They both have their pros and cons. It really comes down to your cooking style and preferences. Gas ranges offer a more even stove heat for cooking as well as cook faster as the flame will heat not only the bottom of the pot/pan but the sides as well. Natural gas is inexpensive, abundantly available and clean burning and doesn’t overheat your kitchen. Hey also allow for faster cool down times as once the flame is out, it is no longer cooking the food allowing for more control of your oven. Electric ranges are easier to clean. Smooth top ranges allow for further storage space or counter space when not in use. They instantly turn on or off with the turn of a knob. More even heat distribution when baking.
