DeWalt TSTAK Buying Guide: Are You Ready To Go Full TSTAK?
If you are looking for a new electric stove or oven, then it’s time to buy one. There are many different models available and they all have their pros and cons. The best thing is that there is no right or wrong model. You just need to choose which one suits your needs best.
However, if you’re not sure what type of stove or oven you want, then it might be difficult to decide between them. So let’s see how much money you’ll save by buying a certain model instead of another.
Let’s say you want to buy a new electric stove. You could spend $500 on a conventional gas stove, or you could spend $700 on a high efficiency electric stove.
Which would you rather pay?
The answer is obvious – the higher cost electric stove will give you better quality at lower price.
But what if I told you that the same amount of money could be saved by spending it on a cheaper model?
That’s exactly what we are going to do today!
What we are going to do is take a conventional gas stove that costs $500 and compare it with an electric stove that also costs $500. We’ll then analyze the difference in quality between these two stoves. By doing this, we’ll be able to find out whether it’s worth spending more money on a more expensive electric stove.
The model that we’ve chosen for the more expensive gas stove is the White-Westinghouse GX53LN. This is a pretty standard gas stove with 5 burners and a griddle. 5 burners are more useful than you might think – you can easily cook a number of different dishes at the same time using this one stove!
Since we are on the topic of burners, it’s important to note that not all of them are created equal. Some burners have large flames while others have small flames. The large flame burners are great for fast boiling, while the small flame burners are perfect for slow cooking curries and other sauces.
The griddle that comes with this stove is fairly large, so you could use it to make some pancakes for the whole family! A warming zone is also available so you can keep food that needs to stay warm until serving time.
On the flip side, we’ve chosen the Frigidaire FFHT1513QF. As the name suggests, this is a 15000 BTU electric stove. It has 5 burners which is quite a lot for an electric stove of this price range.
5 burners means that you’ll be able to prepare 5 different dishes at the same time!
It also comes with a large griddle, so you’ll be able to make everything from bacon and eggs to pancakes and crepes with this one appliance! You can also choose to use the griddle to keep food warm using the “keep warm” setting.
Electric stoves are generally more expensive than their gas counterparts, so you might be wondering if it’s worth spending more money on an electric stove. The simple answer is: if you prefer electric cooking, then it’s probably a cheaper option for you!
The more complex answer involves analyzing exactly how much each cooking appliance costs you over a period of time. Let’s do some math:
GAS STOVE ELECTRIC STOVE
Cost of stove: 500 Cost of stove: 500
Assuming you use your stove 20 times a month: (500/20) = 25 per use Assuming you use your stove 20 times a month: (500/20) = 25 per use
So, what does this mean?
This means that the gas stove would cost you $600 per year while the electric stove would cost you $1000 per year. This means that the electric stove is 50% more expensive to run than the gas stove.
You’ll have to determine for yourself whether this extra cost is worth it when you’re cooking!
Gas stoves are generally cheaper to operate than electric stoves.
Electric stoves have more burners, so you can cook more things at once.
Last week, we took a look at gas and electric stoves and compared their price to performance ratio. We established that gas stoves are cheaper to run than electric stoves if we ignore the initial price of each stove.
But what happens if we factor in the initial price? Is it cheaper to run an electric stove for 5 years and then buy a new one or to run a gas stove for 20 years?
The answer is that it depends on the price of gas and electricity that you pay. If your electricity is very cheap, then it would be cheaper to run the electric stove for 5 years and then buy a new one. However, if your electricity costs more, then it would be cheaper to run the gas stove for 20 years.
With all of this information in mind, let’s look at some stoves!
The first stove that we’ll look at is the white Samsung EJ-J4700S. This is a very cheap stove, retailing for around $100. It comes with two standard burners and one extra large burner, so it’s perfect for any situation from fast cooking to slow cooking.
The second stove that we’ll look at is the TechChef TCH163BST. This stove retails for a little bit more than the Samsung, coming in at $180. It has 3 standard burners and also has a griddle for making food on both sides at once.
The last stove that we’ll look at is the Royal ROYCD48LP1C. This stove is one of the most expensive stoves that we will be looking at, retailing at $700. It has six burners, so you can cook multiple things at once.
