R3 I don't blame your friend. Bought a house that uses electric for everything and I'm not going to lie, I hate cooking on an electric stove. It's actually made me hate cooking and eating at home. To be fair; it's an old one and I've heard the new conduction tops can make a big difference. I do however think it's interesting that most restaurants and high end chefs seem to use gas. Any culinary professionals that can weigh in?

Side note; I do think it's getting too pushy about going all electric in general. Especially after all those outages from extreme weather. I'm not sure we're ready with people struggling and the lack of initiative overhauling the current infrastructure. Always thought we'd work on it by first redoing how we get electric (windmills, solar, etc), THEN go forward with cars, utilities, etc.

R23 damn that's disappointing to hear, but thanks for sharing. I was hoping it would make difference because there's something about cooking on them that isn't the same. I'm going on 3 yrs of it and still can't wait till spring to use a grill. Of course if there's something out there that shows this is going to be life changing for the world, I'd say suck it up, but I worry it's not that simple when we are so far behind with our electric grids. I think 60% is generated via fossil fuels and we still have plenty of areas where too many using A/C causes issues. I can't imagine if everyone had electric cars, heating, etc all at once.

by Anonymousreply 25January 13, 2023 9:49 PM

Also frustrating that we can't ask questions or have proper debates these days because you got one side (the right) that goes off the deep end about everything. Instead of them having good reasons behind asking questions, right away they spin it as some commie plot to control them. Guess gas companies are paying off "influencers" to come up with all sorts of dumb reasons to be against it ("now the gov wants to tell you how to cook!") No normal responses about expenses, the change to the grid, concern about adding extensive infrastructure for renewable energy, etc. Just them immediately jumping to conspiracies.

Gas stoves are preferred by chefs because of temperature control, or at least that's one reason. They get hot or not immediately. Maybe the new ones are better but my electric stove takes forever to get high heat and then when I want to lower it I have to take the pan off the stove for a minute while the coils cool down. Chefs don't want that time-consuming hassle.

And people still carping about electric are probably still using glass-top electrics and confusing the two. Because if you’ve ever used a new Gaggenau or Miele or even Thermador induction cooktop, you’d know they’re quicker to heat and respond, and more precise than gas.

Also, there are a number of restaurants moving to induction because it makes for a better, cooler kitchen experience and requires less costly ventilation than gas.

An electric oven is more consistent but an electric stove top sucks. As pointed out when you need to lower the heat on the stove it takes a few minutes to lower the temp on an electric stove, but with gas you just turn the flame down. And it's hot as soon as you turn it on.

I can't have gas where I live (too much bedrock made it impossible to run a gas line and I don't want a godawful ugly giant propane tank visible on my property). I hate cooking on an electric stove and the flat top induction range I got a couple of years ago is the worst. The glass top always looks dirty. I would have stuck with the old fashioned coils had anyone warned me.

just had a repairman in for my gas stove (the oven actually) which quit heating up at all. Burners on top working fine. he went away to find replacement igniters for the broiler and oven. It will cost about $400.

it's an old Bosch gas stove, probably about 10 years old --- a quick internet search shows me that a replacement would be north of $2500 for the cheapest model. I will pay the $400 gladly. I cook and bake a lot...would absolutely hate an electric replacement.

I live in a well-populated area, and many surrounding cities and counties have also suffered from the same outages.

And to make sure you don't think it's just here, my relative in New York has had a few power outages since November as well because of weather. We have gas stoves and have been able to cook during those outages.

No, it doesn't take "a few minutes". I have an electric coil stove and the heat is very easily regulatable. I have only had gas in one place I lived (many years ago) and I did like cooking with it (on the stovetop, not the oven) - and of course it does turn down or up immediately, since it's a flame. But I don't miss it, either. Electric is fine, and you adjust to the medod you use (if it's too hot, you take the pan off the burner for 10 seconds, or whatever).

That article has been around for months.

I'm the person with the gas stove in CA. I cook and bake and for cooking, gas is great. The electric coils suck eggs and I've used both extensively during my life. Baking can be a crap shoot depending on if it's heating evening. My friend spent quite a lot for her oven (double oven with convection, beautiful cooktop). I lived with her for about a year and we both baked quite often. I noticed when I made cakes, cookies, muffins, basically anything with a rising agent, one side of the item would raise higher than the other during baking (when item was placed in the middle of the oven) indicating uneven heating. She also had no way to clean a spill that was sandwiched in between the front glass panes without paying a fortune for a repair person.

