I have never had a gas stove that didn't give me satisfactory precision, at least equal to that of an electric stove. And the gas stove's clear superiority is in a gas flame's having almost no thermal inertia, whereas the coils of an electric stove stay hot for minutes rather than seconds. I'd also note that it's possible to lift a pot above a gas flame and still get reduced heat, but if you lift it off electric coils the heat flow is all but cut off.

A human being should know how to live fast, die young, and leave a beautiful corpse. Specialization is for insects.
