Smoothly operating knobs: Knobs should have firm grip and aesthetically designed.
Sturdy pan supports: Pan supports play an important role and should be strong and enameled.
Number of Burners: One need to also decide on the number of burners required as the Hobs are available in the configuration of 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 burners and various sizes from 30 / 60 / 70 / 77 / 90 CM so based on the space available and the requirement of the burners one can finalise the same.
Hob Tops: Glen also makes hobs which have the flexibility of being used as a free standing hob so no need to cut the counter tops.
