So, whether you love grilling, wok frying with gas or rapidly getting water to a boil for pasta night, you’ll have impressive flexibility when it comes to preparing your favourite dishes.

I’ve put together a comprehensive list of mixed fuel hobs, each with its own set of features you’ll want to have in your kitchen.

What Is A Mixed Fuel Hob?

A mixed fuel hob (sometimes called a dual fuel hob) simply combines two or more fuel/cooking types (Gas, Induction, Ceramic) into one appliance. Most commonly it combines two or four induction zones with one or more gas burners all built-in together in one hob.

And, with many models, you don’t lose any of the features associated with their individual counterparts. Such as flexi-zones, automatic pan recognition, boost modes and residual heat indicators on the induction side. Sturdy cast iron supports and single-handed ignition for the gas burners.

There’s even one hob on my list that’s a 3-in-1 hob as it features a ceramic griddle zone – great for searing meats and making pancakes.

Mixed fuel hobs really are a fantastic option if you want the best of both worlds all combined into one neat package.

– The Best Mixed Fuel Hobs –

Here’s my pick of the mixed fuel hobs. These are appliances I’ve personally used, tested at training days, demonstrated and sold over the years or had great feedback about from my clients. 👍

AEG HDB95623NB 88cm Mixed Fuel Induction And Gas Hob

AEG HDB95623NB 88cm Mixed Fuel Induction And Gas Hob

Dimensions: h47 x w880 x d520mm
Control Type: Touch controls/Rotary dials
Flexi-Zone: Yes
Wok Burner: No
Key Features: Stop & Go setting, residual heat indicators, cast iron pan supports, automatic gas hob ignition, child safety lockout

I’m a big fan of this AEG mixed fuel hob thanks to its multitude of must-have features.

If you’re interrupted while cooking, for example, the AEG’s Stop & Go feature reduces the heat across all zones to keep food warm and reverts back to your original setting when you’re ready to resume cooking.

StepPower allows you to control the heat on your hob precisely. The heat can be set at levels from 1 to 9, offering reliable results in the kitchen every time. So no more bending over to see how big the flame is!

Cast iron pan supports make it easier to manoeuvre heavy pans. Perfect for stir-fries. While residual heat indicators show when there’s still heat on the induction hob surface.

With features like control lockouts to prevent children (or cats, yes that’s actually happened) from activating the hob accidentally and single-handed automatic gas hob ignition, AEG’s mixed fuel hob is a well-rounded choice that’s perfect for any kitchen.

All these great features at a competitive price make this my ‘best overall‘ pick!
