Get instant heat control with a gas cooktop. We lab test and review the latest models from brands like Bosch, Miele and Fisher & Paykel and cover a range of rectangular and square-shaped gas cooktops in enamel, stainless steel and glass.

We give every gas cooktop a thorough workout to show you:

  • which are best at low and high temperature cooking
  • those that perform well for turn-down responsiveness
  • which are the easiest to use and clean
  • good and bad points for each model
  • cut-out dimensions to help you figure out which cooktop will fit the space you have.

Shopping links on the CHOICE website
CHOICE is an independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our non-profit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.
