How to choose a gas stove: tips and tricks
Gas cookers have some advantages over electric cookers. Since the fire flares up immediately when the plate is turned on, the first advantage is time saving. When using electric cookers, wait until the hotplate is warmed to the required temperature. Also, when the gas cooker is turned off, the fire immediately disappears, while for the electric one it takes time for the plate to cool. In addition, on fire, food is prepared much faster than on hot tiles.
Due to such differences, people do not stop using gas stoves. Manufacturers are trying to invent new types of similar equipment. Because of this factor, a problem arises - how to choose a gas stove.
Consider, as an option, recessed gas panels, which differ in the variety of surfaces, as well as their design. For example, you can see panels made of enamel, glass, glass ceramics or stainless steel.
Those that are made of enamel are more affordable. However, such a surface is difficult to clean from traces of fat. Also, the enamel surface is prone to chips and scratches.
Panels made of stainless steel, are characterized by durability, strength, stylish design. They are also easily laundered. Among the shortcomings of such surfaces are fingerprints and the need to use special cleaning agents.
The surface on which the burners are located can be covered with a special heat-resistant glass or glass-ceramic layer.
How to choose a gas stove: functional features
Among the gas stoves, there are options with electric and gas ovens. Electric is more perfect, but less economical. As a rule, gas ovens are not equipped with a fan, and for heating there are two modes. However, many manufacturers began to modernize the ovens. For example, now some of them are equipped with forced air circulation, which ensures an even temperature regime throughout the interior space.
Electric ovens can be standard or multifunctional. Multifunction are distinguished by the presence of a fan distributing the heat evenly from all sides.
There are other differences that affect how to choose a gas stove. For example, many consumers like it when the technology is more functional. You can pay attention to those plates that are equipped with LED indicators for each burner, a drawer for trays, as well as a special function for self-defenseoven baking.
How to choose a gas cooker: manufacturers
Trying to save your budget, it is worth considering not only what manufacturer to choose, but also about where to buy a gas stove: in a specialized store or in a little-known home appliances store.
