18 best hobs — Rating 2022

Cook­ing sur­faces dif­fer not only in the type of pan­el (elec­tric, gas, com­bined), but also in the mate­r­i­al of man­u­fac­ture:

  1. Enam­el. Inex­pen­sive and durable mate­r­i­al, but poor­ly cleaned of greasy drops and car­bon deposits. In addi­tion, over time, scratch­es on the sur­face may occur.
  2. Cast iron. A fair­ly bud­get option, but, unlike enam­el, it is most resis­tant to dam­age. But it can­not boast of ease of care, it is quite dif­fi­cult to clean.
  3. Stain­less steel. Wear-resis­tant and impact-resis­tant mate­r­i­al, with excel­lent dura­bil­i­ty. But dur­ing oper­a­tion, fin­ger­prints often remain on the sur­face, which are cleaned only with spe­cial means.
  4. Strained glass. Such mate­r­i­al is eas­i­er to wash, but it is con­sid­ered unre­li­able.
  5. glass ceram­ics. Much stronger than tem­pered glass, styl­ish and easy to clean. The dis­ad­van­tage is the high price.

Also, hobs dif­fer in the type of grate. The cast-iron grate is not afraid of high tem­per­a­tures, it does not burn and remains unchanged for a long time. But here the impact resis­tance indi­ca­tors are quite low. Steel is con­sid­ered stronger, more reli­able, eas­i­er to main­tain and at the same time inex­pen­sive. But over time, such a grill will begin to burn.

These are the stan­dard cri­te­ria for hobs. There are still a lot of points that you should pay atten­tion to before buy­ing (heat­ing zone, type of con­trol, timer, sound indi­ca­tor, etc.). In order for buy­ers to make a prof­itable pur­chase, our experts have com­piled a rat­ing of the best hobs, accord­ing to users and spe­cial­ists from war­ran­ty ser­vice cen­ters.

Rating of the best hobs

The best electric hobs

The elec­tric pan­el is pow­ered by the mains, easy to install, aes­thet­ic, prac­ti­cal and safe. The main dis­ad­van­tage is the high rate of elec­tric­i­ty con­sump­tion.

Beko HIC 64401

Rat­ing: 4.6

Beko HIC 64401

Con­sid­er one of the most suc­cess­ful exam­ples of house­hold appli­ances of the famous Turk­ish brand Beko — the hob HIC 64401. Recall that Beko is a well-known brand of main­ly bud­get and mid-price house­hold appli­ances. It is famous for its qual­i­ty fac­tor and reli­a­bil­i­ty, and in the high­est price seg­ment it is often also an exquis­ite design.

In par­tic­u­lar, it is cred­i­ble that Beko house­hold appli­ances — from ket­tles to refrig­er­a­tors and air con­di­tion­ers — are wide­ly used in Turkey itself. In the home­land of the trade­mark, Beko appli­ances are found every­where — in hous­es and apart­ments, in shops, in offices, in gov­ern­ment insti­tu­tions.

This mod­el is one of the most pur­chased on Russ­ian trad­ing floors and has per­haps the most mas­sive feed­back from real buy­ers. The secret is sim­ple — a text­book com­bi­na­tion of price and qual­i­ty, reli­a­bil­i­ty, reli­a­bil­i­ty and avail­abil­i­ty in every­thing — man­age­ment, con­fig­u­ra­tion and main­te­nance.

It has every­thing you need and there are no unnec­es­sary fea­tures that only increase the cost, while the ben­e­fits are doubt­ful. In total there are four cook­ing zones with the fol­low­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics: front left — 210 mm and 2300 W of pow­er; front right — 160 mm and 1500 W of pow­er; rear left — 140 mm and 1200 W; rear right — 180 mm and 1800 watts. A big plus, which is point­ed out by both testers and ordi­nary users, is the pres­ence of a quick warm-up mode.

Of the use­ful addi­tion­al func­tions, it is worth high­light­ing child pro­tec­tion, a resid­ual heat indi­ca­tor, and a burn­er timer.

