  • Gas for sure! I grew up with electric and when I first got a gas stove it took me a while to adjust but now, I hope I never have to live with an electric stove again :)

  • I have an electric stove, but I would rather have a gas one. When the current one dies I will replace it with a gas one.

  • Gas is better but I have a fear of gas houses in general so I use electric. I wont live in a gas house.

  • I prefer electric.. I grew up in a gas house with a gas stove and I was ALWAYS scared (watch too many rescue 911 episodes). I remember one night the gas was left on in the stove and the house filled up with gas while we were sleeping. Thank God I woke up and we called 911 and evacuated the house! I have been scared ever since and scared that the kitchen will blow up one day.

  • I don't really care which one. Basically, I learn how to use the stove I have, and get used to it. Changing is hard because you have to learn all over again, but once I get used to it, that is the preferred method.

  • I like gas because I can control the heat better, but have an electric. I'm used to my stove, cooking on others throws me off.

  • Electric. I grew up with a gas stove, and especially now that I have kids I really like electric better. My IL's have gas and it scares me when my MIL cooks with my kids around.

  • I like electric, I have never been able to scramble eggs on a gas stove (always burnt) I think it is just what you are used to. I have always had electric
