Does anyone use an electric stove by choice?
You know, the stove with the coils as burners. The coils that without a doubt get all wonky, causing your pans to tilt to the side and the food to shift to one side of the pan.
If you do, why do you like it?
I mean, I know you can get used to anything but WHY would you prefer it over a gas range?
We have this apartment in Oregon (I call it the command center) we use while vineyard development is taking place and it’s nice but like most apartments…IT HAS AN ELECTRIC STOVE.
I hate it. It’s not like I cook there often but when I am there for an extended period I cook a lot of meals on that ridiculous piece of equipment. Yes, I cuss that range out.
I even cooked Thanksgiving dinner there. I felt like I was appearing on the Food Network show, Dinner Impossible. It was a challenge to say the least.
For boiling water, an electric stove is truly the greatest. It’s so fast. I’ll give it that. But everything else….pshaw!
It’s impossible to immediately change the temperature. If you start out too hot, everything burns because you can’t turn the temperature down fast enough. When you start out too cold, it takes forever to get anything going. I feel like every burner needs its own heat management staff.
I have no warm fuzzies for the electric stove. I think it blows.
So does anyone really embrace using one? Has anyone ever replaced their gas range with an electric stove? Gasp.
