Why is it that you prefer your ovens to be electric?

One time, we were visiting my wife’s parents, and cooked meatloaf for their family. They have a gas, convection, oven, and it cookEd the meatloaf, far better than our electric ovens at home.

Another hint: cold medium Salsa is a great topping for a thick a slice meatloaf on your plate
