11 Best Gas Stoves In Malaysia 2020: Portable/ Built In (2 Or 3 Burners)

Invest in the best gas stove in Malaysia 2020! After all, this is one of the most vital appliances for your house!

And if you use your gas stove almost daily and for many years, you’ll get your money’s worth in no time! There are many types and sizes to fit every budget and household!

But you can use this guide to help you choose one from the best gas stove brands in Malaysia!

Electric Vs Gas Stoves

Serious chefs will take gas stoves over induction cookers and electric stoves any day! Even if the electric cooking stoves are more energy efficient.

The reason is the direct flame you get with a gas stove! 

And it doesn’t matter what non-stick pan you use! Just keep the flame on low or medium!

Types Of Gas Stove

1. Manual Ignition Or Auto Ignition

For a gas stove with manual ignition:

You’ll need a starter, matches or a lighter to light the burner. After first releasing the gas.

While an auto ignition gas stove (or gas hob) relies on an electric spark from a battery to get the fire going!

Either stove type may come with 2 or more burners.

2. Built-In

Built in gas stoves in Malaysia will look as if they are part of your kitchen.

Provided you measure the allocated spot carefully before selecting your stove!

3. Portable

Portable stoves are ideal for students or rental spaces. As there is usually just a single burner. Or 2!

4. Freestanding Cooker With Oven

Like the built-in kitchen stoves, you can integrate freestanding cookers into your kitchen design. Or leave them on their own.

How To Choose The Right Hob

1. Size

Replacing your old kitchen hob? Don’t just assume the new one is the same size! Always check the height, width and depth!

Especially for built-in gas stoves, because the front profile may stick out a bit from the rest of the stove!

And if this is the first stove you’re getting, make sure you have a designated space for it in the kitchen. On average, most stoves have a width between 30 to 36 inches.

2. Flame Settings

Unlikely in single or dual configurations but there are gas cookers that have burners with different flame settings!

And that comes in handy if you want to fry on one burner, and do a light simmer on another burner!

3. How Many Burners

Choose a stove with at least 3 burners if you have a medium-sized household!

Having an extra burner is also great for warming up dishes while you cook the rest!

4. Material

Stainless steel lasts (does not rust) and is easy to clean.

There are stove tops with tempered glass too. And those may crack if you do a lot of heavy cooking!

5. Other Desirable Features:

  • Long warranty
  • Automatic on/off (i.e. Flame failure device)
  • Auto-reignite
