Gas Stove Buying Guide
When you are shopping for a new gas stove, you have to look at multiple things. Not just if the gas stove is good or not but about the gas stove itself, where you would have to place it in the kitchen and more important your cooking style – multitasker or one-two things at a time.
About gas stoves itself – we have given few important aspects below on what to look for. And also covered more than 15+ different types of gas stoves in our review guide above.
On the placement in the kitchen – check out the width of the counter. This is where most of the people go wrong and end up with stove inconveniently jutting outside of the counter. Not only is it inconvenient but also dangerous if the gas stove is not flat on level counter.
Compact sizes also occupy less space in smaller kitchens. In the reviews we have covered the dimensions of each of the gas stoves. On the cooking style – multitasker or one/two things at a time. This will help you decide on the number of burners. Having optimal number of burners will allow you to balance between your need vs more free space on the kitchen counter.
So now let us walk you through the different points to consider with the gas stove itself before picking the right gas stove.
Gas Stove Design and Material
Earlier the common gas stoves were mostly aluminum or stainless steel with aluminum or brass burners. These were plain to serve the purpose designs.
Now the gas stoves come with powder coated sheet metal frame and elegant looks toughened glass top 6mm or more in thickness. The burners generally high efficiency brass burners or on occasion aluminum burners. Don’t go for brass coated burners as they rust soon.
The newer design come with more convenience and value features like, spill proof design with steel drip trays. Rest of the design is both ergonomic looks and safety proofed. Like the knobs or the placement of gas inlet or built-in auto ignition features.
In summary, the gas stoves come with toughened glass top with stylish finish and elegant designs to match the modular open kitchens.
Number of burners In India, you get the gas stoves from 1, 2, 3 or 4 burners. 1-burner gas stoves are mostly for single person or at tea stalls/kiosks.
For Indian families 2 to 4 burners are needed. This where your cooking style – multitasker or one/two things at a time comes in.
3 or 4 burners take up more space both length and width. So, check against the space where you want to place the gas stove. Then check out our selections above for different sizes available to figure what would work.
2 burner stoves are the narrower than the other two. But still check out against your kitchen counter width, especially if the kitchen counters are narrow. In small kitchens, you may want to consider smaller gas stove to get more open space.
Note that more burners mean more gas consumption. Wastage if you are not efficient in multitasking well. It definitely saves time, if it suits your style to have more burners or need to cook a lot of dishes.
Type of Ignition
Gas stoves come with either manual ignition or auto-ignition mode. Both ignitions work fine.
With manual ignition you need use the match stick or lighter. For safety reasons would recommend using the gas lighter – the electric type than the liquid fuel type.
With auto ignition you may get two type with a built-in electric/battery lighter in for each burner in the knob or separate battery-operated built-in lighter. Go for separate one for each burner built into the knob operation.
With proper lighter, both modes manual and auto are safe for operating the stove. It would be just convenience of something built-in or separate one. Note if the built-in ignitor fails then you may have to fall back for separate lighter.
Usually auto ignition feature gas stove is charged a slight premium. So if the specific model you want comes with auto ignition it is fine. Otherwise, you can choose to pay extra just for the feature.
Anti-skid feet and Space Underneath the Stove
Robust legs with anti-skid proof feet are very important. Make sure that gas stove frame is also well built and weighs over 4 or 5kgs. Light weight stoves can topple over easily.
Check the clearance underneath the stove or the height of the stove. Enough clearance would allow you to clean the kitchen counter underneath easily. Otherwise, you would have to lift it up to clean.
Tri Pin Burner and Spacing between burners For most Indian cooking the tri pins on the burner will be useful. The tri pins can hold the small pan used for preparing tadka or for reheating small quantities of tea/coffee.
Spacing between the burners is generally okay to hold two wide pans simultaneously on both the burners.
You will face slight problem on few compact models in 3-burners. One way is to make sure that two large or medium burners are not next to each other. Generally, the smaller burner is in the back centre, with medium or large burners on the left and right side.
In the case of 4 burners, most of the stoves are more compact length wise, so adjacent burners are quite compared to 2 or 3 burner gas stoves. Make sure the two large or medium burners are placed diagonally. That each of them will have smaller burner next to it.
Gas Inlet and Connection
Most modern kitchen have the facility for gas pipe at the back of the kitchen counter. Quite few 2 burners gas stoves have the inlet valve at front right or left side. This would result in convenience of running the pipe from back to front. Can get in the way as obstruction while cooking. Alternately ignore the inlet at the back of the counter and route the gas tube from the front. It will not make clean picture with the pipe visible.
3 and 4 burner gas stoves generally have the gas inlet value at the back. Other point to note is to check if the gas inlet valve is 360 degree rotatable. Otherwise, to fix the gas pipe may be difficult and the also may become visible.
First step is to make sure that the burner good brass quality and second make sure the fire holes cover all angles – not just on the outer edge of the burner. Vertical flame from underneath pot/pan is more efficient in heating in one fourth to half the time.
Also make sure the flame is blue for the best efficient and fast heating or cooking. Also, the flame is robust and even on the burner, with none of the holes on the burner blocked or missing.

Is the glass top gas stove safe and durable?
Yes, most of the gas stoves come with glass top which is toughened to be heat resistant and shatter proof. However, read the care precautions which come with the gas stove.

So, go ahead you can get the best gas stove in India with good looks and good price.
Which burner is better, brass or aluminium alloy?
Brass burners with high thermal efficiency are good and last long, compared to aluminum alloy burners. Also check the flame outlets or holes at least one or two circular sets should give vertical flame for efficient heating. Tri pin burners are useful for small pan or katori type to balance properly on the stove. This will get you efficient best gas stove.
Should I get the gas stove with gas inlet on the side or the back ?
It depends on where the gas tube comes in to the counter. Most newer kitchen counters have gas inlet placed at the back of the counter. Also, the 360-degree swiveling inlet valve will be useful to connect properly in a clean arrangement, instead of gas tube sticking up at an odd angle.
Is the auto ignition better than manual ignition?
Both are equally efficient. Autoignition gives the convenience of doing away with a separate gas lighter or searching for misplaced gas lighter. Quite often the gas stove outlasts the auto ignitors and need a separate gas lighter at that time.
Why are most of the gas stoves black ? /
Do I get in other gas stoves in other colours?
