Going from gas to electric stove--what should I know?

Sarah W-R | Jun 25, 2005 08:55 PM

Okay, after having spent my entire cooking life with a gas stove, I am moving to a new apartment that has an electric stove. Besides the fact that you can't adjust the burner heat level quickly, how will I have to modify my stovetop technique (while, e.g., simmering, sauteeing, searing, etc)? Will an electric burner ever get as hot as a gas burner on full roar? What am I going to hate? Is there anything to love? Someone said that an electric oven is actually preferable to a gas oven; is this true?

Thanks!
