4 Reasons to Consider Propane Kitchen Appliances
Performance, style, efficiency and a reduced environmental impact — that’s what propane brings to the table. In this case, your kitchen table. Propane appliances can take your kitchen — and your cooking — to the next level. Here are 4 reasons why propane appliances are a great choice for any kitchen.
- Performance. Cooking with propane offers precise temperature control, which makes it easier to get food cooked just the way you want it. Additionally, propane burners are instant-on and instant-off, so you can start cooking right away and stop when you want, so food is not overcooked. Plus, the stovetop will cool down quickly, which is an additional safety feature that can help avoid burns. For these reasons, 96% of professional chefs prefer cooking with gas heat over electric.
- Luxurious units. Propane kitchen ranges come in a variety of beautiful designs that will compliment any home. Whether you are looking for space-savers or commercial grade appliances, you are sure to find a propane cookstove that will meet your needs. You can build your dream kitchen with a stainless-steel range, indoor grill and cooktop, and an in-wall double oven. Additionally, propane appliances offer smart controls for different cooking modes, griddle and grilling features, warming drawers, and ovens with convection and steam settings.
- Energy consumption and cost. The amount of energy used in the kitchen primarily depends on how often appliances are used, but the general estimate is 40-60 gallons of propane a year, which translates to only about $80-$120. Switching to propane can cut down on your electric bill while offering several other benefits at the same time.
- Environmental impact. When electricity is generated in power plants, CO₂ is emitted in the process. Taking this into consideration, using propane instead of electricity to cook can reduce an average home’s CO₂ emissions by up to 30%.
All of these reasons make propane a great addition to any kitchen. Whether you are building a new home or remodeling an existing home, propane kitchen appliances are easy to install. Your construction professional can easily use flexible corrugated stainless steel tubing gas lines to route propane to your appliances.
With the beautiful designs, easy installation and unmatched performance of propane kitchen appliances, you can start cooking like a professional chef today and enjoy more of the benefits of propane.
