Cost of Gas Vs Electric

Commercial Kitchen Equipment Maintenance White Paper
Download the Complete Whitepaper:

Executive Summary

A common perception has existed in which operators feel that gas commercial kitchen equipment costs more to maintain and repair than electric equipment. This is an outdated premise that is no longer valid due to a variety of technical changes in the manufacturing of equipment. Pricing of parts, technical labor, equipment engineering and a real world look at gas equipment maintenance requirements confirm this premise.

As President of the kitchen equipment industry’s dealer trade association, I’ve presented countless speeches on this topic and have been a regular content contributor and interview subject for every major foodservice publication on a regular basis.
