Gas or electric


Selling in-laws estate, had to remodel kitchen as aresult of broken pipe and water damage. My wife and I have two different opinions, wanted yours.....


First, Gas and electric exist in Kitchen


One wants electric stove (220V) because cost of unit is cheaper


One wants Gas Stove (12v)


Thoughts?

Re: Gas or electric


My wife was raised with electric but has used gas for the past 50 + years and I believe she would choose gas if given the choice.

One caveat though. An AC power outage prevents gas stove benefits -- on certain units -- if 12V, as you mentioned, is required. We were not aware of this on our purchase but we have dealt with that quirk over the years. No biggie for us but just wanted readers to be aware of what we weren't aware of.

Re: Gas or electric


Since you are selling I'd go with whichever option is easier. Is there a gas line nearby? 220? which is easier for you to set up?


Personally I prefer gas but where I live that isn't a good option. My wife has never used a gas stove and is happy with electric.

As Mark notes ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Do you have gas/electric behind the stove.

If so, GOOD.

As to saleability, we've found no discernible advantage as to having one or the other installed in general. Some like electric, some gas.... anybodys guess.

So I would install the less expensive electric BUT.....

if you have both available behind the stove, I would definitely advertise it with a placard on the stove explaining gas is available.

There are cooks that do demand gas, and knowing it is readily available is a selling point.

Re: Gas or electric


Honestly. If I were selling I would print out a picture of each that you are willing to pay for and make it buyer's choice.


Now for my personal opinions:

Electric is cleaner. Gas yellows paint.
A gas cook top is instant on / off for heat.
The ovens are are a toss up.

Gas.

Unless "electric" includes induction, in which case the "cheaper"ness of electric goes out the window.
