Gas, Induktion or electric oven?
Building my kitchen part 2.
Today I have Gas STOVE, but start to think about induktion. Easier cleaning.
What to you recommend?
Gas stove, with an extra induction plate (1500 or 1800W) on the side for times when you want to really boil things fast. I think there is so much more you can do with Gas.
Definitely gas, you also have to realise that when your pan is not perfectly clean on the bottom, or the plate has bits of dirt on it, intuction wont work. That way you can loose time and patience.
Gas is doing the best job for me, heating things up quicklky, responds the change in the flame also.
And if you would cook tajine then theres nothing better. I dont think you can use the clay form on induction or electric because of the direct contact with heating source, am i right?
And if you go and look for La Cornue you will see they sell some crazy beautiful stuff down there.
Gas, but hopefully you can lay your hands on a pro-sumer grade unit with a couple serious burners (i.e., 15,000 BTU or more).
Sorry, but that's just not correct.

If you do any cooking requiring a flame (blistering a pepper to get the skin off or flambe) then induction is not for you.
