I'm looking for suggestions for gas/induction combo hobs (or mix and match dominos) for our kitchen.  We currently have a 75cm, gas hob.   90cm range hood (newly installed) so we could go to ~80cm total width on the hob.


In our previous house we had an induction hob.  I'm experienced with induction and found it great for everything except my wok.  I strongly prefer a round bottomed wok and it's my most frequently used pan, so gas is the only option there.


I'd go gas if I had to choose, my partner prefers induction.  She's not interested in a portable gas hob and plug in point.  Currently we have a portable induction hob for making preserves and for hotpot night.


If we can't find a combo unit, then clearly a conscious uncoupling is the only option.

I think you'd be pretty rare to want both, I suspect it'll be one or the other.

We went through similar discussions with our new build, I prefer induction but my wife being a trained chef prefers gas. We ended up with a 60cm Induction top & a 30cm gas top next to it.

I don't claim to have heard of this before but it looks like domino cooktops were designed with this in mind

Asko make more than one induction cooktop with gas wok burner.

There are also special induction units designed for woks that you could consider. That said they are quite expensive, and I guess they are targeted at applications where gas is not feasible like on superyachts.
