Here is the drawback to gas cooktop - they are NOT easy to clean! I can`t tell you how many people tell me about how they`ve scratched the porcelain or stainless steel on their cooking surface trying to scour it clean. And that`s not to mention normal heat discoloration that is easily visible after regular use with stainless steel cooking surfaces. The grates are also hard to keep looking new. Grates should not be washed in the dishwasher as the rubber grommets will wash out. The grates will more than likely develop rust in the dishwasher, too.
In conclusion, there are pros and cons with electric cook top compared to gas cooktop. Therefore, before doing any purchase, do take all these advantages and disadvantages into your consideration. The rule of thumbs here is to figure out what your cooking frequency and style is. For instance, if you do a lot of cooking at home and you require high intensity cooking that utilizes high temperature and fast reaction time, the gas version is definitely your best bet. On the other hand, if you do only seasonal cooking once in a blue moon or maybe you do only light cooking, then the electric cooktop is certainly the way to go.
