The Advantages of Cooking on a Gas Stove

IMG 20190930 WA0010 - The Advantages of Cooking on a Gas Stove

Gas cooking is no longer something that is found rarely in your neighborhood but in fact a product that is becoming a must. Gas pricing, stability and availability has pushed more and more consumers to convert and join the world of gas cooking.

The main benefit of a gas cooktop is that it gives you total control over the heat. That means you don’t have to wait for the element to warm up, and you can adjust the temperature instantly, which many cooks prefer for dishes.

Other advantages of cooking with gas:

  • Instant heat and accurate cooking temperatures that allow you to use high heat for stir-frying and immediately follow with low heat for gentle simmering.
  • The even heat distribution offered by a centralised gas flame can help reduce scorching.
  • Gas burners have relatively low heat emissions as the gas flame immediately disappears when turned off.
  • You can use any type of pot or pan on a gas cooktop.

You do not need special pans when cooking on a 5 burner gas stove. Each pan is in principle suitable for cooking on a gas stove. We recommend cooking with cast iron pans, because they distribute the heat well and retain an equal temperature for a long time.

Would you not prefer to have better flavouring to your food? Well, one of the great things about cooking in a gas oven is that flavours are often better preserved due to the fact that the oven allows for a small amount of water vapour. It also helps to reduce the likelihood that food will dry out.

One of the biggest advantages of using gas is that it does not use electricity. One of the advantages of a gas stove over other variants such as an induction cook top is that it does not use any electricity. The end result is that you do not have to be worried about your electricity bills going up more.
