Hob & Hood - Which Brand Should I Buy?

Recommended Posts

Hi elfettucine,

I suppose it depends on how often, how much or what type of food you normally cook.

When I cook a complete meal, I often find myself needing 3 burners : soup, stir-frying and maybe one for steaming (fish/veg etc.). Sometimes when I only need a bit of rice or porridge, I cook it in a pot on the 4th burner.

I reckon 3 burners will be useful if your family is going to expand soon. Else should be able to get by with 2 especially if you know your cooking habits well.

:)

Hey all,

I bought a Fujioh hob and hood yesterday and am quite pleased with the purchase.

only thing is that I decided to go with the two burner hob instead of the three, because it's smaller and who uses three hobs anyway?

Now I'm thinking that there might be occasions where i'll need three burners. I've only used three ones in my life when I was boiling something while cooking pasta and making the sauce at the same time, but other than that i've always used only two.

Any input?

We're getting a new worktop anyway, so if i get the bigger three burner at 880mm widthe the workers can do the changes.

But the two burner is smaller and will give slightly more counterspace to work with in a smallish kitchen.

I'll take Rinnai anytime. Quality is excellent! Own a unit for 2 1/2 years without any problem. Easy to clean and looks nice compared to my previous Zerowatt, which broke down couple of times within a span of ~7 years.

Side track alittle, I have been using a Rinnai (gas) instant water heater for the past 11 years without a single problem and is still going strong, just need to replace the battery for the ignitor every 8mths or so.

Btw, someone mentioned in an earlier post that it is from Indonesia, correct me if I am wrong, it is a Japanese brand. Japan made versions of some hobs are normally more pricey, however, quality is by far the best.

Just bought TECNO hood and hob @ 588 from Hoe Kee. Was looking for white painted combo, really limited selections these days. All stainless steel and glass, the former easily get scratched and latter looks cheap to me. Went to 2 stores at IMM, and both TECNO and Turbo have white painted combo, but only one model from each. TECNO looks nicer, and made in Italy, Turbo made in Taiwan. Pricewise, 588 vs. 599. So, of course TECNO won.

Yes, I bought it from the Electrolux Sales. Din get the oven coz by the time I was there, I only saw $2xxx units left.

How much you paid for your oven? (I should have make more effort to go on Sat instead of Sun. Sighh..)

I too have never use Electrolux things before, but have hear good reviews from friends.

Let's both pray hard that they are good =)

I bought my hood, oven and microwave from the Sale too. But I decided on the Ariston Avant Garde Hob as I like the gas and ceramic hob combination.

I agree with you on servoce from CASA SUCKS big time.

Tulips,

EF hobs, flame as same like others, if you want with big fire flame, u can try RINNAI (Triple fire rings) or Fujioh (inner Flame on the right side)........

I seldom recommend EF brand HOB & HOOD as their service is SUCK !!!!! EF is the distributor from CASA while they also carry other brands like ARISTON & ELBA...their service part fall me and disappointed me.....inefficient in problem solving...need to argue with them ...................just a piece of advice........
