​Why Trust Us?

To find the best gas stove in India we read through suggestions from multiple websites. We also analyzed the best sellers and highest rated products on Amazon and Flipkart.

How we selected?

Our search for the best gas stove took us to many websites that had recommended multiple options. Here we found some key features that are present in gas stoves and the various types of gas stoves. Then we decided to split our work and find three separate gas stoves: a two burner, three-burner and a four-burner system. This way you can choose the best one of any size that you want according to your needs.  

Next, we analyzed some of the best sellers and highest rated product on Amazon and Flipkart by reading through verified customer reviews.

​Best four burner gas stove (In-detail)

Pigeon Ultra Glass Stainless Steel gas stove

Pros:

  • One of the most affordable 4-burner stove in the market

  • Brass Burners for better efficiency

  • Anti Skid rubber feet

  • Pan Supports

  • Scratch-resistant glass and steel design looks and feels premium

  • Available in two and three burner option also

  • ISI Marked

  • 2-year warranty

Cons:

  • No auto ignition

Compared to the silver colored all steel gas stoves of yesteryears, the latest models are quite stylish with glass tops and stainless steel bodies. The Pigeon Ultra Glass is no different with a lovely scratch resistant glass top and a stainless steel body. This gives the gas stove not just its strength but also a modern look which should match most modern kitchens.

The Pigeon Ultra Glass comes in three configurations of two burners, three, and four burners. Whichever size you pick, you get brass burners and a pan support. We would particularly recommend the four-burner option as that offers the most value at just Rs. 3,299.

Other features include the rubber feet that prevent the stove form moving about and the easy to use knobs.

Using the glass on the top actually makes it very easy to maintain and clean the gas stove which was difficult with a steel top stove which used to get stained quickly.

Piped gas is now available in many cities of India, but by default, all the Gas stoves including this one come with nozzles designed for LPG cylinder only. But you needn't worry as the technician who will install your piped connection will make the necessary changes to your stove.

Do note that while the Pigeon Ultra Glass has modern features and design it still has to be manually ignited, this is something we found in almost all the gas stoves in the market currently. Auto-ignition is a feature more common on hub tops and more expensive gas stoves, but the ones online had relatively poor reviews.

Specific look at gas burner

You also get a 2-year warranty with the gas stove and you have to take it to your dealer or nearest service center for repairs.

The Pigeon Ultra Glass was also one of the highest rated and reviewed gas stove online garnering 4.1 stars and nearly 4200 reviews. People were particularly pleased with its value for money and performance.

In terms of complaints, some people did find the knobs to be a little hard, while some complained the pan supports were a little slippery. A common complaint on all the gas stoves we saw online was that some of them leaked gas which can be hazardous, so we requested you to insert the gas pipes properly (or get a professional to do them) and use new pipes if necessary.

The Pigeon Ultra Glass is an online exclusive product and that lets Pigeon price it very competitively, in fact, it's one of the most affordable four burner gas stove. This gives you great flexibility and performance and makes it one of the best gas stove in India. 

Best two burner gas stove (In-detail)

Sunflame GT pride 2 burner

Pros:

  • Brass Burners for better efficiency

  • Anti Skid rubber feet

  • Pan Supports

  • Scratch-resistant glass and steel design looks and feels premium

  • Available in three and four burner option also

  • ISI Marked

  • 2-year warranty

Cons:

  • No auto ignition

  • A little more expensive than our best pick

The Sunflame GT Pride 2 is similar in design and features to the Pigeon Ultra Glass, in fact, it would take you a while to even spot the difference between them.

The Sunflame is available in different burner quantities like two, three and four. The burners are made of brass and come with a pan support.

Like our best pick, the Sunflame gas stove too is made of stainless steel and comes with a scratch proof glass top. If however, you look really closely the stainless steel base is actually matte finished.

Close look at its burner

We would recommend the two burner version of the Sunflame gas stove as that feels more value for your money and people found it to be very good in performance, design, and utility. While the Sunflame GT Pride 2 had decent reviews and rating we did find that one customer who complained that his stove went up in flames after cooking was done, this could be an isolated incident so make sure you check your gas lines properly and make sure they are inserted by a professional.

For around Rs.2,300 the Sunflame GT Pride 2 might have a terrible name but is, in fact, a good gas stove for your kitchen. The glass makes it look classy and easy to clean and the option of two, three or four burners means it will suit you irrespective of your family size.

​Best budget gas stove in India (In-detail)

Pros:

  • Most affordable 3-burner stove in the market

  • Anti Skid rubber feet

  • Pan Supports

  • Scratch-resistant glass and steel design looks and feels premium

  • Available in two and four-burner option also

  • ISI Marked

  • 1-year warranty with door step service

Cons:

  • No auto ignition

  • Burners not made of brass

Lifelong offers affordable gas stoves that have the same features and specifications as the Pigeon and Sunflame products. You get a stainless steel body, glass top, multiple burner options and rubber feet.

Close look at the burner

Their three-burner stove is particularly good as it is one of the most affordable in its class at around Rs.2600 and has good reviews from customers who liked the value of the product, performance, and Lifelong’s after-sales service. This makes it one of the best budget gas stoves in the market. 

​After Sales service

Pigeon and Sunflame offer a 2-year warranty on their gas stoves. In case of any issue, you have to take the product to a Pigeon service center or a Sunflame service center.

Lifelong meanwhile offers only a 1-year warranty on the product but they offer doorstep service unlike Pigeon and Sunflame. Lifelong also allows you to send them a video describing any issue your face with the gas stove or take the product to one of their partner customer care center and if a fault is detected in the product a new replacement product will be delivered to your doorstep.

Who are our best picks for?

The reason we suggested different picks is because each house has a different number of members and people will choose the gas stove accordingly. While a two burner is sufficient for a family or 2 or 3, a large family will prefer more burners. So you can't really go wrong with any one of the recommended picks from Pigeon, Sunflame and Lifelong.

Also, one advantage of using gas stoves is that you can use pretty much any utensils irrespective of their material. So if you are buying a gas stove and some utensils to go with it like a pressure cooker, do check our article on pressure cookers.

Final Thoughts

If you are in the market for a new gas stove and are confused with the many options available online, we have three different picks for you that will be perfect for your needs.

The Pigeon Ultra Glass is an affordable and well-built gas stove that is available in two, three and four burner options but we would like to recommend the four-burner option as that gives you the most value for money.

The Sunflame GT Pride 2 is similarly equipped as the Pigeon Ultra Glass and it too comes in three options. The two burner option is what we liked the most as that offers a good balance of performance and value.

Finally, the Lifelong Glass top stove offers the cheapest prices in all three burner options and it too the same features as the Pigeon and Sunflame except the burner material. So the Lifelong is what you must pick if your budget is a little tight. You can pick any version but the three burner option makes the most sense.
