Does cooking with Gas affect taste.

uncle_deanDecember 9, 2009

I'm in the process of building a new kitchen and have researched many different cooktops. I'm wondering if the different form of cooktops i.e. (gas, radient, induction) affect the taste of foods. I know for a fact tha micro-waving effects the taste of my wifes tea and she much prefers the tea I make her heating the water on the stove top. So if I follow this reasoning different energy sources should affect taste. Does anyone have experience with the way that food cooked over gas differs from foods cooked over and electric source be it radient or induction?

You might want to also check out the Cooking Forum and Kitchens. This forum runs a little slower than either of those.

But to my knowledge, cooking fuel will not affect food flavors. I suppose the microwaving water relates more to it being aerated more when brought to a boil on the cooktop than in a microwave.

But I cook with gas on the cooktop and have electric ovens (dual fuel) and I wouldn't have it any other way. As the sayong goes YMMV.

Ihave always had gas (not personally!) and am now experimenting with induction. There is absolutely no difference in the cooked product. As to preference, I would vote for either of these, but definitely not standard electric, because it can't be adjusted quickly.
