Why Has it Scored 70?

Essentials is a mediocre hob brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better hobs are available.
This hob has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has an electronic ignition
Has a flame failure device
Only gas
Very small power

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each hob by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the hob is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec hobs come to market, the older hobs will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.

Key Reasons For and Against

Has an electronic ignition
Has a flame failure device
Four burners / cooking zones
Only gas
Very small power
Only Gas

The hob of this hob is gas, which is typical of many hobs. Gas hobs use a simple flame to heat the underside of the cooking pan. Gas heats the pan quickly and is very responsive to changes to the temperature dial. Gas hobs are a popular choice with chefs and have some advantages over electric halogen hobs when it comes to heating unusual shaped pans such as woks.
