Only the top of the burner protrudes above the glass surface of the gas hob. This significantly improves the design and makes the appliance easier to clean.
No more fingers burnt from trying to light the burner with matches or those ever faulty spark lighters. Thanks to the Auto ignition in the knob lighting the burner becomes extremely easy and convenient. You can do everything with one hand. Press and turn the knob to light the burner. Take the heat off yourself, and make kitchen work convenient.
As well as being easy to keep clean, the cast iron pan supports are more resistant and stable, thus guaranteeing easy and safe usage.
It might get dangerous if the burner accidentally goes out. However, not in Hansa cookers, which are equipped with a special valve that cuts off the gas supply. Safety above all else!
