Helpful Tips For Choosing A Gas Oven

By Fabian Verzini

At first, the gas oven was used for commercial purposes. Cooks at home wanted a version available for them to use in their own kitchen. The smaller appliance was created and since then modifications have continued to be made. At home people could heat up food directly or via intermediary stone cookware.

The older models use a gas pilot to light the burners. The pilot is always burning under the cook top. When the knob turns to the on position, gas flows to the burners and pass the pilot, which ignites it.

All the new models use electric sparks to ignite the appliance. The electric ignition system saves on fuel because it is not always burning like the pilot light. Once lighted, the flames on both versions should burn blue. If it is yellow, it is not getting the right mix of gas and air and needs cleaning by a professional or the owner.

Models include double compartments or single. The chef or cook who does a lot of baking or cooking will benefit from the double model. They can use one section for baking only and the other for grilling, roasting or broiling.

With this appliance, there is no wasted fuel. The gas runs directly from the pipeline into the house then used to bake, grill or roast food. They should also last over twenty years. Both of these aspects make them cheaper to own and operate.

Gas cooking can sometimes create hazardous byproducts in the home. For this reason proper ventilation should always be installed above the stove and in proper working order. Ensuring the kitchen is ventilated correctly will protect from carbon monoxide poisoning.

There are a few things to remember when shopping for a new gas oven. Buy from a store or manufacture that offers a warranty. Decide if you want one that is self-cleaning or not. Make certain it will fit in the available kitchen space and will it cost too much or is it in your price range.
