If you're a fan of stir frying, you might like to take a closer look at this stainless steel gas hob from Whirlpool; it features a large four-ring burner that's ideal for this type of cooking. But will you be able to fit all your other pans on to the AKT680 at the same time? We gathered a range of pans together and tried this gas hob for size, along with other tests.

Hob reviews you can trust

Models from the biggest hob brands are tested at the Which? Test Lab – including AEG, Bosch, De Dietrich, Electrolux, Neff, Siemens and Zanussi. And we also test hobs from cheaper brands to see how they compare. Our tests are made up of the two things we all use our hobs for: heating quickly and simmering.

Which? is independent - we work for you, the consumer, so you can be sure that our product recommendations are influenced only by our test results. We don't take advertising and we buy all the products that we test ourselves, so our advice helps you to make the right choice first time and avoid costly mistakes.
