Disadvantages of an electric stove: We have come a long way but it used to be around the cook top. I mean, in the past, you could only get an electric stove with a coil element stove, and they were efficient as far as speed to boil. They were very fast that way, but they were not very flexible. You couldn't have what we call on a glass surface or ceramic surface electric range, where you can put three different pot sizes on one burner. You couldn't put your roasting pan on there or your griddle, because they didn't have what we call a bridge element. You also couldn't keep things warm on your cook top without occupying one of your burners. Now we have these things called "Keep warm zone." You couldn't get delicate simmer on an electric cook top, and now we have got these special simmer settings that allow you to get that. So a lot of drawbacks from electric have gone away as well.


Energy efficiency of electric stoves - If you are talking about electricity, obviously a gas stove is more efficient. If you are talking about actual energy, they both have about the same performance level.
