Energy Efficient and Clean Fuel of choice
The versatility offered by LPG includes benefits of open flame cooking, ease of transport and storage, among many others. In many instances, LPG is more affordable than alternatives like natural gas and electricity. Once transported in the right quantities, usage of LPG involves no additional service charge, making it more cost effective for many businesses.
Benefits of Cooking with LPG
Temperature Control & Flame
- Open flame cooking is necessary for certain type of dishes like stir frys and hot pots.
- LPG stoves offer instantaneous and more responsive temperature control when compared with electric cook tops
- LPG burns completely and has higher calorific value than natural gas, making it more efficient.
LPG Transportability & shelf-life
- Use of LPG is ideal for commercial cooking arrangements where there is no access to Natural Gas.
- LPG can easily be transported and stored for long durations as LPG has an indifinite shelf life.
- The only thing to be mindful of with LPG storage is cylinder/tank maintenance. LPG cylinders are robust and can easily be stored without issues for a decade.
- LPG stoves are more durable than electric cooktop alternatives like ceramic, hot plate and induction.
- On the downside, the clean-up process may be a little more time-consuming with an LPG cooktop. However, LPG cooktops’ ability to handle significant wear and tear in a commercial kitchen significantly outweighs this disadvantage.
