I am needing a new over(non comercial) does it matter if its a gas or electric oven? I currently have a gas oven at home but Im curious about an electric one for my loft. Does anyone know if the baking is different with the oven being electric or gas?
Thank you for reading
I'm no expert, but we just moved into an apartment that has an electric oven, after using a gas one all my life and I hate it!
The oven itself has to be set 25 degrees lower because otherwise it burns everything! Let's just say the first cheesecake I baked in it, I threw away!
I hope this helps you decide. Sorry I couldn't be more positive.
Most people who have had gas say that they will never go back to eletric.
If you have used and liked a gas oven I'd suggest you stay with what you're familiar with. If it's working well for you why switch. I've has a gas range and oven for 34 years and wouldn't want to have to go to electric. I've had occassion to go down thr road and use my dd's oven to bake a cake. It baked okay but sure makes me appreciate my familiar gas oven.
I currently have an electric oven......and I hate it! I use my Mom's gas one on occassion and like it much better, however, my house does not have gas. As kathys90 stated, I also have to set my oven 25 degrees lower than what the recipe calls for.
Go with what you feel comfortable with. I have both: an electric convection wall oven and a gas oven range. I typically use the wall unit for my cakes and my gas range for my yeast breads. Love them both.
i grew up with gas oven and have had to use electric for the past 10yrs (our street doesnt have gas) and i want a gas oven desperately
but in saying that, i know 2 chefs and they love and prefer electric ovens - they say they can control the tempreture better
Thank you all for your wonderful responses. The reason why I am aiming for a electric oven is because well first of all I am hardly ever home, and I am always staying at my place of business (it has a loft) and (for instance) It was my step sons birthday yesterday and I had to drive an hour home just to bake the cake.
I love my gas oven but I dont have a gas connection here at my business (not cake business) So I wanted to put an elecrical stove in my loft that way I wouldn't have to spend more money to make the proper adjustments to install a gas one. (Im remodeling the bathroom in my loft and dont want to spend more $$$)
Anyhow well I am definately going to have to think about it. I really appreciate all of your input.
