What is an electric stove?
The electric cooker is a so-called large electric appliance for the kitchen. Here, the electric stove is used to prepare meals, that is, to heat various foods.
The term stove is the combination of two components called: the oven and the overlying hotplates.
The oven is used to bake sweet or savory foods or to gratinate with a crust.
On the hobs there is space for pots and pans in different sizes. Here is cooked and fried, stewed and braised. With the electric cooker, the required energy supply is provided by electricity. The first electric stove was presented in the 19th century, however, the large appliances were used only in the middle of the 20th century in more and more private households.
Guidebook: Questions to deal with before buying an electric cooker
What is the difference between an electric and a gas stove?
As the name implies, the electric stove is powered by electricity and the gas stove by gas. Logical. But what does one person do better than the other?
How the electric stove or the three types of electric stove work, we have already discussed above. That’s why we start with the gas stove. Pots and pans are heated at the gas stove with a direct flame. This has the advantage that the heat is absorbed quickly and you can achieve very high temperatures in a very short time.
But the gas stove has its disadvantages. The direct flame not only creates a high temperature in the pot, but also in the entire room. In the summer it can be quite uncomfortable. There is also a certain security risk, since you just have an open flame and should keep some distance with certain items (handkerchiefs, etc.).
Also, cleaning a gas stove is a challenge. You can not, as in a conventional electric stove, simply wipe it over with the cloth. It definitely takes a little more time. In terms of price, gas stoves are approximately at the same level as the ceran stoves. Depending on the model, however, the costs vary greatly. Beginner models are already available from 200 €, if you want something better quality, then you should look around 400 €.
With the running costs, the gas stove is clearly ahead because gas is cheaper than electricity. The food is at the gas stove, in contrast to the stove, faster even. The induction cooker can keep up here again. Except for the induction cooker, each cooker has its advantages and disadvantages. In the end it will not be easy for you to make that decision.
Let’s come to the conclusion: The electric stove needs only a power connection – the gas stove a special gas connection. If this is not available and must first be installed, then the purchase of a gas stove is not worthwhile in most cases. Otherwise, the purchase of the gas stove is a serious alternative. Provided that you are not afraid of the open flame and like to be a bit warmer in the kitchen.
What is the difference between a built-in and a cooker?
Stoves are free-standing stoves that are not installed in the kitchen unit. Built-in stoves are, as the name suggests, built into the kitchen. In terms of function, there are no differences – both fulfill their tasks. The difference lies only in connection or installation. Stand devices are much easier to set up and connect and are therefore preferred by many.
However, built-in stoves look more elegant if they are installed directly in the kitchen unit. The costs are higher and they are more complicated to connect. So if you decide for a nice and modern kitchen, you will not get around a built-in stove. Students and singles usually opt for a classic standalone unit.
How much electricity does an electric cooker consume?
How much power a stove consumes varies from model to model. Stoves with efficiency classes A +++ and A ++ are particularly economical and should be preferred. If one compares the consumption with a gas stove and assumes an annual consumption of 4,000 kilowatts, then the price of the kilowatt hour is 27.71 cents. With the gas stove and an annual consumption of 20,000 kilowatts (including gas heating), the kilowatt hour costs just 6.22 cents.
In the long run, the gas stove has one of its advantages. However, one should not orient oneself too much at these numbers, but simply ask for the desired model and carry out own calculations.
How do you connect it or can I connect it myself?
Can you connect it yourself? Yes. How to connect it? This is a bit more complicated to answer and would go beyond the scope of this guide.
So here is just a short guide:
- Switch off the fuse responsible for the stove. (Mostly the first three fuses in the fuse box)
- Attach the fuse so that no other person can switch on the fuse.
- Detect no voltage
- Grounding and shorting
- Connect the stove
How long does an electric stove last?
This question can also be answered differently from model to model. At normal, average load, however, a cooker should last at least 15-20 years, according to the W & P Lifetime Table. So if you buy yourself a good model, you have definitely taken care of the next few years.
How much does an electric stove cost?
Here it depends mainly on the variant. If you decide for a classic electric stove, you will find quite good models from just 200 €. A stove with ceramic hotplates can be found from 300 €. Here are no limits to the top. Particularly good models can then easily reach the price range of the induction cookers.
Finally, as just mentioned, the induction cooker. The Ferrari among the herds. This is reflected in the price. Here the first models start from 600 € and can hike very fast into the four-digit range.
Where can I buy it?
Nowadays you get a stove in many shops. If you have a preference for a certain brand, then you can stop by directly on the homepage of the manufacturer or visit one of their shops.
- AEG etc.
Otherwise, it is highly recommended to go to an electronics store and get advice there.
- Electric Haas
- Media market, etc.
Another tip are used stoves. Since electric stoves are usually stable for a few years, you can reach for a used stove without a guilty conscience. It pays off to browse various online ad portals.
- I want to have
Last but not least a big provider: Amazon.
Which pots and pans can I use?
