Ever wondered why so many professional chefs prefer cooking with gas than electricity?  Gas has many great benefits. Here are five of them:

Tasty food cooked in less time

Unlike having to wait for your stove or oven to heat up, gas stoves produce an instantaneous flame, ensuring that you don’t waste energy.

Gas also cooks food faster than electricity. That means you can now spend more time doing what you love while still feeding your family with delicious, well-cooked food. 

It gives you better heat control

When you change the temperature on the electric stove or oven, it takes time for the desired temperature to be reached, which can sometimes mess up your food. However, with gas, the change is exact and instant.

You can use different pots

Electric stoves are flat and in order for the heat to be dispersed evenly, the entire bottom of the pot needs to be in contact with the elements. However, this is not the case with a gas stove. Heat from a gas stove is derived from the flame.

Cooking with gas saves the environment

Help save the environment by choosing to cook with gas.

Gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel. It produces less carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, dissolved solids or airborne particulates, all of which can be harmful to human and animal health. 

It’s cost-efficient

When cooking with gas, you save money because gas cooks faster than electricity and it lasts longer. With the money that you save, you can buy more food ingredients.

Judging by how expensive food is, this is a great benefit, especially if you like trying out new recipes and need to buy a variety of ingredients.
