What are the differences between an electric and a propane stove?


Answer by  PooBear (341)

Propane is piped gas, electricity is wired. Propane cooks hotter, faster and there is more control than with electricity. Electric cooking is cleaner, no residue in the air, but the control has to be learned by experience with each stove. Lots of places won't let you have propane for your applicances.

Obviously, electric and propane stoves use different energy sources. Usually, this means that a propane stove costs less to operate. Energy costs for stoves are not too high, however. From a practical standpoint, propane stoves are better for cooking. They heat more evenly and chefs prefer them. If they break, however, they are more costly to fix.

propane stoves create an actual flame while electric burners are on coils that ehat up and turn red. tyhey both have advantadges electric are easy to maintain but take a while to heat and arent consistent heat. propane is better-direct flame with even heat. You have to pay for the propane though of course.
