Is there a different way of cooking with a gas oven/stove instead of electric?
We bought a gas stove/oven. I have always used electric. Are there any real differences I should know about?
Gas heats much faster, almost instant and tends to be slightly hotter. While electric takes longer to heat up, it's more even heat.
Gas Ovens allow for more even heat spread for stove-top cooking, which will generally produce better results. Gas also heats up faster than electricity, allowing cooking to begin immediately. Some older gas ovens can be temperamental, which may require cooks to keep a close eye on food as it bakes. One of the biggest drawbacks to an electric stove is that it cannot be used during a power failure, while a gas powered oven can be used to cook hot food at any time.
There are a number of risks associated with gas ovens that may outweigh their benefits. The pilot light in the stove can lead to carbon monoxide leaks, which can be deadly if undetected. There is also a risk of fire associated with gas leaks. Owners of gas ovens must take care to keep combustible materials stored at a safe distance. gas ovens also require more complex ventilation systems than electric stoves.
