Range: Gas or Dual Fuel?

Hi Kurt here, Yale resident Chef.

One of the top questions that people ask is if a gas oven is better than an electric oven?

When selecting a gas range, your options are: all gas or a combination electric oven with gas stove top (Duel Fuel).

To answer the question I may come across as a politician and put it back on the purchaser. The better option depends on your style of cooking. If you like the control of the stove top, the searing from the broiler and occasionally bake you may want to stick to all gas.

If you like to bake and are interested in True Convection in which allow cooking with several pans at the same time, Dual Fuel maybe the better way to go.
Dual fuel does not have to super expensive with a price point starting at $1500

I am at Yale full time to teach you about convection and cooking in general. Let me know if you have any questions.

Here are a couple examples:

Frigidare PLCS389EC
Frigidaire Dual-Fuel

Wolf DF484F
Wolf Dual-Fuel
