Key Features

Only Gas
Four Burners / Cooking Zones
Very Small Power
Has an Electronic Ignition
Has a Flame Failure Device
Only Gas

The hob of this hob is gas, which is the most frequently found hob type on 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.

Manufacturer's Description

Essentials CGHOBB16 Gas Hob comes with four burners at three different power levels for maximum flexibility. With simple to use instant auto ignition dials you can begin cooking with the CGHOBB16 sooner, while the steel surface with rounded corners makes cleaning a breeze. Because of the straight design of the pan supports you can easily slide your pots and pans to different burners as required. The flame failure safety device automatically cuts the gas supply if a flame accidentally extinguishes, which eliminates the risk of gas leakage for your peace of mind. For maximum flexibility, the hob is liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) convertible and includes an LPG conversion.
