what kind of space are you in? I am going to put a licensed kitchen in my basement in the (hopefully near) future. The health inspector said I should go with electric because otherwise I would need to get a hood.

I guess I don't know what would save more money. But if you already have hook up for one or the other, I would probably go with that unless like in my case electric is the way to go.

i went electric because of the vent hood...the building inspector said it would cost about 5 thousand dollars to install one.

I don't have a commercial oven, but man, I couldn't have an electric one. We had one once and I HATED it.

So I guess my advice would be to go with which one you work best with.

And yeah, I'd pay the extra $$ for having a gas stove.
