Gas cooking!

Electric cookers consumes a lot of electric power, I prefer gas cookers. It's the common way of cooking here in our country, and easier and faster to cook food. It usually takes less than 30 minutes to prepare 3 meals. You just need to be careful of gas leak though, make sure it's properly closed to avoid an explosion.

Gas cooker for me

I have always had a gas cooker. I have heard that it is better to stick to gas because electric cookers are more costly and not as efficient. Neither one of my gas cookers has let me down over the years, and so I think I will keep going with this option.

60% people of Bangladeshies have Gas Cookers

We have been using Gas cookers for the last 20 years. I am currently 38 years of old. At my small childhood I have been seen that my mum has been doing work with electric cookers. I got shocked also some time by 1000 volt electricity for a second for several times and has been kicked me on some distance. After that we got the gas line from Titas Gas Distribution company Ltd. On that we have been using Gas cookers for the last 20 years and Gas cookers are very much easy and quick process. Bangladesh is a land is full of natural gas up to 500 KM deep on the sea of Bengal.

Thanks Centurion

I use one!

We are still using gas cookers for cooking and I absolutely love it. We had plenty of chances of switching to the electric kind but we just don't want to.

Gas cookers are far more reliable because you can actually somewhat quickly change the volume of the fire and it is, therefore, easier to cook certain meals that are more delicate. On top of that, gas cookers are less expensive compared to the electric. You will see when you look at the monthly bill.

And the best thing? It actually cooks the food much faster. You don't have to wait.

Gas

Where I am living now they don't have a proper electricity grid so it's terrible relying on electric anything. At the moment, ironically I have an electric stove which is pretty great except when you need something done in a haste. Gas cookers have always given me a bit of anxiety since for the past 8 years I've heard quite a few stories of whole families dying because someone left the gas on, truly tragic. Gas cookers are a lot more reliable in a place where electricity isn't a sure thing and you want stuff done fast.

Gas is best

I much prefer cooking on a gas stove over an electrical stove. You have more control over the temperature and it makes cooking easier.

Old fashioned way

I think the gas cookers are more efficient than the electric ones. They may not be the most practical choice, but for sure they are the choices that always offer the most guaranteed results (at least in my point of customer's view).

Gas cookers

In my country, gas stoves are more common and cheaper. In recent years there have been more and more electric stoves in stores, however, they spend a lot of energy. Electricity in my country is very expensive, so it becomes unfeasible.

Traditional is the best

My grandmother, my mom and I had been using gas cookers for years. This is the most traditional way to cook food and saving money too.

Electricity stove consume more power and difficult to control the flames. In addition, it is inconvenient to clean the bottom part of the stove and the ignition burnt out is a common problem.

I can easily control the flame and gas mark with gas stove. Furthermore, I bake , cook, steam and roast food with gas stove at a shorter time.

Gas for me

It is much economical to use gas stoves than electric stoves because of the fact that electric stoves consumes electricity and thus increases our electric bill since we are paying for it. That's why I choose gas stoves than electric stove.

Gas is more common here

My family uses a gas cooker and we've been using it for as long as I can remember. The thing I love with a gas cooker is that you can precisely measure the amount of heat you want, and meals get cooked there easier for me. I've tried an electric stove before and although I gotta admit that it's such a nice invention, I thought the meals there take a bit too long to cook.

What if...?

What if the power went out? Whit a gas cooker you just need a lighter and that's it you can cook, I think that's a great advantage from electric cookers.

Gas is better

I heard that electric cooking is better, I don't understand it why. I prefer the gas cooking because electric is costly, inefficient, and you cannot cook if the power goes out. Natural gas is far cheaper than electricity, this is the most powerful argument I could find!

Gas

I've heard that electric cookers can consume a lot of energy, I had one when I lived alone in a residence that I rented when I was in college, so the owner never let me use my electric one, I had to buy the gas for my old cooker.

Gas Cookers!

I've been cooking with gas since I can remember, it's the best way possible to prepare your meals. I have tried before with electric cooking and the food doesn't taste and cook the same. I always have the feeling is not well cooked, it feels and tastes different than when I cook as I do usually with gas. Not my thing and I would never choose electric cooking over gas cooking.

