DH and I will be moving to an area where there is no natural gas.
In our current home, when DH was single, he had an electric stove. Within 2 years of marriage, I had him put in a gas stove (we already had gas coming to the house so it just required a pipe..not cheap, but not outrageous).
I've done research on this and here are my thoughts:
I much prefer gas to electric. If you have to use propane, in order to get good BTU output, you must buy a cooktop/stove that is MADE FOR propane.
Wolf, Caldera, and I think Bluestar are a few that make their appliances SPECIFICALLY for propane or natural gas. If you buy something like Bosch,GE profile, etc, they have CONVERTERS.....converters will lower the BTU output which means you are paying for the "high end, high BTU burners" but your burners will not be what they say.
If you have no heart conditions (pacemakers) in the family and have stainless or cast iron cookware, you can think about induction (uses electric and magnetic) which burns as hot/high and is as responsive (if not more so) than gas.
