    The biggest misconception is that the instructions are for gas range not for electric.

    Mine is gas.

    But what is the misconception between the two? I mean, why does one work better than the other?

    Gas= bring the eggs to a boil, cover and turn off heat. Let sit for 20 minutes and they are ready for cold wash and de shell.
    Electric = bring the eggs to a boil, remove from heat since electric holds heat and cover and let sit for 20 minutes and they are ready for cold wash and de shell.
    same concept for rice, sort of.

    Yeah, electric burners don't stop the heat right away, like gas burners do.

    You have to remove the pan or pot off the burner right away if you want to stop the cooking over boiling over immediately.

    I'm waiting to be approved for an apartment in a housing development up the street, and all of the apartments are all-electric, meaning that they all have an electric stove for cooking with.

    Even though I am not particularly fond of electric stoves, if the apartment I move into has one, then I'll just have to accept it. It WILL mean getting off the 4th floor where I am, and where there is no elevator, and moving into a building with one or a building on ther 1st floor!

    It takes a little while to get used to electric and each stove has it's own temp. but it sounds like it will be a good move for you.

    Yeah, I've had several apartments that had an electric stove, so the next one won't be any diffrerent. The only thing is that since I'll be getting a one-bedroom, they all have 24" stoves, and they are narrow, so I'll have to accept it.

    Yeah, you're RIGHT!!

    It's not an eat-in kitchen like I have now, but i don't care. The kitchen floor will be small also, so that's less to have to sweep & mop! I'll have a sink in the bathroom, which I don't have now.

    Ah. the things we take for granted. I had many years without a shower. My parents had a cottage and we had at least 3 yrs no water on tap, 5 yrs. no hot water, 10 yrs no phone. you just made do.
    I live in the country and go without hydro sometimes. So we keep a drinking water supply, water for the toilet and washing. BBQ on standby. Wood for fireplace. etc. not so bad.
