propane range/oven or gas range/electric oven?


I told myself when i build or buy a house i will have a gas range. I live in my RV on my property and hate cooing when I visit parents..eggs should only take 2 minutes to cook! The only thing I do notice is that gas ovens are hard to keep even heat. I an not setup for natural gas but have a big propane tank that hopefully can be used..its old. if not, cooking doenst use much propane anyway. Any opinions from those wiht gas stoves? remember propane dies burn hotter thats why youneed a converter or a propane appliance. I am trying to finish my plans. it would be much simpler to have a all inone unit, but rather do it right first time. Hopefully I can find a range that doesnt need electric like alot of these damn new ones

Wife and I are about to put in a propane stove/oven. Never seen one that used propane on the range and electric in the oven.

I do 99% of the cooking using cast iron. My favorite is a Mr B-B-Q wok I got online and use it for nearly everything plus we can a lot so propane/NG is the only way to go.

Well I dont know if thier are propane ranges separate(for home use) but I do know that electric oven you build into the cabinets have been around for years. Two thinks withthe oven: 1 withRV at least thye are not as even heat as electric. 2: They use more propane which means exhaust/fresh air needing sucked in/out of house for extended time. I odnt know if new codes make it to where when your range turns on the fan automatically does..have no idea. but if not now surely later wiht the new carbon monixide "danger" Either way I will get gas range. I dont see how anyone could go back once they used it. I actually find it quite hilarious in our world of technology how everything went to quick and convenient yet they made electric ranges which slowed down cooking from the 1900s gas stoves. Who needs a microwave when you got gas

Yeah, try smoking a turkey in a Nuker or doing a spivy lobster stir-fry. Plus NONE of my cast iron will fit the Nuker...

Electric ovens