From the pos­i­tive aspects of this pan­el, users high­light main­ly the most obvi­ous and under­stand­able things — quick warm-up, ease of oper­a­tion, ease of main­te­nance, con­cise but styl­ish design. Among the short­com­ings, some users point to a too sen­si­tive pro­tec­tive auto-shut­down. It is unusu­al for many when the stove turns off when water gets on the con­trol pan­el or when it is touched by a pan. How­ev­er, oth­er users, on the con­trary, wel­come this solu­tion, since safe­ty is para­mount.

From the review of a Yandex.Market user with the sta­tus “Mas­ter of life of lev­el 5”: “A good stove for 4 burn­ers, they heat up in an instant, they are con­ve­nient­ly locat­ed in terms of set­ting dish­es of dif­fer­ent diam­e­ters. The glass-ceram­ic coat­ing looks beau­ti­ful and is easy to care for and clean, it is washed quick­ly with­out the use of any aggres­sive deter­gents.”

Advantages

  • a well-deserved trust­ed brand;
  • glass-ceram­ic smooth sur­face, easy to clean;
  • quick heat­ing of burn­ers;
  • sim­ple and con­ve­nient touch con­trol;
  • resid­ual heat indi­ca­tor;
  • pro­tec­tion from chil­dren;
  • pro­tec­tive shut­down.

Flaws

  • the sys­tem of pro­tec­tive auto-shut­down of some users seems too sen­si­tive.

Rat­ing: 4.8

Electrolux EHF 96547 XK

Now let’s pay atten­tion to anoth­er famous brand of house­hold appli­ances — Elec­trolux, and con­sid­er not the cheap­est, but one of the most pop­u­lar hobs on Russ­ian trad­ing floors.

A notice­able increase in price com­pared to bud­get mod­els in this case is explained by quite sig­nif­i­cant and sig­nif­i­cant fac­tors. So, for exam­ple, in this mod­el we have such impor­tant and use­ful addi­tions as a three-cir­cuit burn­er and an oval heat­ing zone. This allows you to approach the prepa­ra­tion of dish­es much more flex­i­ble and make it much more con­ve­nient.

Man­age­ment in this pan­el is slid­er, which also adds con­ve­nience and pre­sentabil­i­ty. There is all the nec­es­sary safe­ty automa­tion — safe­ty shut­down, con­trol pan­el lock. There is also auto­mat­ic boil­ing and a timer with shut­down and sound sig­nal.

Most of all, in this mod­el, users like fast, con­fi­dent heat­ing and the pres­ence of three-cir­cuit and oval heat­ing zones. Also, many peo­ple like the “high-tech” slid­er con­trol. Some users are dis­sat­is­fied with the over­ly sen­si­tive auto-off sys­tem, which is sen­si­tive, for exam­ple, to water enter­ing the con­trol pan­el.

From the review of a Yandex.Market user with the sta­tus “Mas­ter of Life Lev­el 3”: “I have been using the sur­face for a year now. Very easy to man­age. It is washed very eas­i­ly, it is advis­able to wash every­thing imme­di­ate­ly after cook­ing, as soon as the stove has cooled down, and not put it off for lat­er. Heats up quick­ly. The timer func­tion is just a life­saver. I rec­om­mend”.

Advantages

  • Hi Light tech­nol­o­gy;
  • con­ve­nient slid­er con­trol;
  • there is a three-cir­cuit burn­er;
  • there is an oval heat­ing zone;
  • easy clean­ing of the glass-ceram­ic sur­face;
  • fast heat­ing;
  • shut­down timer;
  • auto­mat­ic boil­ing;
  • con­trol pan­el lock.

Flaws

  • exces­sive sen­si­tiv­i­ty of the pro­tec­tive auto-shut­down sys­tem.

Bosch PIF672FB1E

The Bosch PIF672FB1E glass-ceram­ic pan­el has all the nec­es­sary indi­ca­tors of func­tion­al­i­ty, sim­plic­i­ty, with­out sac­ri­fic­ing an attrac­tive appear­ance. The mod­el is made in a sophis­ti­cat­ed white col­or. The edges of the device are beveled and framed with met­al, which fur­ther com­ple­ment the image and enhance the strength of the struc­ture.

