Types of Cooktops We Can Install For Your Melbourne Kitchen
When it comes to choosing a cooktop, there are several options to consider. Each type of cooktop has its own unique features and benefits, and the choice ultimately depends on your specific needs and preferences. Here are four types of cooktops that 247 Local Plumber can install for your Melbourne kitchen:
Gas cooktops are a popular choice for many homeowners in Melbourne because they offer instant heat and greater temperature control. They also tend to be more environmentally friendly than electric cooktops, as they produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions during use.

Electric cooktops are another popular option for Melbourne kitchens. They offer a smooth, flat surface that’s easy to clean, and many models come with features such as touch controls and automatic shut-off. Electric cooktops can be powered by electricity from your home’s electrical system, and they don’t require a gas line. 247 Local Plumber can install electric cooktops of different sizes and styles, and we can help you choose one that fits your budget and meets your cooking needs.
Induction cooktops are a newer type of cooktop that use electromagnetic energy to heat the cookware directly. They offer fast heating and precise temperature control, and they’re also more energy-efficient than gas or electric cooktops. Induction cooktops require cookware made of magnetic materials, such as cast iron or stainless steel. We can install induction cooktops for your kitchen and provide advice on compatible cookware and usage.
Ceramic cooktops are a type of electric cooktop that uses radiant heat to heat the cookware. They offer a smooth, flat surface that’s easy to clean, and they come in a variety of colors and styles to match your kitchen décor.

Melbourne Stove Installation Process
Whether you are trying to install or replace a gas cooktop, you need an expert to handle the entire process for maximum safety. Our professional team of gas cooktop installers follow these steps to help you:
Turn off the gas supply
The safest thing to do at the start is to switch off the gas supply so that there is no chance of leaking or any other problems before everything is ready to go.
Insert cooktop into cavity
If replacing a gas cooktop, then the previous one will first be extracted. In some cases, there may be protrusions of materials or other obstructions that block the new cooktop from fitting in properly. These will be removed as well.
Connect electrical and gas supply
Ideally, the electrical plug should be connected to a socket before gas is connected. The gas regulator and piping will then be linked to the gas supply. It is crucial to double check that all connections are tight and secure during this step to prevent future hassle. Gas supply will be temporarily turned on to perform tests, then turned back off to finish the installation.
Seal cooktop to countertop
Once everything is adequately connected and tested to be safe, the gap between the cooktop and countertop can be sealed. This can be done with clamps, caulk, or special foam usually included with the cooktop.
Reactivate gas supply and perform final checks
Gas supply can now be resumed for final testing of the cooktop, with special attention paid to whether or not there are leaks. If everything is functioning perfectly, then stove installation is complete.
