Nothing beats a heavy-duty, commercial-type gas stove. Buy from a restaurant supplier and you will pay less for it. It will be stainless steel with extra-heavy cast-iron grates with burners well in excess of 20,000 BTU--I've forgotten exactly the number, but the higher the better. Do, however, check your local building codes for installation. Mine required 8 inches clearance from any combustible material, but you should have stainless steel prep tables or cabinets anyway. Electric is not a tool of serious chefs. Wood stoves are ok, but require great skill and a lot of work to use properly.

We are trying to decide what stove/oven to put in our comon house at
Belfast Area Cohousing. We have decided not to use gas in our
community, so does anybody have comments or advice, either positive or
negative, about electric models? Thanks for taking the time to let
usknow your experience.
