The main plus of modern models is the lighter weight, there is gas control, cast-iron grilles. In addition, they fit perfectly into any room interior.
Owners of small kitchens should pay attention to miniature models of gas stoves. Most often, they go separately from the oven and are built into the kitchen structure. On average, the weight of such a plate is 20-25 kg. Such household appliances do not have big differences from bulky options.

The type of cooking grid affects weight. For gas stoves, iron and steel gratings are made. Cast iron will be heavier, but will also last much longer than steel.
