WHY SHOULD YOU BUY A GAS STOVE, COOKTOP, OR GAS OVEN IN SYDNEY?
With so many options nowadays, it can be difficult to know what you want in your kitchen, especially if you aren’t a seasoned cook but aspire to be one someday.
So, to help you decide, here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of owning a gas stove, cooktop, or oven.
- Gas is the only type of cooktop that allows you to cook directly over a flame.
- A gas stove heats water more quickly than an electric stove.
- When compared to electric ranges, gas stoves use less energy.
- Use a metal mesh rack to cook directly over the flame, which is an excellent way to incorporate smoky flavours into your favourite recipes.
- It continues to function even when the power is turned off.
- The initial cost is higher than that of electric ranges. For example, if you are switching from electric to gas, you must install new gas piping. If you are replacing an old gas oven with a new gas oven, you must consider your existing gas supply.
- It can be difficult to maintain the same heat setting on gas cooktops.
- Gas ranges are much more difficult to clean.
- While gas ovens heat up faster than electric ovens, they cook unevenly.
HOW TO SET UP A GAS COOKTOP IN SYDNEY?
Before you start cooking, you’ll need a licenced gasfitter to install your gas cooktop, stove, or gas oven. Every gas oven installation must meet a number of statutory requirements, follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and be completed legally by a licenced gasfitter in Sydney.
Not only that, but improper gas stove installation may void your manufacturer’s warranty and insurance, putting your family at risk of gas leaks, fires, and worse.
Quintessential Plumbing Sydney can help you get your gas installations from your gas stove, cooktop, oven, and more done right the first time, from taking your new appliance out of the box to cranking on the gas for the first time. We also provide repairs and services, as well as first-rate service and competitive pricing on any gas-related issue at your home, such as your gas hot water system in Sydney.
4 TYPES OF COOKTOPS FOR YOUR SYDNEY KITCHEN
Gas cooktops are prefered by serious home chefs because they provide high temperatures and easy control. These units use an open flame to heat up quickly. While gas cooktop designs vary, many feature a power burner for rapid heat up and a simmer burner for more delicate, controlled heat. The best premium gas cooktops also have commercial-grade components, allowing you to cook restaurant-quality meals at home.
Consider a gas cooktop if you want more heat and cooking power.
These units use electricity to heat the burners and do not require a gas connection. So electric cooktops are easier to instal than gas cooktops. Modern electric cooktops have smoothtops instead of coil burners. Regardless of the style, the electric settings ensure that the burners provide precise temperatures every time.
Many homeowners prefer an electric cooktop, despite the fact that they are less responsive than gas models. Some homeowners dislike having to wait for their electric cooktop to heat up or cool down.
Induction cooktops use electromagnetic energy to cook food. A magnet beneath the appliance’s flat ceramic surface reacts with steel, iron, or magnetic stainless steel cookware. The reaction produces a vibration that produces heat. An induction cooktop has many advantages due to its unique design. In addition to fast heating, these models have superior temperature control. Even when the appliance is turned on, they only produce heat when compatible cookware touches the surface.
You might want to go with an induction cooktop if you want more cooking power, better heat control, and added safety.
Rangetops are similar to cooktops, but they slide into your countertop from the back to the front. Unlike cooktops, rangetops have control knobs on the front of the appliance, on the edge of the counter. This top design is found on most cooking ranges.
There are both gas and electric rangetops available. Rangetops, like induction cooktops, are premium appliances that can be costly.
Cooktops are typically “drop-in” units that fit into a countertop cutout. Consider a rangetop as an alternative.
REQUIREMENTS FOR COOKTOP AND OVEN INSTALLATION IN SYDNEY
In addition to meeting various statutory, manufacturer, and legal requirements, you’ll need a compliance certificate to go with your new gas cooktop installation. For every gas cooktop installation, Australian standards, including minimum clearances and ventilation rules, must be strictly followed.
Installing a gas cooktop is simple with Quintessential Plumbing Sydney because we’ll make sure it’s compliant, functional, and safe before we leave you to cook!

Why should I choose Quintessential Plumbing Sydney for my gas cooktop installation?
We are Licensed Gas Fitters. It is strongly advised that you do not attempt to do gas work yourself or hire a tradesperson who does not have specialised gas training and a gas fitter licence, as the consequences of mistakes can be very serious. In fact, in Australia, anyone doing work with LPG or natural gas must have a valid licence or be an apprentice/trainee with a valid licence and work under the supervision of a licenced gas fitter. If gas work is performed by an unlicensed person, your insurance may void the manufacturer’s warranty on any appliances.

Gas appliances are less expensive to operate than electric appliances – which, if you cook a lot, means less energy consumption and lower utility bills in your Sydney homes.
