Amidst the new energy efficiency standards set in place by the U.S. Department of Energy, gas stoves have emerged unscathed. These standards were introduced with an aim to slash household utility costs, enhance appliance reliability, and boost performance without placing any restrictions on gas stoves’ high-powered burners and oversize cast-iron grates.

The final rules initiated by the U.S. Department of Energy are a result of a consensus between environmental and consumer groups, as well as big players in the appliance industry, such as Whirlpool (NYSE:WHR). According to the U.S. DOE, a whopping 97% of today’s gas stoves are already in compliance with the new efficiency standards, while 23% of smooth top electric stoves fall short.

Manufacturers, including imports, will be mandated to comply with the new standards for all newly produced models from January 31, 2028.

The public outcry that ensued last year, following comments from a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s commissioner labeling gas stoves as a health hazard, was later retracted by the CPSC’s chairman. Nonetheless, several municipalities such as New York and Los Angeles have still imposed restrictions on using natural gas in newly constructed homes.

Despite claims linking gas stoves to an increased risk of conditions such as asthma, made by some including the American Gas Association, these have been refuted as faulty research.