The pan­el is equipped with four burn­ers with instant­ly heat­ing ele­ments. The func­tion of auto­mat­ic recog­ni­tion of dish­es will ensure safe­ty when using. Con­ve­nient touch con­trol will allow you to set the required tem­per­a­ture and timer, and the indi­ca­tor lights will reflect the resid­ual heat para­me­ters. For more pre­cise set­tings, 17 heat­ing lev­els are pro­vid­ed, while pow­er con­sump­tion will be min­i­mal. The sur­face of this pan­el is com­plete­ly smooth, so it is easy to clean from any dirt.

Advantages

  • pro­tec­tion from chil­dren;
  • timer with auto­mat­ic shut­down;
  • dish recog­ni­tion func­tion;
  • fast heat­ing;
  • easy to clean;
  • has a styl­ish appear­ance;

MAUNFELD MVCE 59.4HL.1SM1DZT BK

Rat­ing: 4.9


MAUNFELD MVCE 59.4HL.1SM1DZT BK

Not as pop­u­lar as, for exam­ple, Asko or Bosch, the MAUNFELD MVCE 59.4HL.1SM1DZT BK elec­tric hob has won pos­i­tive reviews and the trust of domes­tic con­sumers. The hob is made in France, which guar­an­tees high Euro­pean qual­i­ty and reli­a­bil­i­ty. Ele­gant and black col­or will per­fect­ly fit into any kitchen inte­ri­or. In the mid­dle price seg­ment, an excel­lent com­bi­na­tion of price and qual­i­ty.

This mod­el is made of high-strength Euro­Kera glass-ceram­ic, equipped with 4 Hi Light burn­ers with addi­tion­al ele­ments for faster heat­ing. There is a dou­ble burn­er. Anoth­er burn­er has an oval-shaped heat­ing zone for the cor­re­spond­ing cook­ware. To select the opti­mal tem­per­a­ture, you must cor­rect­ly set one of the 9 heat­ing lev­els, which are equipped with light indi­ca­tion. Touch con­trol will sim­pli­fy the oper­a­tion of the pan­el.

Advantages

  • auto­mat­ic shut­down;
  • resid­ual heat indi­ca­tor;
  • timer;
  • pro­tec­tion against over­heat­ing and boil­ing;
  • child lock;
  • inde­pen­dent instal­la­tion;

The best induction hobs

Induc­tion pan­els are the most mod­ern. They only heat the bot­tom of the pan, so you can’t burn your­self with them. The only draw­back is that not all dish­es can be suit­able for cook­ing, but only with a thick mag­net­ic bot­tom (cast iron, enam­eled steel).

Weissgauff HI 640 BSC

Since 2013, the Weiss­gauff brand of house­hold appli­ances has been active­ly pro­mot­ed on the Russ­ian mar­ket, and at present there are a lot of appli­ances of this brand, and it is real­ly in demand. As it often hap­pens, this brand only dis­guis­es itself as Ger­man, but in fact the hold­er is the Russ­ian com­pa­ny Mega­lex. Nev­er­the­less, Weiss­gauff equip­ment con­fi­dent­ly occu­pies its niche in the bud­get seg­ment, ful­ly meet­ing con­sumer expec­ta­tions, who do not want to over­pay for a name and exces­sive func­tion­al­i­ty.

We will now con­sid­er one of the most suc­cess­ful exam­ples of Weiss­gauff house­hold appli­ances. This is an extreme­ly sim­ple and inex­pen­sive hob mod­el HI 640 BSC. But this sim­plic­i­ty con­tains every­thing you need and even some addi­tion­al use­ful fea­tures.

The sur­face of the pan­el is glass-ceram­ic, the con­trol pan­el is equipped with indi­vid­ual indi­ca­tors for each burn­er, and on a black back­ground of the sur­face, red num­bers and sym­bols look extra­or­di­nar­i­ly impres­sive.

The con­trol in this mod­el is touch-sen­si­tive, slid­er, which is also liked by many, and it is objec­tive­ly con­ve­nient, not to men­tion the pleas­ant feel­ing of inter­act­ing with a high-tech thing. There is a sound timer with shut­down. An impor­tant and remark­able point is that this mod­el has a con­tin­u­ous heat­ing induc­tion func­tion. Safe­ty switch-off and indi­ca­tion of resid­ual heat are also avail­able.

