Gas stoves & power outages

E_M | Feb 9, 2010 05:13 AM

So in the wake of (and anticipation of) the snow storms, we are bemoaning our electric stovetop, if only for the fact that, in a power outage, we won't be able to cook. While we love gas much better than electric, we also love the fact that it is not dependent upon electricity.

Many people on this board like induction over gas; however, induction can't be lit with a match. Does any other chowhound prefer gas over induction because of this?
