I grew up cooking on a gas top

FitnessSpecialist :

I can tell you immediately the first benefit is being able to cook with gas in the event of a power outage

FitnessSpecialist :

The second thing is things stay considerably cooler in the kitchen, because of the lack of conduction of the flame to the surrounding pieces, compared to that of the tungsten coilks

FitnessSpecialist :

coils*

FitnessSpecialist :

the stove itself is considerably cooler, and thus the room stays much cooler

FitnessSpecialist :

The other thing is, if you think of your car's motor, once all that metal is hot, when the car is shut off, the engine stays HOT for a long time
