The kitchen is the heart of the home, and keeping it clean and well-equipped is essential to the health of your family. Many local home cooks opt for gas hobs, where the open flame and high heat are key to producing aromatic and intense flavours in food, as well as the slightly charred wok hei effect, which are trademarks of authentic Asian cuisine.

City Gas recently introduced a new range of 15 gas hobs that are available in a variety of sizes, materials, finishes – brushed stainless steel and black tempered glass – and burner combinations to suit the needs and preferences of individuals. This way, you’ll never have to worry that your wok is in the way of another pot, as you can choose your ideal hob size, with the right burner placements for your cooking needs. What’s more, they’re reliable as the flow of gas stops once the flame goes out. Prices start from $360 for the CG-722S model, and they cater to the growing needs of homeowners who are looking to install or replace their gas hobs at affordable price points, without compromising on design and safety.

Complement these appliances with a trusty gas leak detector that will keep your home safe. Avoid unnecessary mishaps as this device will alert you via loud alarm sounds or messages, should any potential gas leak be detected. At just $95 for a three-year warranty, or $115 for a five-year warranty, enjoy peace of mind at just six cents a day!

Developed by City Gas and made in Japan, the gas leak detector is not just reliable but easy to install too, in a three-step DIY process. It is also sleek and compact – the size of a palm – and can fit seamlessly in the kitchen or service yard.

With these, achieve a clean, fuss-free and safe kitchen environment in your home!
