Hobs with enamel surfaces are available in a variety of colours. Ceramic hobs have a black surface but their frames are available in a wide selection of colours. Stainless steel surfaces do not offer variety in terms of colour although the stainless steel may be brushed which offers two alternative effects.

The standard number of plates for both electric and gas hobs is four. There are hobs though, which can have the number of plates ranging from one to six.
Generally, most modern appliances are being built to be compatible with all worldwide voltages, from 100 volts in Japan to 240 volts in the United Kingdom. However the power outlets differs between countries.
Input: ~100-240V 50/60Hz 65W -- This means the appliance is compatible with multiple voltages. This item can be used just about anywhere in the world, and any difference in voltage is basically irrelevant.
Input: 115/230V 50/60Hz 200W -- This means that the appliance can be switched between 110-120 volts in North America, and 220-240 volts in other parts of the world. This is common of desktop computers and some hair dryers/irons/etc. You probably have to flip a switch setting it in the proper position.
Input: 120V 60Hz 2.8A -- This means that the appliance is only compatible with a single voltage, in this case, 120 volts. To use this appliance safely, the voltage needs to be changed from 220-240 volts to 110-120 volts by way of a voltage converter or transformer.
