I love cooking with my gas stove. I grew up with it and when I had to use electric when we first got married, I had a hard time getting used to it. I was very happy to have it once again in our current home. One thing I hate though is trying to clean the metal grates and pans. With as much cooking as I do, it is inevitable that things will get spilled or splattered on them. And then when it gets cooked on, it sure doesn't want to come off. I am a little embarrassed to show you this picture, but this is what my stove looked like a couple days ago.
