Propane in Your Home: COOKTOPS/OVENS
Whether you're a master chef preparing a seven course
dinner, or a complete novice trying to burn water; you should be using
on and instant off; propane can instantly go from boil to simmer without
the carryover heat associated with electric ranges. It's no wonder that
ninety-seven percent of professional chefs prefer to cook with gas.
cooking appliances cover a wide spectrum, from low-cost economy models
to deluxe units that combine every imaginable convenience,
efficiency, and cleanliness feature. The wide variety of ranges, ovens,
and cooktops available today can give home owners a choice
of unique and functional kitchen designs. There are freestanding,
slide-in, built-in, and console models with high ovens, or single
ovens; models with waist-high broilers and microwave ovens; self-cleaning
ovens; pilotless top and oven burners; and convection ovens.
energy-savings features (such as pilotless ignition and improved insulation)
are available on propane appliances. These features can reduce gas
consumption by 30-50 percent, further increasing propane's energy
cost advantages over electricity.
