Why Choose Electric Ovens Over Gas?
Your oven is an appliance in your home that you use daily for a long time, so ensuring that you invest in the right one for you is important. The choice is gas or electric? Each does have their benefits and it is hard to crown an overall winner. But this article will explain why we think electric ovens are a solid choice for you.
More-even Oven Temperature
Most electric ovens have fans that help the hot air to move around, this means that they tend to offer more-even heat distribution throughout the oven. Consequently, you should be able to get more consistent results when cooking and baking large batches- although, this means you can’t blame the oven for your baking fails!
In some models, electric ovens allow you to cook using different heating functions at the same time. For example, you are able to use the fan and the grill at the same time, great when you are wanting to cook a thick piece of meat.
Hobs on electric ovens will either be ceramic or induction. Regardless, it means that the cooking surface will be flat. Compared to gas ovens that have burners and the metal pan supports, it makes it much less fiddly and easier to clean electric oven hobs. If you have touch controls, that’s even better!
Now, there is a difference in cooking speed between electric ceramic hobs and electric induction hobs. Induction hobs will give you much quicker cooking times, will heat up the contents of the pan quicker and tend to be much better at simmering at lower temperatures. Ceramic hobs can’t compete with induction, but they are generally quicker than gas hobs.
Most houses are able to accommodate electric ovens as all they require is an outlet. Gas ovens on the other hand, will require a specialist installation and you will need to make sure that your home has a natural gas line running to the kitchen. This also means that the initial cost of your oven will be cheaper with an electric oven, there is no need to pay for expert installation!
Although gas ovens are not particularly dangerous, they do pose more risk compared to electric ovens. Electric ovens do not have open flames and do not release any gases such as nitrogen dioxide. Electric ovens also remove the risk of any gas leaks.
