Though the burner ignition is electronic with all three of these cooktops, when there is no electricity a match or lighter can be used to light the burners. Having electricity is not a a requirement to turn on the burners, it only facilitates the task.

Empava and Bosch cooktops come each with a flame failure protection feature that prevents gas leakage if the flame goes out for some reason:
- Empava cooktop automatically shuts off the gas to prevent gas leak if the flame goes out.
- Bosch cooktop features electronic re-ignition that will automatically re-ignite the burner in case the flame goes out.
Gas cooktops use grates to support cookware above the flame. A cooktop can have grates for each burner that leave space between the burners, or it can have grates that butt against each other, providing a continuous support surface for cookware.
Cast iron material provides strong and stable support for your cookware and contributes to the durability of heavier pots. There is also enamel coating that provides the grates with resistance to high temperatures and rusting. The heavy-duty grates of these three cooktops are easy to clean in the dishwasher.
The removable heavy cast iron grates these three cooktops are equipped with can be cleaned in the dishwasher for hassle-free, effortless cleaning and maintenance to enhance the premium look.
The key advantage of a sealed burner is that the drip pan underneath closes around the burner so as to catch all spills, making for easier clean-up.
All three cooktops considered here are convertible to Propane (LP) powered cooktops, if required.
The provided user manual explain how to install the gas cooktops and how to convert them into LP cooktops.
There are however a few differences you should keep in mind:
- Deli-Kit cooktops have only four burners, while Empava and Bosch cooktops are equipped with 5 burners, giving you more cooking space and flexibility.
- Bosch cooktop provides the largest amount of heat generation, all the way up to 19000 BTU, followed by the Empava cooktop which can generate up to 12000 BTU and Deli-Kit which can generate up to 9385 BTU.
- Empava and Bosch cooktops come each with a flame failure protection feature, not available on the Deli-Kit cooktop (see Note 3).
