05.Combination cooktops

If you can’t decide between gas and electricity, you can have the best of both worlds with a dual-fuel cooktop, such as a gas cooktop with one electric element. Alternatively, you can pair cooktops by combining a twin gas cooktop with a twin ceramic cooktop, for example.

You can also get barbecues, grill plates, deep fryers and even weighing scales integrated into the cooktop. If you do a lot of these types of cooking, they could be worth considering.

Combination cooktopThe ultimate in mix and match: this combination has a gas wok burner, ceramic-surface 'grill', induction element and electric deep fryer. It'll knock you back close to $5700.
