Types of Hobs Explained

There are three different types of Hob that you can choose for your kitchen. Each one has its own unique benefits, styles and features. Making it extremely useful to understand the differences between these models before making your choice.

  • GAS

    The Gas Hob is an essential part of any kitchen. Renowned for their reliability, our gas-powered hobs sit within an available countertop or above an integrated oven if enough space for ventilation allows.
