[BUDGET PRODUCT] This is Ramblewood Gas Cooktop. It weighs 13 pounds and measures 20 x 12 x 3 inches.

It’s a small gas cooktop. If you have a family of 4-6, I think it should be too small for you. Otherwise, you have to wait for a long time in every meal. I think 2 burners are best for the couple use.

It features an electric ignition that uses 1.5V DC battery and it’s included for your convenience. But, I suggest you buy one more in case. If you have no spare battery when it’s running out, don’t’ worry, you can use the lighter to light the flame instead. It’s troublesome but at least you can cook.

The original setting is to use natural gas. If your home is not using natural gas, don’t worry, the LPG/Propane conversion burner orifice/valve is included for you so you don’t need to buy to additionally.

You can even use it outdoor. At that time, you can use the proper nozzle for the LPG.

I think the most special feature is the enclosed chassis that is designed to prevent airflow from affecting combustion stability during cooking.

The surface is not flat so it can catch the overflow of liquid so it won’t make your table messy. Try to imagine, if the surface is flat, the liquid will flow to the table and it will be difficult to clean.

How To Choose The Best Rated Gas Cooktops

Tempered Glass Surface/Stainless Steel Surface

Actually, the only difference is the appearance, both of them are durable and beautiflu. You can choose it according to your preference.

Auto Shut Off

When no flame is detected during cooking, the cooking will shut off the gas automatically to save your home and family.

If the model you want to buy doesn’t have this feature, don’t buy and choose other models.

Grates

It’s either large grate or individual grates. If it comes with individual grates, 5 burners will have 5 grates. If it’s a large grate, 2 burners will share one grate.

The only concern I can think of is large grates may be too large so you can not put in the dishwasher. If you want to use a dishwasher every time, I think individual grates will be better.

Electronic Ignition

Normally, it will have electronic ignition but it needs to connect to the electricity. Otherwise, you have to use lighter or other flames instead.

Built in Style/Table Top Style

In some models, it can be used as both types. If you want to use it as a tabletop style, remember to read the product detail carefully.

Conversion Kit

Normally, most of the model can use LPG or NG but not all the model comes with the nozzles for you. If it’s not, you have to buy it yourself. If you want to save money, you can buy the model that includes the nozzle for you.

Conclusion

In the end, I think all of you already know how to choose the best one for your family. Actually, I think you have discovered that most of the models are very similar. It’s either a stainless steel surface or a tempered glass surface. It’s either 4 burners or 5 burners.

If you are still using the gas stovetop but want to use the electric cooktop at the same time, I think the post below will be helpful for you.

  1. I really wish I was able to get gas installed at my home. It would be too expensive in this area. I don’t believe other people have it locally. We are planning on moving in the next couple of years and I really hope to get somewhere with gas. I will keep this post in mind in case we need to install it ourselves. Thank you.
