Cookers...ceramic vs solid hotplate

Found 18th Jan 2009
Just wondering which you prefer?

I'm replacing mine which is a solid hotplate because the oven is poo! Takes like a whole day to cook a whole chicken.

Not quite sure whether to get a ceramic this time. I assume that they're easier to clean? Any other advantages / disadvantages?

Neither....cook with gas so that you can regulate the heat instantaneously

i have got ceramic hob its great much easier to clean

Solid hotplates take forever to change in temperature and are really a budget option, ceramic solves this problem and narrows the gap in that sense between electric and gas.

We did have ceramic, which is really easy to clean but have now gone to gas as it's easier to cook with when you turn it down the job is done, it's turned down straight away otherwise suffs just still boiling over unless you take it off.

Gas all the way.

gas - anything else seems so inflexible and with my very limited cookery skills i just end up burning stuff!

Gas first, then ceramic and never solid hot plate!!!!

Thanks for all your replies. Repped you all :thumbsup:

I've always been a bit wary of gas cookers because I'm scared of blowing the house up. You know like how you see on tv programmes when someone's left the gas on, someone then flicks the light switch and boom. Sounds silly I know lol.

Can this actually happen? :?

has to be gas

You can get gas cookers that turn off the gas if unlit after a certain time :thumbsup:

Oh that's not too bad then. Thanks


Does anyone know if a gas cooker connects to the same bit that an electric cooker connects to?

erm, you arent really asking if a GAS cooker connected in the same way as an ELECTRIC cooker are you? if so, i think the lack of response if because the clue is kind of in the name ;-)

Lol...erm :oops:

I was just kinda confused as to how a gas cooker is connected. Not sure if I've got somewhere that it can be connected to.

I'll just shut up now before I make myself look even more of a muppet...lol.

It's connected by MAGIC! :w00t:

well hey, no-one likes to be embarassed, dont be, after all, when you know something its obvious, if you dont, it aint ;-)

do you have gas in your property (e.g. gas central heating)? if not, you would need to get a gas feed from the mains - and that will be relatively expensive and disruptive (building work). if you already have gas, you *might* already have a feed in to your kitchen, of course, you may not, in which case the corgi (gas certified) installer would need to run a pipe from your existing gas pipes kitches (back of the cooker).

hope that makes sense, shout if not.

Thanks dan.

I knew that it didn't connect to the mains or anything :oops:

But yeah that makes sense.

I've got gas central heating, I know that much...

I think I'll just stick to electric to save the hassle (and embarrassment) lol
