    Question Gas or Electric - What do you Like to Cook on?

    Which do you prefer and which do you have in your kitchen?

    I've always had an electric stove and just recently had a few nice flat tops, but I've had a few jobs working in the kitchen and you're just missing out if you don't have a flame IMO

    Maybe that's why I love to grill out, because you can use the fire and have different heat zones on the cooking surface.

    What are your thoughts?

    Electric. Because you can use it when you don't have a gas.

    I adore a gas flame. It is much easier to titrate heat settings, you don't have to wait for the burner to warm up, and I like to throw tortillas right on top to warm them.

    Someday, someday...I'm going to have a gas stove! I'll have to have the gasline put in and all that, ick. But, for now, I have a really nice-nice smooth-top electric range that I like a whole lot!
    I better like it, danggit, I picked it out LOL!

    Well, for me it's better to have both because you can cook faster using gas while you can use electric stove when you don't have enough gas..

    Gas.

    Because if you have a pot of milk on the stove that is about to run over, all you have to do is turn the burner off.

    With an electric stove, you must move the pot, or the milk WILL boil over!

    Although traditionally I have been a BIG fan of Gas, in our current house we had an older electric stove which I replaced with a glass-top. Heating dishes up on it is very comparable to Gas, however as Big Daddy has pointed out you still need to move things to a cool burner if they are about to boil over. Overall, I like the glass-top stove very much, just have to adjust my cooking a little bit, but not a big deal.

    I never thought I'd like gas as it's harder to control the temp, but we moved into a place with a gas cooktop and I've never looked back.

    The stove in my apt is a very old one and the oven is off by about 25 degrees.

    We have an electric cook top in our apartment and I can't stand it. I grew up cooking and working with gas stoves and I find it much easier to control heat.

    I would love love love to get an induction stove. So expensive though!

    I agree with you. I do prefer Gas than Electric. Electric is a good alternative but for me Gas was always my priority..

    I've always cooked with gas so it's what I'm accustomed to.

    I've applied for low-income housing up the street near the subway.

    Those apts are all-electric, which means that they all have electric stoves.

    Gas cook top. Down here in southern Louisiana losing electricity is more likely to happen than losing gas. During Gustav we let several neighbors use our kitchen.

    I am lucky to have both of both worlds a Jen-Air dual fuel stove. Gas top range and double electric oven with the larger oven being convection.