Users in their reviews on the largest trad­ing plat­forms dis­tin­guish this pan­el from oth­ers for all the most obvi­ous — the com­bi­na­tion of price and qual­i­ty, ease of man­age­ment, the absence of frills that only increase the price. There are indeed com­ments on the rather loud oper­a­tion of the cool­ing (fan), but these are more com­ments, not com­plaints.

From the review of a Yandex.Market user with the sta­tus “Mas­ter of Life Lev­el 8”: “Excel­lent pan­el. Con­ve­nient touch con­trol, heats up quick­ly. I real­ly liked the block­ing func­tion and the noti­fi­ca­tion indi­ca­tor. Afford­able price, good design, qual­i­ty assem­bly.

Advantages

  • sim­plic­i­ty and reli­a­bil­i­ty;
  • con­ve­nient slid­er con­trol;
  • sound timer with shut­down;
  • styl­ish lacon­ic design;
  • pro­tec­tive auto-shut­down;
  • con­trol pan­el lock;
  • resid­ual heat indi­ca­tion.

Flaws

  • some users note a noisy fan.

Electrolux IPE 6453 KF

Electrolux IPE 6453 KF

Once again, the famous brand Elec­trolux appears in our review, this time in the nom­i­na­tion of induc­tion hobs. And we will con­sid­er not the most expen­sive on the mar­ket, but not the cheap­est IPE 6453 KF pan­el from the pop­u­lar Intu­it line.

This is one of the most pop­u­lar and sought-after mod­els on Russ­ian trad­ing floors, and the secret is in the incred­i­bly suc­cess­ful imple­men­ta­tion of the func­tion­al­i­ty for a far from low, but quite rea­son­able price. This is one of the best-sell­ing mod­els of recent years in the mid­dle price range.

The sur­face of the stove, as expect­ed, is glass-ceram­ic, easy to clean. Touch con­trol, slid­er. There is all the nec­es­sary and stan­dard func­tion­al­i­ty such as block­ing the con­trol pan­el, pro­tec­tive auto-off, timer with off, etc.

Sep­a­rate­ly, it is worth point­ing out an impor­tant char­ac­ter­is­tic that not all induc­tion (and not only induc­tion) hobs have. This is the Bridge func­tion, which allows you to com­bine two adja­cent heat­ing zones into one large “long” one, and thus cook in dish­es with an oval cross sec­tion. By them­selves, the burn­ers auto­mat­i­cal­ly adjust to the size of the cook­ware.

Among oth­er things, this stove can work in con­junc­tion with a “smart” hood that sup­ports the Hob2Hood func­tion. This tech­nol­o­gy pro­vides that the pan­el com­mu­ni­cates with the hood via the infrared port and con­trols the inten­si­ty of its work, depend­ing on the mode in which the cook­ing is going on.

Users appre­ci­ate this hob most of all for its almost unique com­bi­na­tion of a very rea­son­able price and the pres­ence of func­tion­al­i­ty that makes it pos­si­ble to cook dish­es with almost no restric­tions and all sorts of tricks, as is often the case in the cheap­est induc­tion cook­ers. It pro­vides not only the most basic cook­ing meth­ods — boil, stew and fry, but also allows you to sim­mer, cook in oval-shaped dish­es, cook dish­es that require both ultra-high and extreme­ly low tem­per­a­tures.

From the review of a Yandex.Market user with the sta­tus “Mas­ter of life of lev­el 8”: “My wife and I are very sat­is­fied with the pur­chase. Heats up real­ly fast. At a max­i­mum of 2.5 liters of water, it boils in 3–4 min­utes. A con­ve­nient scale for adjust­ing the heat from 1 to 14 — you can put the soup to boil so that it gur­gles, but does not run away.

Advantages

  • wide and flex­i­ble cook­ing options;
  • Bridge func­tion for com­bin­ing heat­ing zones;
  • auto­mat­ic adjust­ment to the size of dish­es;
  • IR port for com­mu­ni­ca­tion with a “smart” hood;
  • child lock;
  • shut­down timer;
  • pause func­tion (remem­ber­ing the state of all burn­ers for a while).

