Gas or electric STOVE/OVEN

Do you have a gas or electric stove/oven? Which do you prefer?

I used to have gas but now we have electric. I think it's safer when you have lil ones but when the power goes out I miss my gas stove!

  • We have gas everything- stove/oven, dryer, water heater, heat. I grew up learning to cook on a gas stove and my mom taught me a respect for the flames and how to be careful around them. My kids are still too young to learn to cook, but we have safety latches on the oven and they can't turn on the stove top. Over the years that I lived in apartments I so missed cooking with gas. I like it because the cooking surface heats and cools quickly and evenly and it's easier to clean up if something boils over compared to the non glass electric cook tops.

  • We have an electric stove, and I really miss cooking with gas. Electric ovens are supposed to be more even, though. If you are really into baking, they make stoves with the combination of gas burners and electric ovens.

  • Electric Induction!!! I love my induction cooktop.
    And again...I have to have electric because there is no natural gas here and I will not put in a propane tank.
