I confess I am not much of a cook. So I didn’t know gas stoves were so rare or that it was a thing that people wanted until recently. We’ll talk about why that is at the end but want to go ahead and get the list to everyone first.

Why do most apartments have electric stoves?
Gas stoves are preferred by many for their more consistent and wider range of temperatures, but I’m sure you already can guess why they are harder to find in a complex. It’s because of money. Gas stoves are more expensive to build in and more expensive to maintain. There is also a safety issue you have to consider. It greatly reduces carbon monoxide liability. And I’m sure most of you won’t have to think hard before you remember a neighbor that might have been capable of setting the building on fire if they had access to flammable gas.
All that is why you generally only see gas stoves in older places that have never done big updates to their interiors or in newer luxury places that want to charge top dollar for everything.
