Is cookware different for a gas stove?

Is cookware different for a gas stove?

We just bought a new house and they have a brand new gas stove that is conveying. I want to buy new cookware (because I REALLY need it) but don't know the difference. The only cookware I have bought up till now is really cheap stuff.

I do know that the electric bill is different with a gas stove! Gas stoves are so much cheaper! Plus cooking over a flame is healthier.

I have never noticed any problems with any kind of cookware. If the flames are too high, the pot can get some black on them, but it washes off.

If you have a Ross, you can find good deals on cookware there. I got a bunch of cast iron and stainless steel pots and pans for lower prices than anywhere else.

Re: Is cookware different for a gas stove?

Nope. Gas is easier to cook on than electric, actually. The heat is more predictable and controllable so you're less likely to burn food or ruin pans. You might notice a little black gunk building up on the bottom of your cookware but that's usually only if you let things boil over or if you get grease on the underside of your pans. Copper bottomed cookware (like Revere Ware) can get a little tarnished over a gas flame and sometimes stainless (like All Clad) will get a yellowish haze. But, if that bothers you, you can always just scour it off, although it doesn't really effect the usefulness of the pan.
