Cooktop Installation

Upside Down can install your new electric oven and cooktop with fast and reliable service. Our experts are available 24/7, every day of the year. We’ve got the experience and expertise to look after your kitchen cooktop needs.

The Benefits of Installing a New Cooktop

It might surprise you just how much a brand new cooktop can improve your meal preparation and bring your kitchen into the modern era. A new cooktop is a must-have addition that instantly modernises your kitchen and enhances efficiency when it’s time for meal preparation.

The old cooktop just can’t compare with a new electric or gas model and certainly won’t compete with a cutting-edge induction model. So, whether you’re tired of broken burners and hard-to-clean surfaces or you’re upgrading to your dream kitchen, there’s a new unit which is ideal for your cooking needs.

Upside Down has a team of experienced technicians who can repair your existing electrical cooktop and oven or install brand new units at a time that suits you. We’re available 24/7, every day of the year, and we always aim to be at your door within an hour of your call* in an emergency.

Electric Cooktop Installation

Electric cooktops are favoured for modern homes thanks to their affordability and ease of use. Beyond the basics, electric models offer consistent temperatures and their flat, smooth surfaces are so convenient for cleaning.

Modern electric cooktops are made from ceramic and glass with electric coils that distribute radiant heat to your pots and pans. Once you’ve settled on a model, it’s incredibly important that a professional electrician completes the installation.

Cooktops and ovens are required by law to be installed by a licensed and qualified electrician. Most models are wired directly into the home’s circuitry as they need a 240-volt connection, which is higher than the voltage of standard powerpoints.

Make Upside Down your first choice when it comes to cooktop installation. Our local electricians have extensive knowledge and experience, from 50-year-old stoves to the latest in ceramic cooktop technology.

Gas Cooktop Installation

Natural gas is an efficient fuel that’s cheaper than electricity and produces up to 48% less in carbon emissions, making it a more sustainable option. This means that gas cooktops make a great choice should your home have the advantage of a natural gas connection.

A modern-look gas cooktop with stainless steel surrounds can cost more upfront that an electric cooktop, but the benefits are worth it. At Upside Down, we not only have electricians on the road but also plumbers and qualified gas fitters. A gas fitter must do all gas line work within the home, which includes gas ovens and cooktops.

Our technicians can detect faults, test for leaks, safely extend a gas line and install new appliances while removing the old gas cooktop.

There are also restrictions on positioning and minimal clearance requirements between gas burners and surrounds. When you rely on a professional gas cooktop installer, you take the guesswork out of the job and receive the necessary compliance certificate.

Induction Cooktop Installation

The induction cooktop offers the latest in-home cooking technology. These innovative appliances rely on electricity and require an expert for installation. However, they use a completely different process to standard convection cooktops.

Induction cookers feature copper coils beneath the glass and ceramic top. These coils create a magnetic current that transfers the heat directly into the pot or pan. As a result, your cooktop remains surprisingly cool to the touch and 85-90% of the heating energy is transferred to the pot.

Induction is also the most efficient form of cooking, heating foods and liquids much faster than standard electric and gas cooktops. These models cost more upfront, but the cooking and safety benefits are well worth the money.

FAQ – Everything You Need to Know About Cooktop Installation

Do you have any questions about cooktop installation? We’ve got answers to the most common questions for you.

Yes, you do. It's a requirement under Australian law that you have a licensed professional install your oven or cooktop. It doesn't matter if the unit is electric or gas. Both must be installed by the appropriate expert – an electrician or gas fitter – who will then provide a certificate of compliance and log the install with the correct governing body.

Induction cooktops cook fast and efficiently, and use less electricity than standard electric cooktops. For these reasons, they're favoured by chefs. Even Gordon Ramsay has induction cookers in his home. The only downside is that non-stick aluminium pans don't work with these cooktops. Instead, you will need to use cast iron or magnetic stainless steel pots and pans.

Induction is so fast and efficient that these impressive cooktops can have lower running costs than gas alternatives. However, the savings might not be great enough for you to consider upgrading unless you are already in the market for a new appliance.
