    The Best Gas Cooker 2020

    Hotpoint Ultima HUG61X Gas Cooker

    Hotpoint Ultima HUG61X Gas Cooker

    The Hotpoint Ultima HUG61X is a great looking double gas cooker that is ideal for families and offers great value and space. The main oven is 77 litres and 32 litres for the top oven.
    The main conventional oven is good for both slow cooking and baking, as heat rises so the dishes are thoroughly cooked. It also means they are hotter at the top, for a crisp finish. A second oven gives you some extra space when it comes to the bigger meal times, and there is also a grill.
    The addition of a minute minder timer is really handy – you will always know when your food is good to go!

    Beko ADVG592K

    Beko ADVG592K

    Not only is this one of the best value gas cookers at under £300, but the A+/A energy rating also makes it economical to run in the long term, so it is affordable to use too.
    It is a conventional oven so heat rises at the top, meaning dishes such as pasta bakes will always be thoroughly cooked and baked potatoes will be fluffy yet crisp on top. In the upper chamber, there is a grill which can be used on its own, and everything is controlled using the rotary dials at the front of the cooker which makes for an easy dinnertime.

    Beko KA52NEW

    Beko KA52NEW

    This cooker really makes a bit of a statement. The style is not common these days, but we have to say that we actually think it is going to suit a lot of people.
    The grill is at eye level, at the top of the cooker so not technically in a chamber. This means it is technically a 3-in-1, as there is also a large main oven chamber and a storage area at the bottom which is great for keeping all of your pans and trays in one place.
    So if you are really short on space but still want the full experience without something which looks too ‘cubic’, this is a great bet. It is slightly smaller in capacity overall than a few others on the market, and you may not like the idea of open grilling, but if the space is enough and you don’t mind the latter point then it is one of the easiest cookers to navigate.

    Electra SG50B

    Electra SG50B

    Electra aren’t the biggest name in the game, but their cooker hoods and appliances which we have previously tested have all passed with flying colours.
    This cooker is no different. It is a standard four burner hob, with one cavity including a grill and easy to use dials to get everything just right. It is also a little bit smaller than many others around, making it perfect if you have a smaller than average gap in your kitchen.
    While it may be basic, with just one setting on the grill and additions such as a timer or screen missing, but for under £200 we can’t complain and are sure you will have many years of use out of it.

    Beko KTG611K

    Beko KTG611K

    This Beko gas cooker is the epitome of great value. It can be bought for under £350, yet has some features which are more commonly found in units over twice the price.
    There is a main conventional oven which is great at preparing a range of foods, from meat joints to muffins and al forno dishes. Then there’s a separate grill chamber which can add the finishing touch to lasagnes or cottage pies.
    If you have been searching for a new gas cooker for a while, but are put off by models which look over-complicated and hard to control, then the simple dials of this Beko will be welcomed. Simply turn to fire it up, and adjust the power depending on how far they are twisted.
    The ceramic interior keeps the coating relatively clean – just wipe when cool to get rid of any crumbs and spills. The door inner glass is also removable for when you need to give it a scrub, and an interior light will allow you to both check on the cooking process and where needs some cleaning attention.

    How to Buy a Gas Cooker

    As you start searching for the best gas cooker to buy, you will be inundated with options and considerations when purchasing. That is why we like to simplify everything and do the taxing work here at Which Cooker. We research the ovens and cookers for ourselves and report back to you here, to allow you to make an educated decision.

    You can easily skim through our options and read up on the pros and cons before making a decision but there are some important factors to consider before committing to a purchase.

    • Capacity – Look for a double or single oven depending on whether you need to use two ovens at the same time. Also consider whether you’d want a separate grill.
    • Dimensions – Check the room you have available in your kitchen and then take a look at the dimensions of the cooker before purchasing. You don’t want to purchase only to find it doesn’t fit.
    • Additional Features – Take a look at the extra features widely available and decide which ones you need. You can get slow cook functions, timers, instant heat ups and numerous power settings.
    • Hob Space – Check that you will have the right number of hobs and burners, and that they are well spaced if you own larger pans such as woks.
    • Safety – Safety features are important, especially when working with gas, and we have highlighted many that come with an auto-shut off function.
