Gas hobs are perfect for a traditional-style kitchen and, with easy control over flame strength, are great for flexible cooking techniques. While they’re typically 60cm wide, NEFF sells their gas hobs at 60cm, 75cm and 90cm wide, with 4 different designs to choose from. Further to this, they’re equipped with an array of cooking features to make cooking easy and enjoyable. Check out these features and designs you could have:-
Electrically powered, NEFF ceramic hobs have ‘heating zones’. These contain coiled metal elements under a layer of ceramic glass which are warmed up when the hob is turned on. Ceramic hobs are easy-to-clean due to their smooth surface and are also more affordable than induction hobs, which makes them a favourite in family homes. However, they tend to be slower to heat up than induction or gas and don’t distribute heat as evenly. NEFF sells ceramic hobs at a width of 30cm (domino), 60cm or 80cm, giving you plenty of sizing options and is available in beautiful black ceramic glass. Additionally, it has some interesting features:-
Induction hobs and ceramic hobs are, at a glance, extremely similar – they both have a layer of ceramic glass with ‘heating zones’. However, the difference between the two is rooted in the way that they emit heat. An induction hob uses powerful, high frequency electromagnets that heat the pan itself rather than the hob, and the changes in heat are instantaneous. Some of NEFF’s induction hobs are installed with an iinnovative ntegrated ventilation system, which frees up more space in your kitchen. This range features sizes: 30cm, 60cm, 70cm, 80cm, and 90cm in width - even more choice!
A domino hob is a term given to a small rectangular hob with 2 cooking spaces, making them very effective in small spaces - perfect for a flat or studio apartment. Due to their nature, they allow for a greater specialisation in cooking techniques. NEFF offer two gas domino hobs, one induction domino hob, an electric domino hob and a Teppan Yaki hob, which is a Japanese cooking technique. The features that are provided with each of these domino hobs are associated with the range of hobs they are part of, such as induction, so we won’t confuse you by listing more features – just check them out on the website here!
As we’ve already mentioned, some hobs have pre-installed integrated ventilation systems, which means you can say goodbye to your noisy extractor fan! These vented hobs are all induction hobs too, so come with all the advantages of an induction hob and more. These hobs come with features such as a high extraction rate, automatic air sensor, reduced noise, and space saving installation.
