2. Safety Device
I’m sure you’ve experienced one of these before when cooking: a sudden gust of wind or your over-boiled soup spilling out and extinguishing your flame. In many cases, while the flame is extinguished, the gas supply is still turned on. This can lead to gas leakage, especially if left unattended.
Luckily, with Rinnai’s Flexi Hob series you don’t have to worry about this.
The Flexi Hob series has the Flame Failure Safety Device that prevents this from happening. As soon as the safety device detects the flame being extinguished when in use, the gas supply will be cut off immediately.
Don’t use the windshield
Speaking of safety, here’s a safety tip! You know the gas windshield that you see online that a lot of people are selling or using? Please avoid using it on your gas hob! That’s because the windshield causes the heat to get trapped. The trapped heat may cause the temperature to exceed the threshold that the glass of the gas hob can withstand which can cause the glass top to shatter.
The windshield also prevents enough oxygen required for proper combustion. Therefore causes yellow flames, which may blacken or damage the bottom of your pots and pans.
Lastly, the trapped gas in the windshield can also lead to excessive production of carbon monoxide whereby long-term inhalation can lead to health issues.
3. Sealed Burner
Rinnai also designed the series to have a sealed burner as it makes more sense to do so. Their sealed burner prevents any overflowing liquid from spilling into the inner compartment of the gas hob.
This sealed burner design also makes cleaning easier and hassle-free after cooking. It’s a very convenient feature as not all gas hobs have the sealed burner design.
4. Versatile Flame Setting with Simmer Control
Sometimes it might be difficult for you to control your hob’s flame but with Rinnai, their hobs offer perfect flame control. This means you’ll get powerful, controllable and even heating so every dish you cook turns out perfect.
This is due to the double ring burner that has multiple flame settings and simmer control so you can determine the heat effectively. With different kinds of flame settings available, you can cook up a storm with ease.
5. High Quality
Rinnai is the No.1 kitchen appliance brand in Japan and they have more than 100 years of experience in developing gas hob. This is why their gas hobs are definitely made with high quality and safety first in mind.
Their Flexi Hob series are made of sleek tempered glass top that is able to withstand high heat. Its shiny, smooth surface is durable and easy to clean in case of any spillage.
That’s not all, the knobs are user-friendly too. You can use one hand to control the flame with just a push and turn.
So, if you’re looking to replace your gas hob for your existing kitchen, the Rinnai Flexi Hob series is perfect for you. It’s effective, efficient and super easy to install. This series looks good in almost any kitchen and fits most kitchen countertops.
In addition, Rinnai offers 2 years general warranty, 5 years warranty for the gas valve and 10 years warranty for the glass top. So that you can cook, broil, grill, steam, fry and boil your next culinary creation with peace of mind.