I have heard great things about the new induction cooktops and would actually love to try them. I guess you'd then have an electric oven? If it came with convection, I'd probably like that. I'd hope the newer induction cooktops would live up their hype though. That said, if you have an extended power outage (which we've had here for days at time, thanks PG&E), you're screwed.

Some of the comments I've seen on Reddit have been pointing out that many modern homes with gas stoves aren't properly ventilated, which also contributes to the problem. I would believe it too, considering how many homes I've been in that have the standard gas stove with a microwave over top of it, and all the fan does is blow the air around, it doesn't suck the fumes out of the house to an external vent of any sort.

Yes, there are some niceties of having a gas range (roasting peppers on them comes to mind), but if I were building a new home for myself I would go with induction. Thus far, two homes in my neighborhood have been completely obliterated due to gas leaks. You can always invest in a good battery backup power supply for your home if you're concerned about power outages.

Obviously restaurants would get hit the hardest with these restrictions, but they are also far better ventilated than the average home, so maybe not.

When the original stopped working they bought another induction because they’d invested so much in cookware for it. I guess they were way ahead of the curve.

by Anonymousreply 119January 14, 2023 5:53 PM

Didn't need to do any investing when I swapped to induction, no special cookware as my pots and pans are stainless steel ones, my aluminium wok and frying pans came with inserts. I've never bothered but you can always buy a steel diffuser if you really wanted to use aluminium/copper cookware.

My town tried to ban gas stoves in 2021 but dropped the initiative when developers threatened lawsuits. The law would have applied to new construction only, existing gas stoves would be grandfathered in.

As a small child we first had a gas stove then when the newfangled electric ones came in with a pull-out shelf of burners and we switched. Mom loved it and stuck with electric when they upgraded again. When I was old enough to buy my own place I chose gas. I'm happy with it and don't see being forced to change to electric any time soon. At this point, I'm not sure I'd care as I'm no chef.

The induction stove tops look easy to clean, but after reading this thread I'm not so sure about that.

I’m not a Trump supporter, but it’s clear there’s a concerted effort to ban these things, since they’re being attacked from all sides in a short period of time (environment and children’s health and risk of explosions). Maybe it’s the right thing to do, as is phasing out gas powered automobiles, but they are nice to cook on and some prefer them. If you don’t have children and are a reasonable adult not prone to accidentally blowing things up it’s probably OK to continue to use one.

From the WSJ:

A sign of the media times is how quickly our leading progressive organs rally to deny that Democrats are doing what Democrats really are doing. A classic example was this week’s flare up in the coming climate war over banning gas stoves.

A Biden appointee on the Consumer Product Safety Commission explicitly threatened to ban gas stoves based on dubious evidence of public-health harm. “This is a hidden hazard,” said commissioner Richard Trumka Jr. “Any option is on the table. Products that can’t be made safe can be banned.”

We and others criticized the idea, and the media response was to rush to blame conservatives for starting it all. “Right’s new fight: Gas stoves,” said Axios, which pushes hard for the climate alarmist agenda. The Washington Post assured its readers that “regulators have no plans to ban gas stoves, but Republicans are slamming the Consumer Product Safety Commission for announcing it will examine the health impacts of the appliances.”

by Anonymousreply 179January 16, 2023 6:02 PM

WSJ continued...

But we didn’t make up Mr. Trumka’s quote. We and others responded to it. After withering public criticism, including by Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, the CPSC Chairman denied any plan to ban, and the White House said President Biden also doesn’t want to ban gas stoves. But that’s cold comfort given that the climate left does want to ban them, and progressive cities and states are doing it.

Progressive cities such as Berkeley, San Francisco and New York City have already banned gas stoves and other appliances in new buildings. New York Gov. Kathy Hochul this week proposed a ban on gas equipment including stoves in new small buildings in 2025 and larger ones in 2028.

Come 2030, New Yorkers won’t be allowed to replace their gas stoves with new ones if they break down. “As you begin making a transition, everyone will have to switch out appliances,” a state official explained. This is how the left’s green-energy “transition” will work for all things. Come 2035, New Yorkers and Californians won’t be able to buy new gasoline-powered cars either.

