Gas Ranges: Natural Gas or Propane?

You’re thinking of buying a new Viking gas range¬†or a grill, but don’t know if you should get one with natural gas or propane gas. How do you choose?

Here are the facts that will help you choose between the two:

Natural gas comes out of the ground, usually in the form of methane. It’s more difficult to compress, meaning that it is more difficult to store. The jet hole for natural gas on a stove is about twice as big as the jet for propane because natural gas stores less energy. Natural gas tends to be less expensive and usually fills up through the gas system in your home, if you already have one installed.

Propane is formed through the distillation of crude oil and can be stored in liquid form when compressed. It has a lot more energy than natural gas, so a smaller jet hole is needed to produce the same amount of heat. It is usually more expensive than natural gas and you have to go out and buy it.

As far as taste goes when you’re cooking your food, you shouldn’t see any difference between the two.
