You will have a transition.

Remember gas stoves respond better. So that means they get hot faster and cool faster. 

So on an electric you are probably used to turning it off and still having heat to finish cooking, keep warm etc. This is not the case with a gas.

I also can get really hot really fast. So watch burning your food.

Think of it this way “It does what you want it to do at the moment you do it” You do not have to factor in slow heating time or residual heat.

My parents always had electric. When I moved into my house it was gas. The only thing that was different was how to turn it on. I’m a terrible cook though so maybe I didn’t notice the change because I tend to burn and/o overcook everything no matter if its gas or electric 🙂

@mandb122: It does heat faster. Depending on what heat you are looking for and the type of pan will depend on how long it takes. But it does heat faster. Just test the pan for heat as you would anyways, just test earlier.

Gas is sooo much better! I was convinced I was going to blow up the house the first few times I tried to get it to catch. Smelling gas was a little disturbing. I did have to adjust to the pans heating up quicker, I still burn garlic on occasion and have to start over.

I have used both electric and gas and saw no real difference on how they cooked.
