Gas vs Electric Appliances?

Discussion in 'useless chatter' started by smileynev, Oct 7, 2004.

  1. Specifically ranges, what are the pros and cons of going with each fuel source?
  2. well for cooking , gas = instant on electric = turn it on and wait 15 minutes for it to heat up
    Dunno about the cost efficiencys of each tho
  3. Gas usually is a little less, and it cooks nicer. Electric is more expensive to maintain if shit goes wrong, but you don't have to worry about that pesky "pilot light going out and shooting natural gas into a room" thing.
  4. Gas is also great in a power outage.

    Electric, if you have a flat surface, is easier to clean.
  5. I grew up with electric. Gas scares me.
  6. No, but the kitchen would look funny if there were no range in it.
  7. How the hell does a welfare family like your have the money to build a new house?
  8. Gas is way better.
  9. But it's great when you want to move and the house isn't selling.
  10. government checks/cheese ++
  11. You're usually more wordy
  12. I grew up with gas, electric scares me.

    Though we have a flat top electric now.
  13. Not if you've never cooked on it... :fly:
  14. Oh wait, we're talking about stoves?

    Just get a George Foreman Grill.
  15. hay I have gas right now
  16. I had some bad gas last night. Finally I got up and took a big dump, then I felt great.
  17. Or just use a coleman camp stove.
  18. Foreman > Coleman

    It knocks out the fat! (It really does, it's kind of gross cleaning out the grease catchers)
  19. Yar, we have one of those too. Great for pork chops.
