Cooking on gas

Advantages: Easy to use, excellent price
Disadvantages: None

When we first moved into the house we live in now, one of the first things we wanted to change was the kitchen as it was the original one from when the house was built back in 1990. When it came to the choice of cookers, my hubby and I couldn’t agree as I ...

Baumatic BF16.1SS

Advantages: Speed, looks, facilities, price
Disadvantages: Keeping it clean

We've had this hob for about 18 months now and it is superb. Very fast warmup and response time. Works best with heavy pans which hold the heat. In common with all hobs of this type the halogen system has only 2 settings: on and off, so half power set ...

BIG hob looks for the smaller kitchen.

Advantages: Great price, 70cm hob fits in 60cm cutout!, 5 burners
Disadvantages: Big pans touch, difficult to set it low enough for gentle simmer

...Bought the hob to go with a Baumatic B187 oven (reviewed elsewhere), as it looked good, and gave the smallish kitchen a bit more glitz. As mentioned in the heading, this 70cm hob fits in a 60 cm cut-out which was very handy as two drawer units were s ...
