Making pancakes, simmering vegetables or searing the meat for your hamburgers: the hob is at the heart of your kitchen. Gas, induction or vitroceramic, high-tech or more basic, there's a hob to suit every taste and budget. To help you plan your kitchen, ixina will help you choose the hob that's right for you.
Ideal for boiling water in a flash, precisely searing meat and effortless grilling. Induction hobs are efficient as they only heat when in contact with a pan. The inductor generates a magnetic field under the hob, which increases in temperature very quickly. This means that the heat zones distribute the heat evenly and instantaneously. A wide range of hi-tech functions is available for maximum comfort:
independent timer for each heating zone;
touch keys for direct access to useful functions (keep warm, simmer, boil, sear, delayed start, etc.);
modular cooking zones;
All this makes it more expensive, but also more energy efficient, more precise in terms of cooking and safer for the whole family.
Induction has unrivalled power flexibility, from 50W to 5000W on an ultra-efficient heating zone vs a gas hob
Safety: its surface cools very quickly after use, anti-overflow safety
Requires a suitable set of saucepans or kitchen equipment (cast iron or steel).
This technology precedes induction and is therefore more affordable. The heating zones heat gradually and consistently, by conduction (ideal for stews). This means it takes longer and may also heat up a surface slightly larger than your pan.
Advantages and disadvantages:
+ Their smooth glass surface is easy to clean.
+ Vitroceramic hobs accommodate all types of kitchen utensils.
– They consume more energy than induction.
– More limited and less regular power.
Whether connected to bottled or mains gas, gas hobs are practical and efficient and still very popular. And for good reason: you can control the burners’ flame at a glance to switch between low, medium or high heat. Gas hobs are now easy to clean. and compatible with all cookware. Metal, glass and terracotta are all suitable for cooking over a flame. Note that gas hobs are becoming more modern with electronics now involved! Automatic timer functions now exist, for example.
Price: a gas hob is still the cheapest option.
Features: basic and easy to use.
Cleaning grease-encrusted grates and burners makes maintenance difficult.
These combine gas and vitroceramic or gas and induction, offers you the advantages of both. Gas failure or power cut? Nothing can stop you from cooking!
Advantages and disadvantages
+ Versatility: ability to adapt your cooking methods to your recipes.
– Hard to clean.
