An overwhelming majority — 96 percent — of professional chefs prefer cooking with gas. After discovering its benefits, you will, too.

From starter homes to high-end custom projects, propane-powered cooking equipment provides convenience, sharp design, precision, and reliability for homebuyers and homeowners wanting optimum performance at a reasonable cost.

Here’s three reasons to consider implementing propane into your kitchen:

Unique performance features of propane cooking equipment.

Precise temperature control, more even levels of heat, and instant on/off capabilities are a few features making propane ranges, cooktops, and ovens a valuable addition to any kitchen.

Instant-on burners allow cooking to start right away. Instant-off, on the other hand, quickly cools down the cooktop to prevent overcooking. This capability also provides a safety feature not found in electric cooktops, which can remain dangerously hot for a few minutes after being turned off.

Reduced annual energy costs.

Propane ranges, ovens, and other cooking appliances will have wide variations in energy use and costs depending primarily on frequency of use. A general annual estimate for propane use in the kitchen is 40 to 60 gallons per year, or roughly $80 to $120 per year.

A significant impact to a home’s carbon footprint.

Propane cooking — based on typical cooking usage levels and the emissions which electricity generation creates — results in roughly 30 percent fewer carbon emissions.
