Lot of options in gas stoves in online shopping

Gas stoves have made cooking easier, faster, convenient and comfortable. Two, three or more dishes can be cooked simultaneously and in a short time, without any problems. The heating is faster, more intense, and better controlled. It can be turned off completely instantaneously, when and if necessary. A normal, average nuclear family can comfortably do all the cooking on a two-burner stove. A bigger family may need a three-burner gas stove or a four-burner gas stove.
Performance and looks
The modern gas stoves have stainless body, perhaps with toughened glass top. The gas stoves not only perform their main function of producing heat well, they also look beautiful. They bring a fine look to the kitchen. The gas stoves have rust-free brass burners, usually with three rings. These produce a blue flame and prevent blackening of vessels. They are highly efficient burners. The gas flow is turned on and off and controlled by knobs. The stoves may have auto-ignition, meaning that the gas is ignited as the knob if turned to allow the flow. Or, the ignition could be done manually, by using a gas lighter. Below the burners, the stoves have rust-free stainless steel drip trays, for collecting any spillovers and ensuring that cleaning remains easy.

Efficient brass burners
All the burners can have the same size and capacity or one of them may be a small one to facilitate small cooking functions, like warming a small amount of milk for the child or getting a glass of warm water. The pan supports are specially designed to prevent any sort of inconvenience during cooking. The burners are spaced so far apart that four large pots can conveniently be put on them and things cooked simultaneously, quite comfortably. The stoves usually have a one-year warranty.
Competing companies
Dozens of companies manufacture gas stoves to suit various budgets. While a simple four-burner gas stove with a reasonably good performance may cost around Rs10000, the cost can go up and up to over Rs20000 for better-quality gas stoves. And there could be no upper limit as companies keep adding one small feature to every aspect of the stove and try to attract buyers.
Many allurements

They usually offer a free delivery within four or five days. The manufacturers set their price in their brochures. But they offer some discount there. The online shops offer more discounts. They also come up with festival offers, when the discounts can be higher. With most online shoppers now engaged in a fierce battle to wrest a fair chunk of the online market share across the country, the competition is intense.
