opt for one with a single burner to save space while those who
have specialized culinary skills may like to buy ones with as
many as five burners to quicken the gourmet meal preparation.

Sleek and beautiful glass ceramic cooktops and halogen zones are
for designer kitchens. They are easy to clean, cook food faster
and have a flat surface to enable you to place pans of any size
on them. For expert cooks, gas cooktops are the best option as
they are energy efficient, give you greater control over heat,
can work with all types of pans and may have push-button
ignition feature. The ones, which are made to cut off the gas
supply if flame goes out, are the safest.
Hoods and fans
Hoods look high-tech and have effectively replaced traditional
chimneys to throw out smoke, steam and odors of the kitchen and
let in the fresh air. You may also use an exhaust fan instead that
are cheaper and can be hidden easily. Size and power of hoods or
fans for the kitchens should be chosen according to the size of
the kitchen, energy efficiency and less noise. In the apartments
where free flow of air is not so easily possible, you may want to
choose units with charcoal filters to purify air. Ones with
removable metal grease filter are easier to clean.
Refrigerators & freezers
You may choose your refrigerator and freezer according to your
needs. The kind, amount and duration of food that you need to
stock up determine the combination or separate models that you
will need. There are models that are built-in and save space with
latest features such as spill-proof and adjustable shelves, and
spacious drawers and compartments.
