wall ovens, electric or gas?

which do you prefer, i'm trying to make a decision and I can't see the difference between the two(I've used both types) i'm aware that electric will give me more choices, however i'd like to hear your opinions.
thank you for any advice.

  1. Maybe I'm biased, but my vote goes hands down to electric. Rapid heat/cool/heat changes are usually not necessary in the oven, and electric provides rapid and consistent heat. Gas excels on the cooktop, where changes in temperature are important and response times are much faster with gas.

      I totally agree. Also if a lot of people are all using gas at the same time, think big holidays, your gas pressure can drop and you will not get heat as evenly as desired. Of course a good thick pizza stone which can live in your oven an help keep the heat at the right temperature.

    2. thanks everyone, it sounds good.