Flaws

  • no sig­nif­i­cant defi­cien­cies were iden­ti­fied.

The Bosch PIF645FB1E induc­tion hob is a com­bi­na­tion of state-of-the-art engi­neer­ing, user com­fort and sophis­ti­cat­ed design. The black glass-ceram­ic sur­face of the pan­el is framed by a sil­ver edg­ing, which empha­sizes indi­vid­u­al­i­ty and pro­tects the edges from chip­ping.

The sur­face is equipped with 4 burn­ers with pan recog­ni­tion func­tions. There is one dual-cir­cuit burn­er for cook­ing in dish­es of var­i­ous shapes and sizes. Rapid heat­ing of the hob will speed up the cook­ing process. Touch con­trol will help you set the required pow­er (there are 17 of them), set a timer with auto-off and a sound indi­ca­tor. Safe use of the pan­el is car­ried out due to the func­tions of the child lock and safe­ty shut­down, as well as the auto-lock of the sur­face. Bosch PIF645FB1E is easy to clean.

Bosch PIE631FB1E

Bosch PIE631FB1E is an induc­tion hob with inde­pen­dent instal­la­tion type. The ele­gant black col­or of glass ceram­ics, cou­pled with cross-shaped burn­ers, will make the hob a great addi­tion to the kitchen inte­ri­or. A good mod­el in its price seg­ment. The rich func­tion­al­i­ty of the hob is com­bined with sim­ple and intu­itive touch con­trols. Four burn­ers heat up quick­ly, the Power­Boost option will increase the pow­er of the required zones, and the auto-selec­tion func­tion for the width of the heat­ing area will ensure cook­ing or heat­ing in dish­es of any size.

For the con­ve­nience of the own­er, the sur­face is equipped with 17 pow­er lev­els, so it will not be dif­fi­cult to set the required heat­ing tem­per­a­ture. An off timer or an audi­ble alert can be set for each indi­vid­ual hot­plate. The pan­el auto­mat­i­cal­ly rec­og­nizes the pres­ence of dish­es, and in its absence it imme­di­ate­ly turns off. It also fea­tures a pan­el lock and a child lock option.

Advantages

  • Quick­Start func­tion;
  • ReStart func­tion;
  • heats up quick­ly;
  • easy to clean;
  • does not burn.

Flaws

  • hum at high pow­er;
  • sen­si­tive to scratch­es.

The best gas hobs

Gas — a pan­el that works only by con­nect­ing to a gas main. It is the most eco­nom­i­cal and cheap­est option com­pared to elec­tric or induc­tion, but at the same time, such a sur­face needs to be exhaust­ed (car­bon diox­ide is released dur­ing com­bus­tion) and only a spe­cial­ist from the spe­cial­ized ser­vice can install it. Self-instal­la­tion is pro­hib­it­ed!

GEFEST SG CH 1210 K5

The Belaru­sian plant “Brestga­zoap­pa­rat” reg­u­lar­ly sur­pris­es the mass con­sumer with bright sam­ples of house­hold appli­ances, which com­bine decent func­tion­al­i­ty, good qual­i­ty and design at the lev­el of “pathos” West­ern brands. This also applies to gas hobs, and we will now look at one of the most suc­cess­ful and pop­u­lar.

This is an unusu­al­ly effec­tive hob in terms of appear­ance with a well-thought-out arrange­ment of burn­ers. The largest express burn­er is locat­ed at the front left and moved slight­ly for­ward, so that even the largest dish­es can be placed with­out any prob­lems. Next to it in front on the right is the small­est burn­er, so such a neigh­bor­hood does not cre­ate prob­lems while cook­ing any­thing at the same time.

A group of reg­u­la­tors and an elec­tric igni­tion but­ton are locat­ed on the right side at an angle to the main sur­face. Some users note that this arrange­ment seems strange at first, but in fact this is a wise engi­neer­ing deci­sion, thanks to which the reg­u­la­tors do not heat up at all. A big plus is the cast iron grates.

