Things to Consider before buying a Gas Stove

1. Number of Burners

One of the major factor to look in a gas stove is no. of burners. It mainly depends upon the total no. of person in family and how much you cook on daily basis.

In India, you will find maximum 4 burners in a gas stove and mostly you will find 2-3 burners of gas stove in Indian kitchens.

  • 1 Burner Gas Stove- for an individual users
  • 2 Burner Gas Stove- for small families with maximum 2 to 3 members
  • 3 Burner Gas Stove- for normal Indian family with strength of 4-5 members
  • 4 Burner Gas Stove- for a family with more than 6 members

Every gas stove comes with different features, that only depend upon the size of family and needs. If you are looking for 4 burner gas stove which will save lot more time but consumes more gas than other burner gas stoves. If you have a small family of 2-3 members then 2 burners is more than enough for your family. If you are an individual and don’t have that much of budget, then go for a 1 burner gas stove.

2. Ignition Type: Automatic or Manual?

In today’s era we have two kind of ignitions – the auto-ignition and the manual-ignition. In auto ignition you don’t need any lighter or matchstick. It comes with an in-built ignition which only needs a battery. It sparks the gas when you switch the stove on. In manual ignition, you need a lighter or match stick to spark the gas.

Automatic ignition is a more safer and easier option than manual-ignition, the major reason behind that is they don’t need any source of fire to switch on. Now the major concern is the price. As it is more easier to use, it costs more and required extra care.

Note: If you are going to buy auto-ignition gas stove, then always keep in mind to change the battery time to time. If in case you forget to change the battery, then you can switch it to the manual ignition mode.

3. Burner Material

When you plan to buy a gas stove, you plan to use it for a while, so the material becomes a key factor to consider. Sturdiness, corrosion resistance, heat distribution of the stove is directly related to what material burner it uses. Usually, you will find two types of burners-

  • Brass Burners– Everyone of us know that Brass is a good conductor of heat. Brass is a mixture of two or more metals and comes in a gold color. Why people prefer brass burner because they are corrosion resistant, that is the major reason it is more durable and provide long life to the burner and gas stove. In brass burner the distribution of heat is equal as compared to other other burners.
  • Aluminum Burners-Aluminum is also the conductor of heat but it is less costlier than brass. The major disadvantage of using aluminium burner is they are less resistant to corrosion and that is the only reason they are not durable to long period. If you have a budget issue then you can opt for a aluminium burner gas stove.

4. Design and Finish: Affordable or Expensive?

Mainly all gas stoves comes in steel or glass body. If you are having a modular kitchen, then you definitely need a glass body gas stove to give the perfect look to the kitchen. In market glass body gas stove comes with a stylish finish, spill-proof glass design, designer knobs and burners, bold colors. The glass tops are expensive and stylish, while the stainless steel stoves are cheaper and ordinary.

5. Stove Size: How Much Space your Kitchen has?

Gas stoves come in different shapes and sizes. While some are big and rectangle, others are compact and square. The stove size will majorly depend on the numbers of burners it has. Do you have an idea of how much space your kitchen has? If not, then get the measurements done right now and then choose something that fits into that space. Stove dimensions are always mentioned in the product details.

If you have a large kitchen platform choose a flat large design that will match your style and also your requiems. On the other hand, when you have smaller kitchen areas, you will surely not like a crowded kitchen platform. Moreover, you require space to keep your essentials while cooking. So, it’s better to choose smaller models which are more compact.

Bottom Line: You know your kitchen space, and you are one who can tell what size goes best for your kitchen. Larger gas stoves with many burners are often used in restaurants and homes with larger kitchen space. If you have a smaller kitchen space, there is no other way than choosing a smaller sized stove. So, we suggest, don’t focus on the size too much. Big stoves or smaller stoves, as long as they have good quality burners, they will cook you delicious food.

6. Anti-skid Feet: Would you like your Stove moving while you Cook?

You don’t always cook rice and daal. Some dishes need heavy stirring, and some needs to apply pressure for smashing or squeezing while cooking. In those cases, do you want your gas stove to move and wobble while you are cooking? Sounds dangerous, right?

Look for anti-skid feet with rubber heels. This will keep the stove in its place without wobbling or making an annoying squeaking noise.

Bottom Line: Anti-skid feet firmly hold the stove in its place without moving. It works on any kitchen floor. It is important to ensure your safety while cooking. Almost all top gas stove brands of India offer this feature.

7. Price and Warranty: Secured Life of Your Stove

Your budget is the ultimate decider of everything. Some customers are less worried about the price while some others have a strict budget. For obvious reasons, lesser the price fewer the features, similarly more the features and aesthetics, higher the price and fasciitis. But that doesn’t mean you will use all the features that it will offer. And you probably don’t want to pay extra for the features that you will never use. However, a warranty is something that you must and must consider. It is true that gas stoves often require repayments, and if you are unlucky, chances are, it can stop working within a few days or months. A warranty becomes your peace of mind for another year or two.

Bottom Line:  It’s better to decide a budget and then look for models that fall within your budget. Always look for models that offer at least 1 year of warranty on the product. All reputable brands have warranty details. Read it carefully and don’t miss any points. There might be cases where some parts are under warranty coverage and not the entire unit. Be careful about it, since they will charge you if you damage something which is not under warranty coverage.
