    Reduced depth gas hob help please! 6th Dec 17 at 5:51 PM
    Evening,

    I'm wondering if anyone knows of a reduced depth built in gas hob that would be suitable for a 105cm x 48cm space? The space is inside a chimney breast so the back and either side will be tiled with nothing combustable close.

    I've searched and searched and I'm close to conceding that such a thing doesn't exist due to the reduced depth. I've found 1 or 2 that are just to wide which is a shame.

    I could really do with using this space if possible to free up worktop space elsewhere in my small kitchen.

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Thanks

    I should have mentioned I'm looking for a 4 burner but fire any 3 burner options over.

    Cheers

    The plumbers/gas engineer moneysavers will tell you that gas hobs are all pretty much similar, whatever the brand and CDA are one of the makes which could appear under a dozen different 'known' brands.

    THIS ONE

    Aw, we had an Ikea one for six years that was three burner. I came down from five and am a big cook. An investement in a big pot with a stack of steamers above was a brilliant choice, not only because it reduces that gas usage -it improves flavour and that many rings genuinely aren’t needed at one time.

    One ring started playing up and we were replacing the worktop with a lovely one so I made the decision to replace it woth something ‘normal’ simply because itnwould die eventually and the space would be difficult to refill in the long term (we’ll be letting the house out from next year).

    Maybe not that helpful to you, but when we move, this is what we’re having. I didn’t pay as much. It does fit your space. https://markselectrical.co.uk/KM6381_Miele-Induction-Hob.html

    This one looks like a positive bargain now and I love Fisher & Paykel.

    I feed a husband and two teenagers. It can easily be done on a three burner.

    Iíve been drinking champagne. Apologies for many posts

    You know itís not unusual to pull the unit out from the others when itís inside a chimney breast.

    It doesnít look unusual to have a big hob unit set forward by 10 or 15cms. That will accommodate a more traditional hob for you and cost less with a couple of bits of kickboard as side panels.

    Should come up as the past few examples I put on my pinterest board: https://pin.it/4sw6hiicq42v3r
