I have seen different cooking methods as my grandmother used cooking coal and firewood. My mother used gas for cooking food. And now we have gas back in my country besides an induction cook-top. At my present location we have choice of a gas range as well electric range and can chose either. I am used to gas though so preferred renting a house with gas connection. By the way we have electric for water heating system, AC and dish washing and gas for oven and cooking. Please share what you prefer personally a gas or electric, and which one you find cheaper?
