Other points in favor are a precise regulation of the flame and heat, and the possibility of using any type of cookware. On the other hand, the disadvantages include low energy efficiency, due to greater heat dispersion. In the gas hob, heating takes place via an open flame which from the burner hits the pot, but at the same time also the surrounding environment.
Those who opt for a plan of this kind need a gas connection, an operation, which we remember, is only carried out by a specialized technician. For safety, gas hobs must be equipped with a safety valve, which blocks the gas supply as soon as the burner flame goes out. In fact, it can happen that a liquid present in the pot overflows going to hit the flame, extinguishing it; through this safety device the gas stops flowing out.
Gas hobs are distinguished not only by the number of burners, but also by the type: auxiliary, rapid, triple crown, wok. Each designed to be used with pots and pans of different sizes and shapes. The surface where the burners rest is often in stainless steel, but there are also colored models such as black, gray, oatmeal or cream. The gas on glass hobs are sought after, where the burners are positioned on a surface in tempered glass or glass ceramic, a resistant and scratch-resistant material. The whole gives an elegant touch, suitable for kitchens with a sophisticated and modern taste. Last but not least, these tops are also very easy to clean.
