Gas Range

Many hard to please cooks find their ultimate cooking satisfaction when cooking on a gas range. Even though cooking with gas may seem like the old fashioned way to cook, it is really the most efficient way to cook. Although some may disagree with that statement because they prefer electric ranges, gas range cooking is still by far the most popular choice for cooks who know what it is like to cook food to perfection.

The reason for the popularity of gas range cooking amongst some of the best cooks in the world is the fact that you can adjust the heat level more efficiently. Baking the perfect loaf of bread or a delicious pie is an almost guaranteed success in a gas range. Gas range cooking may be expensive, but having more control over what heat level food is being cooked at is worth the extra cost for most cooks. Adjusting the flame is easier to control now than in times past and keeping food at a low simmer is not hard to do. Turn the flame up and you have added instant heat, unlike an electric range that can only have the heated adjustments made slowly.

Even though there are plenty of gourmet cooks that prefer a gas range over an electric range, there are not that many manufacturers of them. Gas ranges at one time provided an uneven heat that made them unpopular and drove up the purchases of electric ranges. Nowadays new design modifications in gas ranges have been added so that most models now have a fan that makes the heat distribution more efficient.

Gas ranges are sold in many different sizes and colors. You can buy a gas range that is either a built in unit or a freestanding range. A new gas range will typically have sealed burners that can make clean ups very fast and easy. Digital control panels also add to easy clean up. When food is boiled over or spilled on the sealed burners, the burners will not clog up like they used to do.

Before you go out and buy a new gas range, decide exactly what it is that you want your range to do. If you do a lot of cooking, you should get a gas range with a double oven. If you cook very little, a single oven range is adequate. You can shop for a gas range that has a self-cleaning oven, that offers duel fuel capabilities or touch pad controls. If you do a lot of baking, you should look for a gas range that has a convection oven or even simmer burners. There are various options to choose from. Whatever you do, look for a gas range that will be compatible with the size of your pots and pans unless you plan on buying a new set. Having a gas range with huge burners will not work well for you if your pots and pans are not large and vice versa.

If you are in the market to upgrade your kitchen in preparation to easily sell your house, adding a gas range will give you great value for your investment. Adding new appliance will that will stay with the home is always a selling point. If you are remodeling or just need a new gas range, you will find all the major brands available online. Purchasing the best quality gas range is worth the extra money that you may have to pay. In the long run, you will be happier with the way it cooks. KitchenAid, Whirlpool, GE, and Amana are a few companies that sell quality gas ranges.
