Which Type of Stove Should I Purchase?

Over the last few years, the evolution of technology has been in overdrive, and the field of home appliances hasn't been left out. There are more options than ever out there and when it comes to making the right decision, a lot of factors need to be considered. Today's article will focus on the main types of stove you can purchase if you're in the market for a new device. Don't hesitate to get in touch with us here at First Priority Appliance Repair if you have any question or if you need stove service in the greater San Antonio area in Texas.

Gas stove

Probably one of the oldest types of stoves available on the market. This is the type of stove that uses fire to cook your food, which means you need to be careful with gas leaks and whatnot. However, it will get your meal ready pretty quickly. Not only that, since gas stoves usually use propane, you'll be able to cut back on your utilities' bill, since you don't need to use as much to get the result you want. There is a safety concern with children, and they should be aware that such a device is not to be played with.

Electrical stove

This is as standard of a stove as they come, and most people will have an electrical stove in their house. While usually costing less to get, they tend to use up a lot of power, which can become expansive over time. The two main types of electrical stoves are the flattop model (with the elements underneath the surface) and the open-coil model, which has the elements stand above ground, usually in a spiral fashion.


Induction stove

Thanks to the wonders of technology, this little bad boy works using magnetic energy to cook your food. It also generates a lot less heat, which is safer. That being said, keep in mind that you need to have the right pans and pots to use it, as not all materials work on such a device.
