Electric Range with Ceramic Top An electric range offers the convenience of easy installation-it can just be plugged in and ready to use, unlike a gas range. While you can still buy electric ranges with exposed coil burners, many modern electric ranges use radiant heat or halogen heat as a heat source, placing a smooth cooktop surface over the heating elements.

This glass ceramic surface provides a sleek appearance, and is also easy to clean because there are very few crevices for food and dirt to fall into.Electric Range with Coils

Oven Properties: Electric ovens provide a dry heat, as opposed to gas ovens, which can sometimes produce a more humid type of heat. Depending on what you like to bake, you may prefer the dryer heat produced by electric ovens.
