* Review of the best according to 12 motivi per cui non dovresti mai rimpiangere qualsiasi decisione tu abbia mai preso the editorial board of expertology.ru. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide.
Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.
The home appliance market is mind-bogglingly wide, and even large appliances are so diverse that it is difficult to make a choice. Expertology specialists have prepared for you a list of models of modern gas stoves, which will help you navigate, avoid mistakes and make a truly successful purchase.
How to choose a gas stove.
As additional functionality or any innovations appear in new models of gas stoves, it makes sense to periodically update our ideas about the selection criteria. This way we will be able to get the maximum of technological advances from the modern market, and thereby increase the quality of life.
We have studied in detail the market of household appliances at the turn of 2020 and 2021, followed its trends, paid attention to all the bright technological innovations. As is often the case, some models have been in stable demand for many years, while others are being supplanted by similar, but more interesting solutions. We will pay attention to both in order to cover the requirements, expectations and requests of our readers as much as possible.
In assessing specific models and developing recommendations for choice, we were guided by the results of our own research, taking into account the consolidated opinion of the expert communities. So, for example, we took into account the set of recommendations of the most respected consumer community in the UK "Which?" We also reviewed the current ranking of the best gas stoves compiled by Wirecutter, the New York Times' product research and consumer advocacy division.
We have applied the experience and conclusions of foreign colleagues to the realities of the Russian market of household appliances, thereby developing a set of recommendations that is as close as possible to the real needs of domestic consumers. We will not repeat the obvious things that are clear to everyone, but will draw your attention to questions in which doubts or an error of choice may arise due to misunderstanding.
The most used part of a freestanding gas stove is the hob. The oven is used much less frequently on average. Therefore, it is the characteristics of the hob that we pay the most attention to (but we also don’t forget about the oven).
The most common layout of the burners is two medium-sized, one large and one small - conventionally coffee. In the context of specific models, the manufacturer may focus on a large burner - for example, adding a second or even a third flame circuit. In fact, there are more and more such models on the market, and they are not necessarily expensive at all.
For a large family, it makes sense to look after models with a large number of burners - for example, five. In these ranges, the burner with a double or triple flame circuit is in the middle.
The only thing to be warned against here is to be extremely thoughtful when choosing a five-burner model in terms of compatibility with your cookware. Sometimes it turns out that a conventional favorite pot, placed in the center on the WOK-burner, takes up too much space, not allowing other burners to be used properly.
Lattice material and shape.
Almost everyone agrees that cast iron grates in gas stoves are preferable to steel ones, since the latter deform over time. The flip side of this property of cast iron grates is that they are not very easy to clean, they can be really difficult to wash.
