How Does a Combination Gas Electric Stove Work?

You have to simply love living in this modern era where appliances have been manufactured to be functional, save you money and make life more interesting. There are appliances that have been designed with aesthetics and function in mind. That being said, there are many household appliances that have been designed with a dual function or combination of two products, such as a stove and oven, a coffee machine and many others. I’m sure you probably have some appliance that combines two in one.

In this article I want to focus on a combination gas electric stove. This is a wonderful invention, I think. And there are many reasons why. Having gas and electric in one appliance ensures that I can switch between the two when I need to. So when there is an electricity outage in my area, I can switch my stove to function as a gas stove thereby not requiring any electricity. I can continue cooking for my family while the rest of the area is experiencing with load shedding. However, if I forget to top up my gas cylinders, I can switch to the electricity and cook my food conventionally. Either way, I always have the strength to cook.

Now many people are put off by gas stoves, simply due to not understanding how it works. But it is so simple and easy to use. Once you get used to it, you don’t want to go back. But having a combination gas electric stove allows you to switch between the two and eases you into getting used to using gas in your home. All the while, you are able to save on electricity costs.

Switching between gas and electric is quite simple. A reputable gas installer should install your stove so that you are guaranteed that it works properly before you use it. Then using it is easy. Once the stove is plugged into the electrical wall socket and is connected to a gas cylinder, you are ready to cook.

The stove will have different knobs. These knobs will be allocated to either drawing gas from the connected cylinders or to draw electricity from the wall socket. It will depend on which knob you turn that will activate the desired strength source. These knobs will be indicated on the front of your stove.

There it is. It’s not complicated and anyone can use a combination gas electric stove.
