This time I didn't take so much time to make survey and decide which hob that I want. Few months back, I was very fascinated with the 'Inner Flame' Tech which was inspired by Rinnai.
Today, we went again to the same shop where we bought the 2.5 sink in Jalan Ipoh and we were also wondering whether other manufacturer had also produced the same Tech. Only Rinnai and Millea that produced that Tech. Most of the Inner Flame Hob price above RM1.5K except the one that we bought: RB-2GSi. The shop sell it at RM1100, but then we went to another fav. shop in Jalan Kepong that offer us the best price of the same model : RM900. Alhamdulillah , RM 200 saving is a lot!
Let me share some info of the Technology. RINNAI's exclusive "Inner Flame" :
(i) Powerful & controllable even heat
(ii) Higher heat efficiency as compared to normal burners
(iii) Perfect simmer control, superb for making soup
(iv) Easy to clean as compared to normal burner
Read about the Burner Performance Comparison between Inner VS Normal burner.
I'm still wondering whether we need to buy the hood. Few people says that it doesn't really worth functioning (but worth decorating the kitchen i guess). Mom and hubby proposed we could use 2 top kitchen fans ( eh what we call ek that fan?) that has strong suction function instead of the hob. So, what say u? I need opinions!! FYI, I cook a lot daily..weekly ..and forever.
