Default Gas vs. electric appliances

Another question

Is it more economical to go for gas appliances instead of electrical? Does anybody know of a good source of information about this?

We went with Dual Fuel.

This means Gas stove and Electric oven. We picked this because Gas ovens do not heat as evenly as electric ovens.

Is it cheaper to operate the stove with Gas? Or that was not a factor in your decision?

Default Induction stoves

I'm exploring rhe possibility of using an induction stove. It's more efficient than gas and electric, and quicker too. It gives your counter a clean and sleek look. Here is a link:

This was not a factor in our decision. We talked to some professional chefs, this is what they recommended to us.

In the last round of consumer reports testing of stoves and ovens, they didn't recommend induction.

i was talking to a friend last week and he feels that gas and electric are almost the same in cost per year. it sounds that it is more what you want now and not cheaper to operate.
