Using Propane for Cooking
Propane kitchen appliances bring efficiency and functionality to any commercial property, large or small. These appliances meet a wide array of needs – from low-cost, simpler units to deluxe units featuring every possible add-on to maximize your options when cooking.
There are two main types of appliances that use propane for cooking:
• Gas burners. The most common are conventional burners with standing pilots, conventional burners with an electric ignition (most gas cooktops have this), and sealed burners with electric ignition.
• Gas ovens. The heat generated by gas ovens has more moisture than electric ovens, which makes for better quality baking. Also, gas ovens only cool by 10°F before heating up again, which is helpful if your business relies on a fast-paced kitchen.
BENEFITS OF COOKING WITH PROPANE
VS. NATURAL GAS AND ELECTRIC
Cooking with propane offers many significant advantages over cooking with electric or natural gas.
Cooking with Propane vs. Electric
Increased SavingsCooking with propane, on average, costs less than cooking with electricity. A gas cook top with electric ignition has the lowest annual operating cost.
Instant HeatPropane-fueled cook tops offer instant heat and absolute temperature control. You can cook as soon as you turn on your appliance instead of wasting time waiting for electric burners to warm up.
Power Outage, No Problem
Power Outage, No ProblemIn many cases, you can cook with propane even if there’s no electrical service. If you’re cooking with electricity, a power outage can create serious problems at your business.
Reduced CostsUse propane for more than just your stove in the kitchen. Propane hot water heaters can reduce water heating costs up to 30% compared to electric heaters. Tankless hot water heaters can reduce expenses even further.
