Which do you have, Gas or Electric Stove?

which do you like better? I hear gas is better for cooking for safety I like electric. I have electric now. With gas worry about someone turning it on by accident.

  • I have two stoves. One runs on wood. The other has 3 gas and one electric (the ovens are electric). Safety norms have evolved a lot over the last couple of decades. Gas stoves cannot be accidentally turned on. The gas doesn't come out unless your press the button for a few seconds after lighting. If the flame blows out the gas cuts out. No risk.

    I like the wood one for long simmer jobs in late autumn/winter and replace it with the electric for that when it gets hot (the wood stove doubles as heating and produces 10 Kw ... ). For everything else, I prefer gas.

  • I have electric and have had gas.
    You know those cooking shows? Ever see them working with electric? No? That's because gas is better!