Optimum Control

There is simply no beating a gas range for the preparation of a decent meal. You have more control with and open flame than you will ever get with a heating element. If I need to adjust heat several times during a complicated dish such as risotto, I need only lift the pot when appropriate. I have access to the fire if I need to burn off alcohol, and I have the extreme high heat necessary for things like stir fry which cannot be done appropriately on most electric tops. It's worth mentioning that in no professional kitchen will you find chefs working with electric stoves.

Gas Cookers

Gas cooker seem more easier to use, plus the fact that the seen to perform more better. Imagine if you have power go off in your neighborhood for some reason, then it means no cooking for you. I use the Gas cooker and will continue to do so for a very long time i guess.

Cooking Gas for me

I have phobia for electricity I find it difficult using a microwave oven not to talk of an electric cooker and another thing is using an electric cooker it burns up gas cost and this increases the power bill. Whenever I use gas cooker I maintain it I usually don't cook much though so I don't get to use up my gas cylinder for months but if it were electric I would be forced to pay even if it don't use it. I prefer gas cooker it cooks meals faster and it's more accurate.

Gas of course

When I was a child my mother used to cook with electricity sometimes and the result was not at all pleasant, that is why I saw that the gas cooker is more functional and is used above the electric because of its reliability.

Results Are Far Superior With Gas

Having moved around a lot and used all kinds of different stoves powered by quite a variety of fuels - if my choice was limited to having to choose between electric or gas - I would for sure always pick the latter.

As apart from the fact that electricity is extremely expensive where I live as well as not very stable with regular power fluctuations and outages occurring almost on a daily basis - I find the cooking experience and more importantly the results to be far superior with gas.

Especially as - not only does the instant heat make cooking much quicker - but as you have better temperature control and food cooks more evenly - which as I do a lot of roasting, pizza making and bake my own bread - is a bonus for me - particularly as out of the two - I have found that gas very definitely excels when it comes to roasting and baking - why I'm not altogether sure but think it may have something to do with the fact - that food cooked in a gas oven retains more moisture than when cooked in an electric oven.

Still effective.

I prefer "gas cookers" mainly because of practicality and efficiency.

This mode has always worked very well for me and I don't intend to change so soon because I don't feel any need for it. So far, it has satisfied all my needs.

Why would I change?

Electric cookers

Electric cookers
Electric cookers ensures a smoke free cooking experience, and the availability of inexpensive brands gives it economical justifications. Electric cookers run on electricity, they convert the power they receive into heat energy, this heat can be released at different levels to get food done. Portability is desirable in most kitchen settings, and when their is limited space within the kitchen, electric cookers could be the perfect solution.

The cookers mostly consists of metal plates and regulators, bigger cookers usually have other functionalities obtainable apart from cooking, it could be roasting, drying and many more, but the basics is just the cooking plates. Electric cookers do not produce naked flames, this is advantageous because the chances of setting this ablaze is highly mitigated.

Depending on the type of electric cooker selected, the heating process could take a while, cookers that take time to heat up also require the same time to get cooled, so both ways this could impact the cooking experience.

The most significant benefit of electric cookers is it's ability to cook without need for refilling, once their is electricity, you are good to go. Electric cookers are highly durable and hardly gets food burnt, because the food receives heat without flames.

Pros
• Pleasurable cooking experience. • Offers heat regulation. • Smoke free cooking. • Highly durable. • No need for refilling.

Cons
• Can cause electric shocks. • Takes time to heat up. • Consumes electric power.

Recent discoveries

I used gas stove for most of my life, but recently I moved to another country where electric ones are most common and I had a blast. Not literally, that would be painful. I had a blast in the sense that I discovered something pretty cool... They are easy to use, they don't smell (and the gas smell is really really bad in my opinion, ugh) and I actually find them a little bit faster but that might be just an impression...

I am afraid of explosion

I'm always afraid that gas stove can cause explosion if I am not careful enough or if there is a malfunction on the equipment. With electric stove, at least the risk is lower. However, I agree that food cooked with real fire can be better for some dishes such as stew but in the long run, I don't want to risk it.

Electric for me because it's safe and simple, but I just don't like Gas cookers because of the fire, the fire that get out to cook the food, might catch someone and leave him dead.

Safer!

I just find gas a very dangerous thing. There has been more than one case of people lighting on the gas and having it explode on their faces. So for me, electricity is the way out. It's also cheaper.