Since this is an ultra-bud­get mod­el, there are no spe­cial high-tech func­tions pro­vid­ed here, and there is not even gas con­trol. But at this point, users prac­ti­cal­ly do not com­plain, real­iz­ing that for such an amount it would be strange to expect some­thing more.

The record user feed­back based on the same record sales of this mod­el is eas­i­ly explained — almost a record low price with very good per­for­mance and almost pre­mi­um design. The only point is that quite a few users note the char­ac­ter­is­tic whis­tle emit­ted by the largest burn­er. For indi­vid­ual users, all burn­ers whis­tle in a sim­i­lar way. This is not for every­one, but it’s worth keep­ing in mind if you’re sen­si­tive to this sort of thing.

From the feed­back of a Yandex.Market user with the sta­tus “Mas­ter of Life Lev­el 2”: “Per­forms the assigned func­tions. There are no com­plaints about con­ve­nience either. Ini­tial­ly, the loca­tion of the knobs was ques­tion­able, but in fact it is use­ful, so the han­dles do not heat up from the fire.

Advantages

  • stain­less steel sur­face, easy to clean;
  • elec­tric igni­tion;
  • cast iron grills;
  • con­ve­nient loca­tion of the large burn­er;
  • spec­tac­u­lar design;
  • super afford­able price.

Flaws

  • a large burn­er for many users emits a char­ac­ter­is­tic whis­tle in cer­tain posi­tions of the reg­u­la­tor.

Beko HIZG 64120 B

Rat­ing: 4.8

Beko HIZG 64120 B

Anoth­er super-bud­get gas hob in our review, this time from the Turk­ish brand Beko, which has already appeared in our review. Recall that Beko house­hold appli­ances are “num­ber 1” in pop­u­lar­i­ty in Turkey itself, so this says a lot about this brand.

Since the mod­el is super-bud­get, it has only every­thing you need, and this com­bi­na­tion suits a huge num­ber of buy­ers. Four burn­ers with a well-thought-out arrange­ment. The express burn­er with an esti­mat­ed out­put of 2.9 kW is locat­ed at the front left.

And in gen­er­al, the loca­tion of the burn­ers in terms of size and pow­er is exact­ly the same as that of the GEFEST SG CH 1210 K5. The only sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence is in the loca­tion of the con­trols — they are in the same plane as the sur­face itself.

Unlike GEFEST, an improved and more con­ve­nient ver­sion of elec­tric igni­tion is imple­ment­ed here. It is auto­mat­ic, that is, built into the reg­u­la­tors them­selves. But in terms of grat­ing, Beko is already los­ing to GEFEST, since the grat­ings here are enam­eled steel, not cast iron.

On the oth­er hand, there are a lot of users who pre­fer this option. Cast iron grates are often very dif­fi­cult to wash and clean, which is why many pre­fer enam­elled ones.

Users in their reviews main­ly praise this mod­el for its sim­plic­i­ty and reli­a­bil­i­ty, com­bined with an afford­able price, as well as for ease of main­te­nance. Many note the con­ve­nience of the grilles, although it would seem that non-cast iron grills are one of the weak­ness­es of this pan­el. A notice­able num­ber of buy­ers also notice that the pan­el is very easy to install, there are no dif­fi­cul­ties with embed­ding and con­nect­ing.

From the review of a Yandex.Market user with the sta­tus “Mas­ter of Life Lev­el 3”: “Opti­mal price-qual­i­ty-sim­plic­i­ty ratio. Noth­ing super­flu­ous, assem­bled firm­ly, stood up like a native, every­thing you need for instal­la­tion is includ­ed. Great bud­get option. I rec­om­mend”.

Advantages

  • price-qual­i­ty-reli­a­bil­i­ty ratio;
  • auto­mat­ic elec­tric igni­tion;
  • there is an express burn­er;
  • ease of care;
  • sim­ple and fast instal­la­tion;
  • afford­able price;
  • styl­ish look.

Flaws

  • no pro­nounced short­com­ings and sys­tem­at­ic com­plaints were not­ed.

