Comparing Gas and Electric Cooking

When you visit your local appliance showroom to pick out luxury appliances for your dream kitchen, remember that it’s important to consider more than just how an appliance looks. One of the most important considerations is whether you should choose gas or electric appliances. Each option offers its own advantages, so continue reading for help selecting the right kitchen appliances to fit your family’s needs.


Gas Ovens vs. Electric Ovens

Whether you end up choosing a gas or electric oven, if you select a model from a reliable, trusted brand, you’re sure to enjoy great performance that encourages your creativity in the kitchen. Both gas and electric high-end ovens provide even heating—the idea that electric ovens heat food more evenly is a myth. However, gas ovens do tend to heat up faster, which can be beneficial if you’re preparing a big meal or cooking on a short timeline. Electric ovens tend to provide a drier heat with lower humidity, which can be ideal if you enjoy preparing baked goods for your family.

 Gas Cooktops vs. Electric Cooktops

There is a much more noticeable difference between gas and electric cooktops than there is between gas and electric ovens. Gas cooktops tend to be pricier upfront, but are more efficient and can help you save money on your utility bills. On the other hand, electric cooktops offer simpler installation, and the flat cooking surface allows for more even heating. Most professional chefs and discerning home cooks prefer gas cooktops, however, as heat adjustments can be made instantaneously, providing more control over the cooking process.
