If you are in the market for new kitchen appliances, you might consider investing in propane stove tops. More often than not, professional chefs prefer cooking on gas ranges for a variety of reasons. However, you don’t have to be a culinary master to enjoy cooking on a propane cooktop. Even the most novice chefs often prefer cooking on gas stove tops for a variety of reasons. Today we will dive into the reasons why gas-powered ranges are so popular:


Response speed is perhaps the biggest reason that people love to cook on propane ranges. Electric stove tops take a long time to heat up and equally as long to cool down. In comparison, gas ranges heat up quickly, so boiling water and sauteing food is much more convenient. Additionally, gas ranges cool down more rapidly than electric stove tops. When you turn off a gas burner, your heat source is immediately disconnected and your burners cool much faster. You cannot clean your burners until they are cool, so you won’t have to wait very long to clean when you have gas burners.

Control Over Temperature

Because electric burners take longer to cool down, controlling the temperature can be tricky. You may have to take the pan off electric burners after turning off the heat to avoid overcooking your food.  With gas burners cooling down rapidly, you won’t have to worry about overcooking your food if you leave it on the burner with the heat turned off.

Warped Pans? No Problem!

If you have a pan that is warped, cooking on an electric stove can be problematic due to its flat surface. Warped pans do not sit evenly on electric burners, and the food will not cook evenly, often resulting in “hot spots.” However, you can still cook your food evenly on gas burners even if you have warped pans because they still receive an even amount of heat.

Easy To Clean

Without a doubt, cleaning electric burners is a pain in the neck. On older models, you have to remove the burners and clean underneath them. If you don’t regularly clean this type of stove top, you could set off your fire alarm every time you cook because food particles underneath your burners will heat up and start smoking. More modern electric burners are also difficult to clean because you risk scratching the surface and you have to use a special cleaning agent to avoid streaking the glass countertops. On the other hand, cleaning gas burners is simple and easy. All you have to do is remove the steel grates and wipe away crumbs and any spills.
