Gas, Electric or "Mixtes"?

Greetings from Paris!

I need to buy a stove and luckily have the option of either gas or electric. At first I thought of course gas all the way. But now I've started shopping around and it seems that a "cuisineres mixtes" is a third option - with 3 gas burners, 1 electric burner and an electric oven.

The salesmen tell me that an electric oven is much safer and faster to heat than gas. OK - but how well do they work? I'm not crazy cooking on electric burners - but I do like the timer option - and have never used an electric oven.

And I'm talking about a regular little home stove! Not pro - not La Cornue! I'm talking Darty here - where Parisians buy their appliances - see link below.

Personal opinions please! Gas, electric ou mixtes - s'il vous plait!
