Kitchen Cooktops - Gas Cooktops for Your Home
Leading chefs agree that the instantly controllable heat of a direct flame gas kitchen cooktop, that wraps around the pan, provides the ultimate cooking experience. With Elgas LPG, that experience is available to you, no matter where you live, even if you don't currently have gas.
Gas is far more responsive than other energies, which is advantageous when instant heat and fingertip-control are so important. With gas kitchen cooktops and stoves you get immediate heat on ignition, instant response to any change of settings and even distribution of heat across the base of your pots and pans.

How long will a gas bottle last using an LPG gas kitchen cooktop?
That depends on the gas consumption rating of the burners being used. Burner gas consumption is expressed in mega joules or MJ of energy.
One litre of LPG has approximately 25MJ of energy content. A 45kg gas bottle contains just a bit more than 88 litres or approximately 2200MJ of energy.
So, to determine how long the gas bottle will last, you just divide 2200 by the MJ rating of the heater:
Example 1: a small 5MJ/H cooktop burner will run for approximately 440 hours* on a 45kg gas bottle (2200÷5=440)
Example 2: a large 12MJ/H cooktop burner will run for approximately 183 hours* on a 45kg gas bottle (2200÷12=183)
A 45kg gas bottle could last for a year or more when used just for cooking
