Propane’s superiority to electricity for cooking

You can quickly change the settings on a propane stove. The burners on electric stoves take longer to heat up or cool down. That time can make the difference between a perfectly cooked chicken breast and one that’s dry and stringy.

Propane allows you greater control over the heat. Electric cooktops have set temperatures that cannot be altered. Propane allows you to customize your heat settings to anywhere between low and high, depending on the food you’re cooking.

Propane stoves distribute heat more evenly than electric stoves. You’re less likely to scorch delicate foods like sauces or fish because the heat is distributed better.

Many of today’s propane stoves have longer center burners that enable you to use griddles or grill pans and achieve even heating throughout them, as opposed to the uneven heating you get when using two smaller burners.It makes cooking everything from Sunday pancakes to weeknight burgers easy. Propane stoves also offer features like sealed burners for easier cleaning.

Propane cooking tips

Watch the burner’s flame color. If your propane range’s flame is yellow rather than blue, it is using energy inefficiently and requires professional attention.

Keep the burner flame as low as possible. A higher flame on your gas range won’t necessarily cook your food faster, but it definitely will use more propane. Modern cookware is highly conductive and maintains heat effectively. You don’t always need as much flame as you think.

Use the right-sized burner for your pot or pan. Putting a small pot or pan on a large burner may end up wasting 40% of the burner’s heat. For greater efficiency and better results, match the burner to the pan.
