Hi Guys,

I am looking to install a gas hob in the kitchen with all the power cuts and load shedding.

Just a normal 600mm hob. Nothing fancy, I am keeping the electric oven in place.

Any ideas on brands and features?

TIA

Looking at this one:
That's a great price, Bosch is a strong brand. There is very little that can go wrong with a hob, not so much an oven / cooker hood, I have a gas powered Fuchs, and the hob is OK, but I regret the hood every single day, and the electric oven is also iffy.

A feature I can recommend is auto gas shut off. If the gas is going and the flame dies for whatever reason, or if your kid turns one of the plates on, then it closes automatically if no flame is detected.

Get it installed by a reputable installer, and request a Cert. You will need it for insurance. If you ever sell - it is piece of mind for the next owner.