Electric cooker

Although gas cooker is much cheaper to use, I still prefer to have an electric cooker because it's much safer and easier to use and to access. A gas tank is prone for leakage that might cause an explosion and sometimes even there's no problem with the gas tank but you forgot to close the valve and you let the gas stove open, electric appliances or even the light can fuse it to explode. I've seen lots of incidents that happened because of the gas explosion and it's truly deadly.

I couldn't really vote on this topic because I've only ever had electric ranges. I heard that gas ones are much, much more efficient at heating up and the temperatures can go a lot higher than electric ones. I always like watching in movies or cooking shows how the stove makes that "click click click" when you turn the knob on the burner before it ignites.

I remember the stove in our house, we started with an electric stove. It is convenient except when there is a power outage, we have to resort to using charcoal in cooking. When the LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) tanks emerged in the market, the pubilc started to shift to it because of the talks that LPG is more economical. You know housewives, they react instantly when it comes to saving on consumption. Now it is very rare to find an electric stove although there are hybrid gas range which has an electric stove in the set. In our home it is the LPG tank for the gas range.

Because of the facts that meals prepared at home are usually healthier than meals prepared outdoors, I prepare my meals indoors adding all sorts of nutritive ingredients and vegetables on gas cooking stoves. Customarily, I've developed keen interests in cooking indoors at anytime of the day in order to satisfy my desires and ensure never to get carried away by meals prepared at eateries and elsewhere. Occasionally, I cook using the electric cooker. This happens only when I run out of gas.

I don't mind using both. I have found that gas cooking is lot easier once you set it up. I have also used the electric cooker and in some cases the working of the electric cooker are relatively easier. You can just plug the induction and that is more than enough to get things going on. I have found that there are some people who make use of the cooker and they are doing it just fine with that as well.

I prefer to cook with a Gas cooker over an electric cook because it is easier to maintain. The electric cooker is really good at sky rocketing your electricity bills so i stay away from it. All you require to maintain the gas cooker is just to refill it when you are out of gas and you are back to your cooking.

Since I was a kid, I'm used to see our kitchen using gas stove as our source of heat in cooking. I am actually hoping that I could change that is additional expenses. With the newest electric stove, consumption of energy is much lesser and heat distribution on your cooking ware is more even. Making your cooking time slashed in a good amount of time.

I'm definitely going to have to go with gas cookers on this one. They are just much more efficient than electric cookers if the power goes out. Gas cookers are also much more cheaper than electric cookers because they consume less energy.

I will go with electric cooker. My honme country imports fossil fuel, however, produces electricity from water. Hydro electricity is renewal energy and gas is a fossil fuel. I prefer green energy. By using electricity to cook, I will not only cut dependency on fossil fuel but alos save environment. When I am not using gas, I will also cut my country's spending on importing gas.

I think this decision will depend a lot on each country. In some countries the gas stove is more economical, since in other countries the model of electric stove becomes more viable. In my country the best option is still the gas stove.

I can't really compare, as I haven't really use the electric cooker before, though my mom and sister have already been using them at their home, I still use the traditional gas cooker. The electric cooker seems to be slower, or perhaps I am just not used to it yet. I am not sure if I will invest in electric cooker soon, as it's more expensive.

Had it not been that electricity here in the Philippines is expensive, I would actually choose an electric cooker over gas cookers. That's the only reason why here in the Philippines, people are more into gas cooking, since it's cheaper. Given all you Pros I am really for an electric cooker. However again, since our country is typhoon-prone, which when it hits the place would mean that the electricity will be down for days until all fallen electric posts has been restored. SO, if we have electric cooker we will not be able to cook for days because we have no electricity for our electric cooker.

In my country electricity cost is pretty high when compared to that of the gas fuel. Using electric cookware means a big hole in your pocket. So most of us here are comfortable with gas cookware only although the cooking time is more.

I prefer the gas stove although I haven't used an electric cooker, stove, oven or grill but I do have electric rice cooker as its much convenient to cook although I think most of us can afford it now rather than cooking the rice on a gas stove. Whenever I cook rice on the gas stove, I always tend to forget it there and got really burnt from yellow to blackish whenever I forgot to lower the heat after the water subsides. The good thing is my girlfriend won a rice cooker on our Christmas party raffle draw and I won a desktop fan so we switch it so that I can cook on the rice cooker instead.
