    What do you mean upgrade to an electric stove? 90% of the electric ranges out there (all the ones in use) are worse for cooking than 95% of the gas ranges in use today. Professional cooks prefer to cook with gas stoves because of better and faster heat control. Next time please make the word change or something else less charged (pun intended).

      Hi Howard,
      Actually I had to laugh when I read this because I share your same opinion. I was just going with the wording of the question. Actually I personally prefer a gas stove or cook top and an electric oven.
      Thanks for your input
