Gas stoves are the most common appliance (like back bone) of a kitchen.
While purchasing a gas stove, first thing to consider is – number of burners you require. This depends on your family size and number of dishes you have to cook at peak hours (like in the mornings).
Basically, there are four types of gas stove burners in the Indian market.
4 Burner Gas Stove – Best suited for medium to large families (like more than 5 members).
3 Burner Gas Stove – Best suited for a family having 4 – 5 members
2 Burner Gas Stove – suitable for small families with 2 – 3 members
1 Burner Gas Stove – perfect for bachelors and individuals
Apart from that, burner material also plays a vital role. Most of the burners are made up of either brass or aluminum. Among them, brass material is the best – as they distribute heat evenly to cook the food quickly, thus saving the gas. And moreover, they are weather and corrosion resistant.
Some modern gas stoves have auto-ignition – which is safe and convenient to use. However, they are a bit expensive (ranging between Rs 5000 to Rs 10000).
