Gas oven or electric oven?

Feel free to say why smile

Gas, I've always had gas. Not a very good reason I knowgrin

Gas hob, electric oven for best results.

Why do you prefer an electric oven Penny?

Gas. For the hob really because electric hobs are pants. I wish I'd had gas fitted to the kitchen because I hate the electric hob so much.
Also gas costs less per kWh used so is cheaper to run.

gas for both - more responsive and cheaper. Spent £400 to get gas into new kitchen. Worth it.

Gas hob, electric oven.

I SO miss my gas hob in my old house. On this stupid electric one, it's impossible to get a really low simmer. The ring is either on or it's not. I hate it with a passion.

Easier to clean though.

Electric oven is more even heat, for better baking etc. Gas hobs are better for heating pans etc.

Thanks for all the replies so far smile

I know I definitely want a gas hob - tis just the oven I'm debating as I like the responsiveness of gas (and it's cheaper) but maybe electric gives a more even heat.

Gas 3 Electric 4

Gas much more responsive. Currently back with parents while we buy our new house loong story grin and mum has gas hob but double electric oven one of them a fan oven. I've cooked here lots before and I just can't get on with the electric oven especially the fan, everything always cooks way too quickly oven almost always too hot me no like
