With a natural gas stove, you have the luxury of instant heat control. If you turn down the heat on a pot of boiling water, it will immediately stop boiling. If you turn up the heat, the water quickly comes back up to a boil. This isn’t the case with electric elements, where there’s a lag time between adjusting the dial and a change of heat being applied to your pan. Modern gas stoves are also very efficient, with electric starter systems instead of wasteful always-on pilot lights. Gas ranges are available in a wide range of styles and price points for home kitchens, making them not just a luxury but an affordable luxury. If you already have a gas line running to your house for heating, running a line to the kitchen is the next logical step. Cost of operation is typically lower than with an electric stove, making gas an economical choice for families who love to cook. And when you decide to put your home on the market, a natural gas range is a premium selling feature.
For a chef, using natural gas as a heat source is all about control. Turn on the burner, and there’s instant heat. Once it’s on, the degree of precision is excellent. The temperature can go from full flame to a delicate simmer with a flick of the dial. Dual stacked burners take this a step further, with tiny flames producing a very gentle heat that’s ideal for precise tasks. With that level of control, you can melt chocolate in a pot directly over the burner instead of having to use a double-boiler. Heat control is fundamentally important to cooking, and home cooks or aspiring chefs want and need that control to be able to perfectly transform their ingredients into something worthy of serving to their family and friends.
