(Family Features) There’s a reason 96% of professional chefs love cooking with gas. Propane-powered cooking appliances offer greater control of heat levels, a modern design and excellent performance in any kitchen – from starter homes to high-end custom projects.
On average, propane-powered appliances are better for the environment as they generate fewer greenhouse gas emissions than electric ranges. That’s because more than 60% of electricity production comes from natural gas or coal generation plants, which release more carbon dioxide emissions.
There’s been a lot of misinformation about cooking with gas. The act of cooking reduces indoor air quality, regardless of the energy powering the stove. Ventilation when cooking is key, as is the energy source you choose to power kitchen appliances. However, there are steps you can take to improve indoor air quality when creating meals.
Consider these tips from the experts at Propane Education & Research Council for proper ventilation in your kitchen.
