Top Ten Reviews, a review website run by media conglomerate Purch, offers a detailed comparison of the 10 best gas cooktops for 2015 on its website. The review analyzes models from eight manufacturers.
There are three major criteria evaluated for each cooktop model: burners, cleaning and installation. The first factor notes how many burners the unit, types of burners and how effective they are. The cleaning criteria rates how easily the unit is sanitized after use and whether there are removable parts to simplify the process. Finally, Top Ten Reviews rates how easily the cooktop is installed, and whether it requires an electrical power source in addition to a natural gas line.
