The oven in one's cooking range is an important part of the kitchen as it helps one whip up everyday meals and baked desserts for the family.

Gas vs. electric: Which oven is right for you? 1

Choosing between having a gas or electric oven is usually a matter of preference.

While one isn't necessarily better than the other, there are many factors to consider before deciding to buy which oven is best for you.

Cooking Quality

Gas ovens provide a slightly moister heat (as water vapor is produced as it burns) while electric ovens tend to produce drier heat. 

A humid cooking environment is preferable for baking pies as they are less likely to become dry and hard, but not so if one is more into making cookies.

Cooking Temperature

Because it doesn't depend on gas ignition as its source of heat, electric ovens generally maintain an even temperature throughout the cooking process. 

However, gas burns hotter and any adjustments made in temperature are faster with a gas oven and can be controlled more accurately.

Cooking Ease 

Gas ovens are known to have hot spots so pans need to be rotated while cooking to prevent burning. 

On the other hand, electric ovens will require having to wait a few minutes longer to preheat. Also, in the event of a power outage, an electric oven will not work. 

There are a whole lot of other things to consider when choosing the perfect oven, and picking the right one can be quite difficult considering the huge number of choices available in the market today.

So whether gas or electric, it all boils down to having a reliable kitchen partner.