Weissgauff HGG 641 BGH

And again in the review of the best hobs, the Weiss­gauff trade­mark, owned by the Russ­ian com­pa­ny Mega­lex. This time we will look at a bright and pow­er­ful gas hob in every sense, which is con­fi­dent­ly break­ing sales records on Russ­ian trad­ing floors.

The most vis­i­ble and even tech­ni­cal­ly strik­ing ele­ment in this hob is the triple crown express burn­er, which cre­ates three flame cir­cuits. Its esti­mat­ed heat­ing pow­er is 3.4 kW, and this allows you to real­ly heat up a large con­tain­er with any­thing in the short­est pos­si­ble time. In addi­tion, such a flame sim­ply even looks very impres­sive, and the very fact of the pres­ence of a “triple crown” burn­er already sig­nif­i­cant­ly increas­es the “sta­tus” of the unit.

Among the obvi­ous advan­tages of this mod­el, it is worth empha­siz­ing the sur­face of thick tem­pered glass, which in anthracite-black col­or looks incred­i­bly impres­sive and is easy to main­tain.

Of the impor­tant func­tion­al ele­ments, it is worth high­light­ing the pres­ence of gas con­trol for each burn­er and auto­mat­ic elec­tric igni­tion in each reg­u­la­tor. The knobs them­selves are well thought out, care­ful­ly posi­tioned to ensure they don’t come into con­tact with close fire or over­heat.

Users in their reviews often leave almost enthu­si­as­tic com­ments regard­ing this mod­el, and most­ly praise, of course, the “triple crown” burn­er. Very often note the con­ve­nient loca­tion of the han­dles of the reg­u­la­tors. Only pos­i­tive opin­ions about the appear­ance of the pan­el.

From the review of a Yandex.Market user with the sta­tus “Mas­ter of Life Lev­el 2”: “Good pan­el, there was no plug in the sock­et in the kit, we con­nect­ed it our­selves. The dou­ble burn­er heats up quick­ly, and the oth­ers are bet­ter than my old one. Easy to clean, thick glass.

Advantages

  • tem­pered glass sur­face;
  • gas con­trol burn­ers;
  • auto­mat­ic elec­tric igni­tion;
  • cast iron grills;
  • express burn­er “triple crown”;
  • spec­tac­u­lar appear­ance.

Flaws

  • no pro­nounced flaws and sys­tem­at­ic com­plaints were not­ed.

Asko HG1666SB

The Swedes know how to com­bine high qual­i­ty and reli­a­bil­i­ty with prac­ti­cal­i­ty in use. The Asko HG1666SB gas pan­el is a prime exam­ple of this. The mod­el is made of stain­less steel. But future own­ers should not wor­ry that this mate­r­i­al will cause them a lot of prob­lems when leav­ing. The hob Asko HG1666SB is cov­ered with a spe­cial pro­tec­tive lay­er POLIANT, which will pre­vent fin­ger­prints and oth­er dirt can be eas­i­ly removed with a damp cloth.

Three class A+ hybrid burn­ers have dif­fer­ent diam­e­ters and pow­er, and the fourth Super Vario Wok is dou­ble-cir­cuit and equipped with dou­ble adjust­ment. The hob is equipped with 2 remov­able cast iron grates and a round wok stand. There are func­tions of gas con­trol and auto­mat­ic elec­tric igni­tion. And the hob itself can be con­nect­ed both to the main gas pipeline and to the cylin­der.

Advantages

  • high qual­i­ty mate­ri­als and assem­bly;
  • mul­ti­func­tion­al set of burn­ers;

The best 2 burner hobs

Small hobs are per­fect for small fam­i­lies or a coun­try house. They do not take up much space and har­mo­nious­ly fit into the design of a small kitchen.

Beko HDCE 32200 X

In the final selec­tion of the review of the best hobs in 2021, accord­ing to Exper­tol­ogy mag­a­zine, the famous Turk­ish brand Beko also appears, whose equip­ment is very pop­u­lar both in Turkey itself and in many oth­er coun­tries.

