Electric Ranges....Basics

Yesterday's post was gas ranges....seems only fitting we should cover electric. As a FYI, Boston is 65% gas 35% electric. As I have posted previously in the appliance industry, a better range really is about features.

Electric is a little different than gas, because of the advent of induction (magnetic heat).

So what is the difference between this,

and this for $800 more

and this for $2000 more

1. Fifth burner

2. Convection...Fan forced heat for a more even heat

3. Induction. Faster heat, better simmer, 35% more efficient, less required venting, virtually child safe

4. Second oven instead of storage