The Biden Administration is also aiding and abetting the anti-gas stove cause. Last year it filed an amicus brief with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals supporting a gas ban by Berkeley, Calif. The departments of Justice and Energy argued that cities and states should be able to exercise police powers to prohibit the use of “dangerous or unsafe items.” Why would the federal government weigh in on a local regulatory case, if not for ideological climate solidarity?

I'm guessing the coils can be held at a specific temperature for a longer period of time, while a gas oven has to constantly let the heat cool a bit and reignite to heat it up again. I do like a gas range, but hate a gas oven. I've been thinking about getting a dual oven, gas on top, electric at bottom, but unfortunately I'll likely have to hire an electrician to add a breaker for the oven. I live in new "green" construction, and the builder made almost everything natural gas which isn't renewable and isn't particularly green either.

by Anonymousreply 220January 20, 2023 4:14 AM

I have cooked for decades on the old-fashioned electric coil stovetops, and have been able to cook anything on there that can be cooked on a gas stove-top. Techniques are slightly different, but in the end, you have just as much control over temperature on electric as on gas, once you get used to your own particular stove and its calibration. Only wok food is tricky. Usually I resort to an electric wok if I really want to cook Asian style, but many things can be made in an ordinary large fry pan. In particular, grains cook better on electric stovetop, because the simmer is more reliable than turning the gas down to a minimal flame. It's much easier to burn a pan on a gas stove than on an electric one.

by Anonymousreply 221January 20, 2023 10:09 AM

Yes it can cause health issues, like gas heating. That's why you should ventilate after using it. I think banning it is rough. It also seems bad to me especially for Asian cuisine where you need a very intense heat for a very short time. Gas also makes people independent from power outages.

Yes, most proposed legislation I have seen refers to the sale of new stoves after a certain date, not requiring people who already have a gas stove to give up the stove then. It's somewhat analogous to not allowing the sale of gas powered vehicles in California after a certain date. People from the state government are not going to come to your house and take away your current gas powered vehicle.

No, but when you need to buy another vehicle….

I want to convert my fireplace to gas. It will cost about 4k.

Has the time for that already passed?

It'll be okay, R229. You'll be dead by then.

R227, I just converted my fireplace to gas.

I do think, as gas runs out, this will also have to end

By then, companies won’t even be making gas-powered vehicles. Most are going all -electric by the end of the decade

Not going to happen without major improvements in their abilities and major infrastructure renovations.

Think NYC, for example, where they built vertical. Do you think the people on the 17th floor are going to run an extension cord to their car?

R231, no one who lives on the 17th floor parks his car right next to his apartment door

You’re absolutely right, r232. So they have to buy a longer extension cord I suppose, huh?

And if you’re implying that someone who lives on the 17th floor is rich and has their car garaged somewhere, let me introduce you to the Marlboro Houses.

Anyone who lives on the 17th floor parks in garage on the first floor

Yeah, you’re right, r234. But I guess you just glossed right over r233.

People in the projects, er, housing developments, don’t have that luxury.

And even if they did, it goes back to infrastructure changes. Do you think every parking spot has an accessible outlet attached to it?

Your privilege is showing, r234.

Once electric cars are mass marketed, every parking spot will likely have an outlet.

Just like plane seats now all have outlets for charging your phone

“Those of us that are good cooks, you know, people don’t realize electric stoves can’t give you the right setting when you are cooking something,” he declared when asked about the plan by a Post reporter Monday.

Hizzoner admitted he’s even the proud owner of a gas stove himself

“I’m a good cook,” he declared, “and that electric stove just doesn’t cook for me!”

Hochul’s plan would outlaw all gas stoves, hot water heaters and oil furnaces in new residential and commercial construction by 2028 across the Empire State.

The proposal would have to be signed into law either as part of her state budget due April 1 or as a piece of legislation first passed by the legislature then signed by Hochul.

It’s part of the state’s bid to cut down New York’s greenhouse gas emissions, as mandated by a law signed in 2019 by Hochul’s predecessor, now-disgraced Andrew Cuomo.

And the world was going to run out of oil by 1921.
