Definitely gas. It pains me to see so many new apartment refurbs with electric hobs. I guess they are so much cheaper and to install en masse.

Yes, I would have gas cookers everytime. more controllable and more reliable. That's why in most commercial environments gas ovens and burners are used. If you're worried about the economics of it buy a plug in electric 'slow cooker' (around 20) for those one pot meals!

How much would it cost to tranfer from gas to electric?

thanks
I like to prefer gas cooker, Coz Electric cooker is so risky. yes, Electric cooker is much better than Gas cooker, but safety first.

I will always prefer a gas heater as compared to an electric one.I find it easy to cook at a gas heater and its more environment friendly also.I think that cost is also lesser if we take into consideration the benefits of gas heater.

I have a gas hob and electric oven. It depends how you use it. If you are a fantastic cook, like to cook and do a lot of cooking then I would say go for gas because it is more controllable and the heat is instant. If you just want to heat up things and do basic type cooking then electric is fine, but I would personally choose gas.

we have a gas hob and oven, I have cooked on gas for years now and find them more controllable to cook with, and over time you will get use to the gas settings.

I would definitely suggest you a gas cooker as it is easy to use,low maintenance is required plus they are cheaper than electric one.Durability of gas cooker is more than electric cookers and if you are reinstalling a electric cooker in place of gas cooker the cost will be very high.
