    Hi CWanamaker, the main difference between gas and electric apart from the cost of the fuel is temperature control. Having a chef in the family drilled this into me. You can get to temp quicker, maintain that temp better and reduce temp quicker with gas.

    I'm no chef but if you are cooking something time critical you will get the results you want with gas,

    From a chef point of view, gas cooking have many advantages over electric . The heat change is immediate and precise with these types of cooking surfaces. Also, gas cooking stoves generate less overall heat so that your kitchen is much cooler. You also won't have to worry about how flat your stove is because the heat is generated by a flame not electric coils. Modern gas stoves also have electronic ignitions so they are easier to start. If you're still cooking with an electric stove, you should consider switching to a gas stove. You won't regret it.
