Electric gas stove or oven | Benefits and Problems

Electric gas stove or oven | Benefits and Problems

In our previous article we looked at the electric stove, how it works, its benefits and some of its associated problems. The electric stove like its name suggests uses electricity ONLY. But it’s a widely known fact that a gas stove cook top is more efficient than its electrical counterpart where as an electric oven is more efficient over a gas oven.

This dilemma necessitated the birth of a dual fuel range which uses an electric oven and a gas cook top combining the best of both worlds. This is the infamous dual fuel, electric gas stove

In this article we are going to look at everything about the electric gas stove, from how it works, its benefits and problems encountered when using it.

WHAT IS AN ELECTIC GAS STOVE?

Dual fuel stoves or electric gas stoves are ranges that feature a gas cook top and an electric oven. Gas cook tops offer quick heating and ample temperature control. Electric oven elements cycle in patterns that allow for optimal management of temperatures, making them ideal for baking.

We shall not discuss much on the components of an electric gas stove in this article since we already did an in-depth anatomy of both the electrical and gas stoves as standalone units. In this article we shall focus on the benefits and problems associated with using the electric gas stove.

BENEFITS OF AN ELECTRIC GAS STOVE

There are many perks that you come with having gas range stove with an electric oven. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of using an electric gas stove.

1. ELECTRIC OVENS OFFER CONSISTENT HEAT

Here’s what happens. When you are baking your dish at, say, 400-degrees, an electric oven will remain right around the 400-degree temperature. With a gas oven, things are a slightly different story. See, with gas, the heat comes from the flame. As your oven gets too hot, the flame will have to go out. Then, as the temperature drops, the flame must re-light and begin heating the oven. This entire process leads to a great amount of fluctuation in temperatures which can, ultimately, affect the outcome of your baking.

2. GAS COOK TOPS ARE MORE EFFICIENT

Whether you are sautéing, boiling, or frying, you will find that you will get it done quickly with a gas cook top. The heat comes from the flame, so as soon as you turn on the burner, you are cooking. No need to wait for the burner to heat up. This saves you both time, energy, and can, as a result, money.

3. GAS STOVES PROVIDE PRECISE TEMPERATURE CONTROL

Whether you are trying to get something to boil or hot enough for frying, or you just need to warm some soup, a gas stove allows you that ability. You don’t have to worry about your burner having to take time to heat up or cool down. Whatever temperature you are looking for, it is all in the flame. Turn it higher or lower and your flame will follow. You are in control.

4. NO OVER COOKING

When you are cooking on the stove and you are done, you simply turn the burner off. However, if you are cooking on an electric stove, you will find that the burner is still hot. And this residual heat, can take your food from done to well-done or even charred. This is not the case with a gas stove, though. Again, the heat comes from the flame. So, when you turn off the burner, the flame goes out and the cooking stops.

5. VALUE ADDITION

Dual fuel ranges are not the most common range found in homes. Because of their added value and more advanced features, they tend to initially be slightly higher in price. However, this premium and professional range will definitely add value to your home, making it a wise investment.

6. REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT

When you choose a dual fuel range for your kitchen, you are taking a step in the green direction. By using gas to fuel the stove, you are getting just the right amount of heat needed to cook your food – with no residual heat. In the electric oven, your temperature will maintain itself which means you will no longer need to open and turn your food for even baking. Both of these will keep the heat emitted from the range to a minimum. How does this help reduce your footprint? This means that your cooling system in your home will not have to work as hard to maintain a cool temperature in your kitchen space and throughout your home. All in all, you are saving energy.

7. NO UNDER BAKING

Baking in an oven that is fueled by gas can leave you with a cake, for instance, done with perfection on one side while still gooey on another. Constantly monitoring the baking and turning the cake throughout its baking time can leave you with a cake baked more evenly throughout. But, let’s be honest, who really has time to micro-manage the oven? With an electric oven, you won’t ever have to worry about whether or not you have even heat throughout. The method in which electric ovens work allows for a much more regulated temperature allowing your cake to bake with perfection – while you take care of other important tasks. No oven micro-managing here!

8. DURABLE

It is chefs, bakers, and other kitchen professionals who will be the first to tell you about the benefits of having a gas stove and an electric oven. And, these individuals know the benefits first-hand because they are alwaysusing the range. For this reason, dual fuel ranges must be built with a stronger, more durable craftsmanship. They are designed to handle heavy cooking for extended periods of time. And, they are built to last. From the stainless-steel outside to the cast iron grates on top of the stove and the porcelain interior of the oven – all parts of a dual fuel range are meant to stand strong no matter how much you use it.

9. STAINLESS STEL FINISH

If you are adding a new stainless-steel dual fuel range to your kitchen, you should pat yourself on the back. Choosing stainless steel is a wise decision. Not only does it look nice, with a bright shine and a sense of elegance, but it also will fit with any style. So, as your design tastes change, your professional range will still fit. It is truly timeless.

The dual fuel range has many advantages since it combines the best of both worlds and if you used with care will last the test of time. Like any other household appliance however it requires service and maintenance once in a while and has very common problems and tell-tale signs that something is amiss.

Let’s take a look at some of the problems which come with using the dual range over time.

6 COMMON ELECTRICAL GAS STOVE PROBLEMS

GAS BURNER WON’T LIGHT

If the flame won’t light on your gas cook top, there could be a few things going wrong. First, make note of what happens when you try to light the burner. Normally, you should hear a clicking noise and be able to smell gas coming out of the valves. If you hear the click but don’t smell anything, the problem is likely with the gas flow. If you smell gas but don’t hear any clicking, the issue could lie with the ignition switch.

If your DIY attempt to fix the fault is not successful then contact the specialists to come and take a look. In the Gauteng province you can contact Isocool pty Ltd for all gas stove repairs.

GAS BURNER HEATING SLOWLY.

A slow-heating cook top can become a major issue no matter what type of cook top you have. For a gas cook top, this issue could be due to the burner openings being clogged with debris, leaving the flames small and weak. This can be pretty easily fixed by giving your whole stove top a thorough clean.

If your DIY attempt to fix the fault is not successful then contact the specialists to come and take a look. In the Gauteng province you can contact Isocool pty Ltd for all gas stove repairs.

BLOWN OVEN THERMAL FUSE

If the oven gets too hot, some electric models might blow a thermal fuse. This will cause power to the oven being shut hence the oven not working.

You can call Isocool pty Ltd technicians (0789222884) to come and test the fuse for continuity and conduct other diagnostics if you are in the Gauteng province.

DEFECTIVE OVEN THERMOSTAT SENSOR

Depending on the model, the oven may have a thermostat or an oven control board that works with an oven sensor. The thermostat or sensor monitors the oven temperature. When the oven reaches the desired temperature the oven control board shuts the voltage to the element. This cycle repeats itself throughout the cooking process to maintain proper temperature.

However, if the sensor or thermostat is faulty, the oven may not turn on at all.

You can call Isocool pty Ltd technicians to come and test the sensor’s resistance and conduct other diagnostics if you are in the Gauteng province.

OVEN DOOR WON’T SHUT OR OPEN

If the oven door doesn’t stay shut, you may need to replace the hinge. This requires disassembling the door and possibly removing the side panel as well. If you need help, call an appliance repair technician for assistance.

    Ultimately, choosing between an electric and gas stove depends on your cooking needs, preferences, and safety concerns. Some even opt for hybrid stoves that combine both electric and gas elements to enjoy the benefits of both types of cooking. It’s a good idea to consult with experts and consider your specific cooking habits and kitchen setup when making a decision.
