will majorly depend on the number of burners it has.

Anti-skid Feet

Anti-skid feet firmly hold the stove in its place without moving. It works on any kitchen floor.

It is important to ensure your safety while cooking. Almost all top gas stove brands of India offer this feature.

Price and Warranty

For obvious reasons, the price will determine the features of any product.

Pick a budget of 5000 to 7000 rupees to get most of the premium features you’re seeking for a modular kitchen.

Warranty is standard- some brands offer 1 year, 2-years, even 5 years of manufacturer warranty.

Depending on the price, 1 or 2 years of warranty is given by most of the gas stove brands like Kaff or Elica.

Do you need a Gas Stove?

Gas stoves are not dependent on electricity. They can work anywhere. You need a gas cylinder and a stove to cook.

If you’re cooking using conventional stoves using kerosene or wooden pallets, gas stoves are an efficient upgrade.

On the other hand, having an induction cooker is complimentary to a gas stove.

Benefits of gas stoves:

  • They are easy to use and hassle-free.
  • Save your cooking time by utilizing 2-4 burners at the same time.
  • They look stylish and go hand in hand with a modular kitchen.
  • Gas stoves are safe and ISI certified.

Precautions to Consider While Using a Gas Stove

  • It is better to be safe than sorry. Though cooking with gas stoves is much simple and safe than traditional ones, there are still some safety precautions to consider. We have mentioned them below for your convenience. Make sure to follow them while cooking.
  • Never let your children play in the kitchen while cooking is happening. And moreover never let them touch any hot utensils or gas stove.
  • Before removing the hot utensil or dish from the burner, switch off the corresponding knob.
  • If you are smelling gas leakage, then make sure the control knobs are turned off. Open all the windows. Don’t switch on the lights or fans before the gas smells vanish off.
  • If you are experiencing difficulty in connecting the stove to the gas cylinder, then contact your gas dealer for help. Never connect both if you are not sure as it can cause leakage.
  • Never place plastic bowls, cardboard box or other non-cooking equipment on the burner.
  • When the gas stove is not in use, then close the cylinder valve.
  • Remove the burners and pan supports before cleaning. Soak them in hot water containing liquid soap.
  • Avoid using flammable sprays, liquids and aerosols for cleaning a gas stove.
  • After washing burners, allow them to dry under sunlight before placing them in their position.
  • Never allow the food to heat or boil for a very long time as it can put out the flame which can increase the chances of explosion.
  • Always follow the instructions and warning provided by the manufacturer. Thoroughly read the booklet and manual provided for safe handling.
  • If you smell a gas leakage, never light cigarettes, a stove or other flammable things. This can lead to severe and dangerous situations.
  • When a burner is clogged, use a straight pin or opened paper clip to unclog each hole.
  • Never line or cover the burners with foil as it can inhibit airflow to burners.
