Why gas stoves are better than electric?
One common question is whether a separate cooktop and wall oven can be installed on the same circuit. The answer, according to the 2008 National Electric Code, is YES, provided certain conditions are met in the installation.
Burners: On gas ranges, you cannot use the cooktop burners while self-cleaning. Burners on models manufactured 2015 and after will operate during self clean; however, we strongly recommend waiting until after the cycle is complete to cook on the cooktop.
A range combines an oven and a stovetop, while an oven is either a part of a range or a separate appliance completely. Ranges are also sometimes called stoves.
Gas ring burners provide even heat distribution; combined with responsive temperature changes, it allows for greater control when cooking with pots and pans. Gas is also a much cheaper and efficient fuel than electric, and the cost of running a gas cooker over the course of a year is always cheaper than electric.
This is accomplished in one of two styles: a double oven range or double wall oven. Double oven ranges typically pair a smaller oven above a larger one, all within a standard 30-inch range. Though each oven in double range designs is smaller than a single oven, it offers more overall cooking space.
Having two ovens in a kitchen comes in handy, not just for those all-important holiday events like Christmas, but throughout the year too. You could easily have a main meal going in one oven, and a dessert or appetiser in the other.
Both gas and electric ranges have advantages, depending on what and how you cook. Gas ranges offer more responsive heat control for switching between searing meats or stir-frying veggies, while the dry, even heat of electric range ovens may work better for certain baked goods.
