The 10 best three burner hobs

*Review of the best according to the editorial board. About the selection criteria. This material is subjective, not an advertisement and is not a sales pitch. Please consult with an expert before purchasing.

The heroes of our review are three-burner built-in hobs. This type of technology is just beginning to conquer the domestic market, but every year there are more and more stoves with three burners. The reason of popularity – compact size. Statistically we almost never use all 4 burners at the same time, plus three-burner hobs take up less space. It is suitable for small kitchens or studio apartments.

For our review we have chosen 10 of the best models of hobs. All nominees were divided into three categories according to the principle of operation – induction hobs, electric and gas. In this review we did not include equipment of the premium segment, as it does not fit in several criteria for selection, namely the ratio between cost and quality.

When selecting models we considered build quality, functionality, price, design and technical parameters. We also paid special attention to the practical side, namely how the hobs showed themselves in real people’s use.

For information, we used data from review sites, forums, official websites of manufacturers, popular marketplaces and other public resources.
