Thanks, have to make a walk in closet a kitchen for a loved one!
So easy to just plug into electricity on it's own circuit...have to hook up the gas
in my crawl space and up to it, otherwise.

How safe is it to make a closet into a kitchen?

Electric will need a 220v outlet installed. There may be specific ventilation requirements for gas stoves in your area. If this isn't going to be permanent, maybe a microwave and one induction burner would be better than installing a 4 burner stove.

If gas is available it is almost always the better choice.

otoh... a kitchen in a closet might be one of those times to not do so.
Probably not an electric stove either.

Ventilation is the issue here.
Don't cheap out.

Gas is always the best choice but it sounds like it would require a lot of construction and there could also be safety concerns making a closet into a kitchen. Me personally, I would get a 2 burner induction unit and a convection oven. Done! No special electrical and these both conserve energy and are very safe. And with a little practice I could cook dinner for 10, no problem.
