Hobs and hotplates have moved on leaps and bounds over the past 10 years, with the introduction of electric induction hobs, these chic modern surfaces can look as understated as a piece of glass with touch button controls. Traditional gas burner hobs are also a longstanding favourite of the traditional home chef. Hobs and hotplates can be placed independently to ovens allowing them to be installed almost anywhere in your kitchen.
The humble hob. Staple of the modern kitchen, where would we be without them? From the traditional gas burners of old, through the ceramics and onwards and upwards, to the miraculous induction hobs of the future, there is certainly no shortage of styles for the would-be hob-chef. Ease of installation is the huge advantage here, these can be installed into almost any flat surface, perfect for a kitchen island or kitchens where space is too limited for a full oven cooker.
The latest innovation in hob technology is the induction hob. Induction means electricity is generated through magnetism, its full name is 'electromagnetic induction'; it works by heating the interior of the pan but not the surface of the hob itself, meaning you can put your hand on the hob and not feel any heat and fry an egg moments later.
