What is the difference between hobs and separate hobs?

Hob meets cooker

Hobs can be installed in combination with a cooker. The hob is then controlled via the cooker operating unit.

Separate hobs

A separate hob has its own operating element, its own mains connection and can thus be integrated into a worktop completely independently of the oven.

What forms of heat are available for independent hobs?

Induction hobs only generate heat where it is actually needed – directly underneath the pan. This improves energy efficiency and allows things to be brought to the boil faster. Overcooked foods no longer burn on.

Bosch gas hob with sophisticated design and perfect heat control


When you cook with gas, heat is created by an open flame. The heat is transmitted directly to the base of the pan. To be able to use gas hobs, your kitchen must be connected to the gas supply.

Bosch electric ceramic hob


Electric hobs, such as ceramic hobs, transmit heat via a heating coil to the ceramic plate, which then warms the bottom of the pan.

What worktops are particularly suitable for flush-installed hobs?
