  • I have had both and I would absolutely choose Gas over electric every time! It's as bad as cooking with Visions cookware! It does not cool down fast enough. When I want low heat, I WANT LOW Heat! lol!

  • Gas...I have never had any luck with electric. I think it has to do with being able to actually see the flame to adjust it.

  • I have cooked on all types of stoves and I LOVE my glass top range now! You can regulate the heat easily, and it cleans up and looks new, even after of 3 years of cooking on it!! I won't ever have anything else!

  • Gas, I was so happy when we moved into this house and it had a gas range. I think you can adjust the heat better on a gas stovetop.

  • I like gas better. We just moved a couple of months ago, and our new home has electric. I miss the flame and the ease of adjustments on my gas stove.
