Electric vs. Gas ovens

Gas or electric oven / hob? Which one is the best choice for you? An age old debate when it comes to which oven or hob to purchase. Here are a few points to consider when trying to decide to go for a gas or electric oven. Which is cheaper to run: If you run an electric oven you will use fewer units of energy, but because electricity costs more than gas per unit, this will cost you more in the long run.

It has been shown that electric is better for grilling. Electric grills do better at browning evenly, where as gas grill struggle from uneven heat distribution. You will have more choice when purchasing an electric oven. All big stores will have a large range of electric ovens for sale, yet only a few gas ovens for sale. This is not the case with hobs, you will still get plenty of choice when it comes to gas hobs. Hobs: Gas hobs heat quickly from the naked flame; it’s pretty much instant heat. Although, induction hobs are quick to heat up too, and do generally simmer at low temperate better than gas. Gas hobs also tend to be slower at heating up large pans of food vs. inductions hobs. Electric hobs are easy to clean, whether it...
