Which is Right For You? Dual Fuel Vs Gas Cookers
The type of cooker you have installed in your kitchen should reflect how you use the appliance. In the latest blog post by Cooker Solutions, we take a look at dual fuel vs gas cookers to help you work out which is best for your kitchen.
Gas ranges heat the cooker top and the oven with gas, whereas dual fuel ranges heat the oven with electricity and the hob with gas.
Gas cooktops give a clear visual indication of how much heat the hob is producing, helping you to gauge the setting you should be using much more clearly, which is why these types of appliances have gained popularity over the years.
In addition to this, gas hobs are very efficient as the gas is turned directly into heat. On the other hand, there is some energy loss when converting electricity to heat.
Electric ovens tend to provide more even and consistent results when it comes to baking, meaning that you can guarantee that if you set your oven to cook your food at a certain temperature, it will heat up to that point.
Which is Right for Your Home?
Both types of oven are sufficient for use in your home and if you don’t bake, a gas range may have a slight advantage over a dual fuel range.
A gas range will require a gas line in your home, whilst a dual fuel appliance will require a gas line and a 208/240-volt power line with at least 30 amps. However, it is always necessary to ensure you read the manufacturer’s specifications to ensure you have enough power running through your house to support the appliance safely.
