Professional chefs and avid home cooks prefer clean-burning natural gas for their kitchen ranges. They’re passionate about the variable temperature control natural gas offers, as well as its instant on-and-off availability, without the need for storage and scheduling deliveries. It’s easy to appreciate the key advantages of cooking with natural gas.

The best-loved feature of cooking with natural gas is the instant availability of high heat and immediate heat reduction with merely a turn of the burner control knob. If you’ve ever cooked with an electric stove, then you know the patience it takes to wait for a burner to reach the high or low temperature you want or, the inability to cook in the event of a power outage. Those accustomed to propane know the dirtiness of its burn and inconvenience of having to worry about deliveries and finding a way to conceal, yet still access, the storage tank. None of these concerns exist when relying on natural gas.



Natural gas cooking appliances come in a range of styles and sizes to fit any kitchen, and are made of lasting materials such as stainless steel and porcelain-coated steel. Gourmet chefs can enjoy the flexibility of a five or six burner range and often add on a pop-in grill option. Many also enjoy the addition of a warming drawer, to help with preparing a suitably warm and well-timed meal. When there is more than one cook in the home, it isn’t unheard of to install an additional two-burner range for prep or rewarming activities. When not in use, stove burner covers enable it to be concealed and the counter-top to be reclaimed.

For those who love to cook both indoors and out, installing a convenience switch for outdoor grilling guarantees a seamless switch between the two. Never again worry about running out of propane for the grill midway through a barbecue, or having to stoke charcoal; a quick-connect convenience switch keeps the grill running just the same as your indoor appliances. Even better is that it can also power patio heaters and fire pits to set a warm ambiance for enjoying the meal just prepared.
