Gas vs. Electric

What type of cooktop do you use: gas or electric?

Chef Matthews: I like gas the best; I feel it gives me the most control, and I can use any old pot I have.

Chef Vizethann: Right now I have an electric stove. But gas is a little better because you get a direct flame. With gas, you can turn down the flame and your pan will get much cooler. But with an electric burner, even when you turn down the heat, it takes a while for it to actually cool down because the top is still hot.

Verdict: All our chefs preferred gas, even the one who currently wasn’t using it.
