Gas Cooktop

A gas cooktop is a traditional cooktop or stovetop with natural gas or propane burners.

When purchasing a gas cooktop, you'll need to consider the size of cooktop for your kitchen space. Gas cooktops are available in 20", 24", 30" and 36" wide. The most common size gas cooktop is 30" in width. High-end gas ranges are available in 48" and 60" wide. Gas and electric dual fuel options are also available.

Gas cooktops cook quickly and effectively, with a short startup time. They can have a lower or higher carbon footprint than an electric cooktop, depending on how low-carbon your electricity supply is. The downside to gas cooktops is that they release the products of combustion into your home.
