Natural Gas for Cooking

Just as most professional chefs insist on cooking with natural gas, everyday cooks recognize that natural gas offers even heat, excellent temperature control and instant on/off setting for cooking and baking.

Today's natural gas ranges, ovens, cooktops and grills feature high efficiency, easy cleaning and the reliability that natural gas equipment is known for.

Benefits of Natural Gas

Cooking with natural gas is economical - it costs about half as much to cook with a natural gas range as with a similar electric range.

With a natural gas oven, food cooks faster at temperatures 25 to 50 degrees lower than a conventional oven.

Many of the new models of natural gas cooking equipment use an electronic spark ignition, rather than a continuously burning pilot. This saves as much as 30% on energy costs.

A natural gas range gives you better heat control and instant on/off. Today's natural gas range offers infrared oven broilers that cook food faster, use less energy and reduce food shrinkage.
