When people think about cooking with gas indoors, some suggest it leads to poor air quality. It’s not the source that’s the problem. It’s what they’re cooking. Most often people use the wrong oil and cook at the wrong temperature. Chef Dean
Cooking is always going to affect indoor air quality. But the energy source is less of a factor than what you’re cooking and how you’re cooking it. Most often people use the wrong oil and cook at the wrong temperature, which can create smoke and particulate matter. Chef Dean
The Truth about Propane Cooking and Air Quality
The act of cooking itself reduces indoor air quality—regardless of whether the stove is powered by propane, natural gas, electricity, or wood. The type of food being cooked and the cooking method will always have the most impact on indoor air quality. Following best cooking practices helps to ensure that safety and indoor air quality is being maintained—without sacrificing the meals you love.
