Smeg - Built in gas oven or electric?

missteaApril 12, 2013

hello,
has anybody used the smeg built in gas oven? im reading that it has an electrical ignition, what is one supposed to do in case of an electricity outage? also, do gas ovens produce better cakes or electric? i know this is such an old worn out topic, but from what iv researched gas ovens have a greater moisture level thus producing softer cakes as opposed to electric ovens which can dry out cakes, is that the case?

Most (all?) new gas ovens, cooktops, and stoves use electric igniters so you're not wasting gas 24/7 keeping a pilot light burning, and so if the pilot burns out for some reason you won't have gas leaking into your home.
