What kind of stove do you prefer?

We've had gas, electric ranges, and now a ceramic top. I have to say, I HATE the ceramic top and my favorite was gas stoves.

  • I prefer gas stoves. Gas is much better for baking & I like that I have more control over the burners than with an electric cooktop. I have sealed gas burners, so my stovetop is easy to keep clean and the oven is "self-cleaning", although it doesn't really get that dirty because I use a silpat liner.

  • I like electric because you don't have to worry about a pilot light going out and having gas seep into the house... I had a gas stove and I swear I was constantly on the floor checking that damn flame :P

  • I just wish I had a flat stop stove so it'd be so much easier to clean.

  • I have only ever had electric, regular and flat top. My DH says gas is better.

  • My mom has a flat top and I have electric. I never want a flat top because they keep are awful to keep clean. When she got hers I got half of her cook wear because it couldnt be used on the flat top.

  • Gas and only gas. We have an auto pilot light. I love cooking with my cast iron cookware and if I had a ceramic top I wouldn't be able to use it.

  • I hated my ceramic stove as well. Hard to keep clean- hard to heat-UGH! I like my gas stove the best!
