Every new American West home comes with a gas cooktop. Why do we choose gas cooktops for our new homes? What are the benefits of a gas cooktop?
Benefits of a gas cooktop:
Accurate Cooking Temperatures
With a gas cooktop, the heat to the cookware transfers immediately because a gas flame immediately grows larger or smaller with a turn of a dial. With an electric range, the burner has to heat up or cool down.
Evenly Distributed Heat
The flame of a gas cooktop is centralized and allows for even distribution of heat to the cookware, which reduces scorching.
Lower Heat Emissions
Gas cooktops emit less wasted heat than electric cooktops. The gas flame and heat also immediately disappears when turned off which makes them safer. With an electric cooktop, you have to wait for that burner to heat up and cool down.
Faster Cooking Time
Gas heat is immediately available. Turn it on and the flame is ready to use, so it takes less time to cook. You can also adjust temperature moment to moment.
No power? No Problem.
In the event that your electricity goes out, you can still prepare a meal with your gas cooktop.
A gas cooktop will lower your electrical bill. Rates for natural gas tend to be lower than the rates for electricity which saves you money.
Chefs Choose Gas Cooktops
Professional chefs love to cook with gas because they provide greater heat control than electric cooktops. Gas ovens also retain moisture in foods more consistently than their electric counterparts.
