Professional Hobs FAQs
In a commercial kitchen setting, there are three main hob types that you may wish to consider: gas, electric and induction.
Commercial gas hobs run on gas and typically feature 4+ burners. Delivering instant heat and superb temperature control, gas hobs are ideal for commercial kitchens that need a reliable and sturdy cooktop solution.
Electric hobs are a good alternative to gas-powered units for some commercial kitchens, offering advantages like improved portability and ease of cleaning.
Professional induction hobs leverage magnetic energy transfer technology to deliver instant heat and efficient operation. The only downside to induction units is that you’ll need specific induction-safe cookware.
Yes, certainly. Although commercial induction hobs work differently from gas and electric-powered models, ventilation is still required to remove smoke, steam and odour from the air during cooking to maintain a safe and usable kitchen environment.
Induction hobs are more efficient than their electric-powered counterparts, so they are cheaper to run in most professional kitchen settings. You should, however, consider the price difference between commercial gas, electric, and induction cooktops before making a decision on which is best suited to your business.
