Buying Guide for Gas Stove

Here are the factors you should consider before purchasing a gas stove for your home.

Number of Burners

First thing while considering a gas stove is the number of burners in the stove. Most of the households have 2 burner stoves in India. However, the trend of 3 and 4 burners is fast catching up.

BurnerIdeal family sizeGas consumption
4 Burner Stove5+High
3 Burner Stove4-5Medium
2 Burner Stove2-3Medium
1 Burner Stove1Low

Number of burners depends on family size, affordability and need. This chart shows ideal number of burners according to family size. However, this is not hard & fast, and even smaller families are using 3 and 4 burner gas stoves because they provide more convenience.

Type of Ignition

There are two types of ignition systems- manual ignition, and auto-ignition system.

Auto-ignition system comes with an in-built igniting. As soon as you turn the knob clockwise, the ignition system is activated and gas is sparked automatically. On the other hand, manual ignition system requires you to ignite the gas with the help of a lighter.

Manual Ignition vs Auto Ignition

 Manual IgnitionAuto Ignition
SafetyMediumHigh
BatteryNot NeededNeeded
PriceMediumHigh

Manual is the traditional method of ignition while many latest models of gas stoves and kitchen hobs are equipped with with auto-ignition. Manual ignition are slightly more popular as compared to auto-ignition. You can choose any one of these according to your budget and preferences.

Note: If you buy auto-ignition gas stove, then you will have to change the battery regularly. In some of the gas stoves, we have come across battery leakage issues as well. This does not damage the stove but, the auto-ignition will stop working after this. You will always have a choice to shift to manual mode in that case.

Burner Material

Burner material is an important aspect if you want efficient heat distribution and durability. Burners are majorly of three types- brass, alloy, aluminium.

Brass BurnersBrass is itself an alloy of copper and zinc. It is a good conductor of heat. Thus, it aids in efficient heating. On top of it, the durability and resistance to corrosion is high in this material. Brass burners should always be the first choice for a buyer even though they costlier as compared to other options.

Alloy Burners– There are alloys of brass, alloys of aluminium and other similar allows in the market. This helps the brands to cut cost and bring inexpensive gas stoves for the consumers. The durability and heat efficiency will vary on the type of alloy and the ratio of metals used and are not fixed. As a rule of thumb, brass alloy should be given more preference as compared to aluminum alloy. In any case, you should give these allow-based burners less preference as compared to brass burners.

Aluminum Burners– Aluminum used in some burners because it is also a good conductor of heat. However, it has lower melting point, due to which its lifespan is not as good as brass burners. Pure aluminium burners should be given last preference.

Finish

Gas stoves usually come with either steel finish or glass finish. Both of the types have their own advantages and disadvantages.

Stainless Steel finish is easy to clean and maintain and it is inexpensive as compared to glass finish. On the other hand, glass finish is requires regular cleaning and maintenance and is more expensive.

Note: Glass finish is considered more modern and if you have chimney in your house, then you glass finish is more preferred. Ideally, black, toughened-glass finish is most sought-after. If the brand does not specify the type of glass then it can mean that is not toughened glass. Regular glass can shatter easily, therefore it should be avoided.

Size

2, 3, and 4 burner gas stoves come in different sizes. The length of gas stoves usually ranges from 57 cm to 73 cm, while the width of the stoves can range from 27 to 57 cm. As you can see there is considerable differences between them. Therefore, you should you should choose gas stove depending upon the available space in your kitchen counter.

Needless to say, larger stoves are typically used in larger kitchens and a smaller home should use a 2 burner stove. You should also keep in mind the space needed to place your food and other items in the kitchen before purchasing.

Anti-Skid Feet

You should ensure that your gas stove comes with anti-skid feet with rubber heels so that you can place your stove on the platform without the fear of skidding. Anti-skid feet also reduces the squeaking noise that other types of stand can make. Good thing is that almost all reputed brands offer gas stoves with anti-skid feet.

Pipe Inlet

You should check the position of gas pipe inlet and see if you will be able to connect your stove comfortably with the cylinder before you buy a gas stove.

Gas Savings

As discussed, more number of burners usually result in higher gas usage. Thus, you can consider purchasing a 2 or 3 burner stove for lower gas usage. Also, an efficient burner is also important for reducing gas wastage. Any burner that gives strong blue-colored flames is always better in term of energy efficiency as compared to burners that do not give strong flames

Spacing Between Burners

The spacing between burners is important when you go for the 3-burner or 4-burner gas stoves. Space between the burners should be enough to place large and small cooking utensils side-by-side.

Warranty

You should ensure that your gas stove comes with at least 1 year of warranty. Usually, gas stoves come with either 1 year or 2 years of warranty. Many models do not come with a warranty on glass, however there are some models that give you warranty on toughened glass as well.

It’s important to read the warranty details carefully and check which parts are covered and which are excluded. All the reputed gas stove brands have clear warranty details embedded.
