Stove is one of the most important home appliances that you must have in your home. Mostly it is used for cooking of course. If you do not have it, you probably might end up eating out every day for every meal. Although yes there are some alternative for you to cook such as microwave or oven but those appliances are not made for cooking so you can’t make everything with those.
If you have a stove, you could cook your meals everyday which is going to be so much economical than going out. There are some other benefits such as, it would be more healthy, you could have more control of your food, you know what’s in it, and you could have a control for the taste.
Lately, there is this electric stove that has been famous lately. This type of stove was invented a long way ago but lately a lot of people started to use it. Basically, rather than using gas just like the traditional stove, this kind of stove use electrical energy and turn them into heat that you could use for cooking.
Some places and peoples might find this electric stove very useful and convenient but not in some place and for some peoples. The question is which one should I buy the electric or gas stove. Both of it have their own advantages and disadvantages.
Which one that is easier to use
If you are new to one of this type of stove, of course you need to learn how to use it each of them. Gas stove that people has been using for quite a long time probably more familiar and easier to use rather than the electric stove.
You only need to turn the knob then the fire would pop up, you could use it and if you have finished you just need to turn it off. With the electric stove, is almost the same, only need to touch this and that, then you can cook with that. Both are easy to use and operate.
Since both of them are easy to use then how about the control. Well, I personally think that the electric stove have more control about the flame rather than the gas stove. Because it is electric, they have a numerical range about the flame so you would easily choose on what stage do you want your heat to be.
What you need to know that the stage of the heat between electrical and gas stove is different. So, medium flame on a gas stove wouldn’t be as hot as the medium flame on the electric stove. You really need to know about that because it will also be different between stove. Practice so you would get used to it.
Electric stove use electricity then turn it into heat. In terms of using electricity, of course the electric stove is not really effective because it consume a lot of electricity. While the gas stove is not, it uses gas.
In terms of heating, the gas stove produce an open flame so of course it is hot. But, the electric stove need some times to turn the electrical energy into heat so you have to preheat it before you use it. Just like preheat your oven. Electric stove also need some time to cool down, not like the gas stove that when we turn it off that’s it we are done. It would be more effective and faster to cook with the gas stove.
In terms of steadiness, the electric stove have a flat surface. It will give you the benefit of a very steady cooking so your pan won’t fall easily. Rather than the gas stove the electric one is more effective.
Of course in this subject, the electric stove wins a lot. The gas stove have so many places and spaces that have to clean out. It’s just so complicated and takes a lot of work.
While with the electric stove, it’s just a clean and flat surface. This surely will makes the cleaning process so easy. Just one wipe then you have your stove cleaned. Although maybe you need something special to clean it up with.
One of the problem that haunted gas stove users the most is gas leak. If something is wrong then you will have a big problem with your gas stove. You really need to be careful while using them. Meanwhile, if you use electric stove at least this gas leak problem won’t happened.
Both of this kind of stove have their own benefits and disadvantages. Which one to use is really based on where do you live and which stove that you are most comfortable to use. If you have to change to one of the stove then it might takes some time but you will get used to it easily.
