This glossy monochrome open-concept cook space has a sleek look throughout, with an induction hob installed in the kitchen island (interior design AKD3sign).
If you’re in the process of planning your kitchen renovations, this might have crossed your mind — which type of hob to get?
The residents of this home often host parties with guests from overseas, and wanted a fully-equipped kitchen with a gas hob (interior design 0932 Design Consultants).
While the trusty gas hob is reliable and has served generations well, on the other hand, the high-tech induction hob is so much more fashionable! We’ve made a simple table to compare the various pros and cons.
|Induction Hob||Gas Hob|
|Pros||No exposed flames so it's safer to use||Has a visible flame so you can "see" the heat level|
|Easy to clean as it has a flat surface||Cheaper|
|Looks good, having a modern, sleek appearance||Compatible with most cookware|
|Cooking temperature can be easily adjusted and controlled||More versatile when it comes to specific cooking techniques|
|Heats up quickly||More "powerful" and can achieve higher temperatures|
|Kitchen will be cooler as no heat is produced|
|Cons||Generally costs more||Requires more effort when it comes to cleaning|
|You have to buy specific cookware||Over time it will wear out and have an "old" appearance|
|Might not be suitable for specific types of cooking (e.g charring, cooking with wok)||Kitchen will be considerably warmer due to the fire|
|If there is a power outage you won't be able to use it|