We will con­sid­er a clas­sic elec­tric stove for 2 burn­ers of the domi­no form fac­tor. By clas­si­cal, we mean a famil­iar and well-known design using “pan­cakes”. It does not look as impres­sive as the “fash­ion­able” glass-ceram­ic mod­els with smooth sur­faces, but it is very cheap, and judg­ing by the demand and the vol­ume of reviews on Russ­ian trad­ing floors, it is def­i­nite­ly worth atten­tion.

Per­haps the most impor­tant advan­tage of this mod­el is its extreme sim­plic­i­ty. This mod­el is often bought for giv­ing or to the vil­lage. And here, just by the way, the fact that the con­trol is mechan­i­cal is the usu­al rotary switch­es. Still, there are a lot of peo­ple who do not per­ceive touch con­trol too much, espe­cial­ly for old­er peo­ple.

The front burn­er at the stove is small­er, 145 mm, the rear burn­er is large, 180 mm. Rat­ed pow­er — 2.5 kW. Switch­ing modes — with­in six posi­tions. The sur­face is made of stain­less steel.

From the review of a Yandex.Market user with the sta­tus “Mas­ter of Life Lev­el 4”: “Prac­ti­cal and very com­pact mod­el from Beko. Fits per­fect­ly in my small kitchen. The qual­i­ty is not bad, the burn­ers light up, they work.

Advantages

  • clas­sic design (for those who pre­fer it);
  • ele­men­tary mechan­i­cal con­trol of rotary switch­es;
  • fast heat­ing;
  • stain­less steel sur­face;
  • ease of care.

Flaws

  • not every­one will like the “old fash­ioned” look.

Weissgauff HV 312 B

And one more copy from the assort­ment of bright prod­ucts of the Weiss­gauff trade­mark is a com­pact elec­tric stove of the domi­no form fac­tor with two burn­ers. Also one of the cham­pi­ons in sales in online stores and in terms of the mass pos­i­tive feed­back from real buy­ers.

This is a dual-cir­cuit stove with two Hi Light tech­nol­o­gy burn­ers. One is 140 mm in size, the oth­er (which is just dou­ble-cir­cuit) is 115/175 mm in size. The heat­ing ele­ments are com­plete­ly hid­den under the glass-ceram­ic sur­face. It is translu­cent and dur­ing oper­a­tion, red light from the hot heaters can be seen through the sur­face. It looks extra­or­di­nar­i­ly impres­sive against the black back­ground of the body and sur­face.

The con­trol in this mod­el is touch-sen­si­tive, the pan­el is locat­ed in front, equipped with all the nec­es­sary indi­ca­tion with red back­light, which is styl­is­ti­cal­ly in per­fect har­mo­ny with the light of the hot heat­ing ele­ment. The con­trol pan­el can be locked. When cook­ing, you can use the timer sep­a­rate­ly for each burn­er.

In addi­tion to all of the above, there are pro­tec­tive func­tions — pro­tec­tive shut­down and indi­ca­tion of resid­ual heat.

In gen­er­al, if we take the func­tion­al­i­ty, then this is a fair­ly stan­dard stove, of which there are many. But the Mega­lex com­pa­ny, which is the hold­er of the Weiss­gauff brand, man­ages to cre­ate house­hold appli­ances with an incred­i­bly suc­cess­ful com­bi­na­tion of afford­able price, high qual­i­ty and almost pre­mi­um appear­ance. The Weiss­gauff HV 312 B hob is just such a sam­ple, and a lot of users in the reviews are unan­i­mous in this opin­ion.

From the review of a Yandex.Market user with the sta­tus “Mas­ter of Life Lev­el 4”: “Min­i­mal­ist design, fits per­fect­ly into any inte­ri­or. Con­ve­nient touch con­trol, the nec­es­sary min­i­mum of func­tions. Heats up quick­ly. It is easy to care for the sur­face due to the fact that there are no pro­trud­ing ele­ments.”

Advantages

  • burn­ers Hi Light;
  • two con­tours;
  • glass-ceram­ic smooth sur­face;
  • ease of care;
  • con­ve­nient touch con­trol;
  • timer;
  • con­trol pan­el lock;
  • styl­ish min­i­mal­ist design.

Flaws

  • no obvi­ous defi­cien­cies were iden­ti­fied.
