I am buying a new cooktop and am wondering if I should consider gas over electric.  Do you have a preference?

I like the flexibility that gas provides over electric.  The heat is much more variable and easier to control.  Also, gas doesn’t take time to heat up and the burners tend to cool off more quickly than electric.  The ideal combination for a kitchen is a gas cooktop and an electric oven.  There are ‘dual fuel’ ranges, or you can choose a gas cooktop and an electric wall oven.  Thanks for asking!
