I currently have a gas range. The pilot light stays lit. I bought the range thinking if the power went out I would always be able to cook, as opposed to an electric ignition range. Well now that gas prices are sky high I am wondering if I would be better off getting a range that has the electric ignition on it?
If you have an outdoor gas grill, that could be your cooking source in the event of a power outage, if you decide to go the electric range route. I thought most gas ranges had electronic ignition... so you'd have to light the eyes with a match or lighter anyway if you had no power. Since I prefer cooking with gas, the small amount of gas burned and heat generated from the pilot would not matter much to me.
