Yep, makes all the difference in the world! Gas seems to give you a much larger "sweet spot", where you can cook your food without burning it. Your parents seem to have a nice electric stove as well. But yeah, those coil stoves are the worst. When I was a kid, my mom would burn stuff too. I still have a scar from the time I got curious to see what would happen if I touched the coil when it was red. And I wondered why my mom worried about me so much.