This question can only be answered by dividing the electric range into its three variants. You can use any kind of pots and pans on the classic electric cooker and the ceramic hob. You just have to be careful that they match the sizes of the cooktops – which will rarely be the case with the classic electric cooker because the cooktops are not adapted to the different sizes.
It is different with the induction cooker. This works only with certain pots, which are equipped with a magnetizable iron core. Since the heat is produced directly in the pots, normal pots would “not work”, so to speak.
Decision: What kind of electric cooker is there and which is the right one for you?
The electric range is basically divided into three groups:
- Classic electric stove
- Stove with ceramic hob
- induction cooker
For which stove you finally decide depends mainly on the available budget and space in the kitchen. Also, the power consumption is a crucial factor in the purchase of an electric cooker – there may also times quietly resorted to the more expensive model. We want to help you with your decision and introduce you first of all the three types with their advantages and disadvantages.
Purchase criteria: These factors allow you to compare and rate electric stoves
In the following section we would like to show you some important factors that you should pay attention to when making your decision. We want to help you to find exactly the right product for you.
This summarizes the following points:
- Type of hob
- installation type
- Heating type
- Size of the stove
- power consumption
- Simplicity of cleaning
In the following paragraphs, you can get more information about these factors or read why you should pay attention to these factors.
1. Type of hob
Probably the most important question when buying an electric stove: how is it operated? As already mentioned, there are three different types of electric cookers: the classic electric cooker with raised hobs, the stove with ceramic hob and the induction cooker.
All three types have their advantages and disadvantages. These were already explained in detail at the beginning and will now be briefly summarized again. Here you will get to the individual species and you can read everything a little more carefully.
Let’s start with the classic electric stove. This consists of the so-called “mass cooktop” and has not a whole hob, but individual, elevated hotplates of steel or iron. However, as these stoves do not match the pots and pans, the food does not cook so quickly and the consumption is accordingly higher. In price, the classic electric stove is the cheapest option.
The ceramic hob is the most popular form of electric cooker and consists – as the name implies – of a ceramic hob. This cooking plate is immediately a big advantage over the classic electric stove, because it is just a continuous plate. Pots can be easily moved from A to B and cleaning is much easier. The price level is approximately between the other two variants, but there are also very cheap or very expensive models.
Finally, the induction cooker. Again, you have a continuous plate that is operated by induction. Through this advanced technology, one achieves optimal energy utilization and has a very low consumption. For an induction cooker, however, you usually have to dig deep into your pocket. Add to that the special dishes that this stove needs.
2. Installation type
Here, a distinction is made between the design of the respective cooker. Between the built-in stove and the stove. Which one decides depends in most cases on the existing kitchen. The difference is only in the installation and connection.
The built-in stove is the “more elegant” variant and is installed directly in the kitchen unit. The connection is a bit more complicated here and the stove usually a bit more expensive. In a modern kitchen you do not get around a built-in cooker. The stove is a freestanding stove and can be placed anywhere. The connection is a lot easier and the price lower.
3. Heating type
Which types of heating the oven has available, can also be an important criterion in the purchase decision. The most important ones are briefly explained and explained in this paragraph. These include the top and bottom heat, the hot air and the circulating air.
The heating function top and bottom heat is suitable for the preparation of many dishes, but especially for baking or roasting. In this type of heating, there are so-called heating resistors at the top and bottom, which heat the dishes from both sides. As this generates less heat than, for example, with circulating air, less liquid is removed and the food stays juicier.
If you only need the upper or lower heat, then the two functions can also be switched on separately. With the hot air system, hot air flows directly into the oven and the food is heated evenly. The whole thing works in a simplified way by a special fan. Hot air flows into the cooking chamber via air outlets on the oven rear wall.
As it gives you the same temperature at all levels, you can prepare several meals at the same time. Therefore, the hot air oven is particularly suitable for the preparation of several courses. In contrast to the circulating air, hot air is used immediately in hot air. This eliminates preheating and saves you a few minutes of waiting time.
The circulating air heating method is used on most ovens that are equipped with top and bottom heat. Here, the air is heated by the heating resistors of the top and bottom heat and then circulated in the cooking chamber of the furnace. This achieves a uniform temperature. However, the baking and roasting results are usually more even in hot air.
4. Size of the stove
Even with the size of the cooker you should definitely take care to take a stove with the right dimensions. Not every built-in cooker fits into the existing kitchen or not every cooker finds a suitable place in the kitchen.
Almost every stove has a different size. If you have a small kitchen, you should not make it smaller with a stove that is too big. Even a slightly smaller stove will certainly do its job well.
As mentioned above, built-in cookers are known to be installed in the kitchenette and have a designated place there. Here you have to pay particular attention to the dimensions. The size of the stove also plays a role in the oven. The larger the cooker, the greater the logistical volume of the oven.
5. Power consumption
Here you have to pay attention to the energy efficiency classes. Today, however, most flocks have Class A, which corresponds to a relatively low consumption. But even in this class you can choose between many models, which again have a lower consumption. If you spend a lot of time cooking, this research definitely pays off in the long term.
