Hob Buying Guide

A hob is a collection of gas or electric burners arranged together in a single unit with a unified power source. While they are usually included with an oven as part of a cooker set, they can also be bought seperately. We have a large selection of hobs in all different shapes, sizes and colours, allowing you to pick the perfect hob for your needs, as well as one that complements the style of your kitchen.

Burner Type

When choosing a hob, first you must decide whether you want gas or electric burners. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

Gas Hob: Gas burners have no heat-up time, so are far quicker to use, and the heat levels are easier to control than electric. Gas flames tend to spread more evenly across the bottom of pans, meaning quicker heating and more even cooking. They are also cheaper to run than electric hobs, saving you money on daily use.

Electric Hob: Electric hot plates take time to heat up, and tend to have a far more concentrated heat radius, leading to uneven heat distribution with large pans. They are also more expensive to run than gas hobs - however they are easier to clean, and significantly easier to set up and use.

All our hobs are graded on their energy efficiency. The higher the grade, the less energy will be used during cooking, and the cheaper the hob will be to run. Look for a hob graded at A++ or above for the best efficiency in daily use.

Number Of Burners

Another consideration is the number of cooking zones (burners or hot plates) on the hob. Most hobs have 4 burners spaced evenly across the top of the machine - however some models have as few as 2, or as many as 7. These burners will be of differing sizes and shapes - most 4-burner hobs contain a small, medium, large and extra-large burner, suitable for a range of different pots and pans. While 3-4 burners will be sufficient for the majority of users, people that find themselves cooking a lot of dishes at once may wish to look at extra-large hobs that can fit several different pans at once.

Specialist Burners

It's not only the number of burners that is important - several more advanced hobs also contain specialist burners as well. These can include:

Fish Burner: A long, thin burner, large enough to fit a whole fish on at once.

Wok Hob: An extra-large circular burner, suitable for the large flat bottoms of woks.

Teppanyaki Hob: A large, flat, square burner, suitable for the preparation of teppanyaki - a Japanese form of cooking that involves cooking ingredients at high heat on a metal plate.

Power Level

The power level of the hobs are measured in watts (W). The larger the power level, the quicker and more efficiently food will be cooked. Hobs also have a different amount of power settings - on some more basic models, this can be little more than 'low' or 'high'. However more advanced models feature a large number of power settings, allowing for extreme precision when cooking.

Hob Retailers, Prices and Features

Hob Prices

We currently list 1287 hobs ranging from £14 to £1,980. A new hob costs on average £458 and 80% of hobs are priced between £121 and £928. The Asko HI 1975 G is the most expensive hob that we found at £1,979, and the Techwood TPE-104 is the cheapest at only £14.

We found 607 current offers for hobs from eBay making it the biggest hob retailer. That is significantly bigger than the second biggest retailer, Amazon UK for whom we found 504 current offers for hobs. The third biggest retailer is Currys with 319 current hob offers.

When Are Most New Hobs Released?

We couldn't see any obvious pattern in the release dates for new hobs over the last 3 years. In April 2017 189 new hobs were released making it the biggest month that year for new hob releases. September was the biggest month in 2016 for new hobs, with 168 new hobs released that month. The biggest month in 2015 for new hob releases was April, with 249 new hobs released that month.

How Fast Do Hob Prices Drop After Release?

On average, in the first 6 months after release, hobs drop in price by 3%. If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of £12 on a typical £458 new hob by waiting 6 months before buying.

Colours

We found 1,286 hobs that are hobs that have a Black coloured, which makes Black the most frequently found colour amongst new hobs. Stainless steel is the second most common colour amongst new hobs. We found 546 hobs that are hobs that have a Stainless steel coloured.

Burners

This indicates the number of burners (gas) or cooking zones (electric) on the hob.

The burners of hobs range from 1 to 8. The burners of most hobs range from 4 to 5. The WhirlpoolSMP 778 has the most burner. This hob is an 8 burner hob and can be purchased for £849.00. The WhirlpoolSMP 778, which currently retails for £24.33, has the least burner and is a 1 burner hob.

More burners/cooking zones mean that you can cook more food at once, making the hob more efficient and meaning you can prepare large meals faster.

Hob Types

This is the type of power source used for the hobs - i.e gas, electric, etc.

We found 896 hobs that are electric hobs, which makes electric the most frequently found hob type amongst new hobs. We found 691 hobs that are gas hobs, making this the second most frequently found hob type amongst new hobs.

Case Designs

We found 1,658 hobs that are Built-in hobs, which makes this the most common case design amongst new hobs. We found 110 hobs that are Tabletop hobs, making Tabletop the second most popular case design amongst new hobs.

Biggest Hob Retailers

The biggest hob retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 607 current hob offers from eBay. The second biggest hob retailer is Amazon UK with 504 offers. That means eBay is significantly bigger than Amazon UK when it comes to hobs. Currys is the third biggest retailer with 319 current offers.

eBay most frequently has the cheapest hob prices (found to be cheapest for 368 hobs).

Proportion of Hobs for Which Each Retailer is Cheapest?

The retailer that most frequently offered the cheapest price on hobs is eBay and offers the cheapest price on 60.6% of its hobs.
