Calculating How Much Gas Your Stove or Range Uses

Propane is a highly efficient fuel source, with each gallon providing 91,500 British Thermal Units (BTUs) of energy every hour. To put this into perspective, BTUs measure the amount of heat required to increase or decrease one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit.

By regularly cooking on a propane range, you’ll expend approximately 30 to 50 gallons of propane yearly. Consequently, we advise that households relying solely on propane for cooking purposes invest in a 60-gallon tank size—but if your home uses more propane appliances, then it’s a smart move to go with a bigger tank.

Propane stoves generate heat more cost-effectively than their electrical counterparts, often up to 30% or more. Depending on your cooking habits, this could result in impressive savings on your energy bills every month.

What are the Advantages of Using Propane for Cooking?

When it comes to cooking, propane is preferred by professional chefs for a whole lot of reasons besides its energy and cost efficiencies.

Propane provides exact, instant temperature control that can help you ensure that your steak is cooked exactly as you like it. From both rare to medium-well, you’ll be without worry that it’ll turn into shoe leather. It allows you to cook delicate foods like fish and vegetables with the precision they need so their flavors and textures don’t get ruined.

The burners on an electric range take much longer to heat up and cool down. That means your meat may steam more than sear, and you’re more likely to scorch a pot of rice. Electric burners only have a few settings, so the temperature control is much less precise than a propane range.

Further, propane ovens provide a moister heat than electric ovens, meaning roasts and your Thanksgiving turkey are much less likely to dry out!
