Gas ovens suck

November 18th, 2004

I hate our gas oven. Ever since I’ve been out on my own, I’ve had electric stoves. I’ve learned to cook on them and I like them. And as soon as we can afford one, that’s what I’m buying for our place.

This gas oven burnt the top of the brownies I was baking and left the insides uncooked. This has never happened before. I was making them for our Thanksgiving feast at work tomorrow. So I had to run out and get some brownies. Target didn’t have any; I ended up spending $8 at Dominicks on brownie bites. They could at least had some frosting on them for that price. Granted, there’s 2 lbs., but still.

If one person says something tomorrow about how I didn’t bake the brownies, they are getting a foot up their ass. That includes you especially.

    I guess there’s a trick to each kind of oven. I had an electric oven for years, then a gas oven for years, and now I’ve had electric again for several years and by this time next year I will have switched back to gas (major remodel on the ground floor of our house coming up soon). I bake stuff just fine in my electric oven, but I can’t remember how gas ovens bake.

    Ah, but ranges (cooktops) are another story altogether. There, the clear winner is gas, hands down. I cannot wait to get back to the fine control of a gas range – it’s going to make all my cooking so much easier.

    I think it depends on what you’re used to. Most of my coworkers grew up with gas and they burn everything with electric. I, on the other hand, grew up with electric and have never cooked with gas but when Scott and I buy a new house I’m going to try to get a super duper amazing kitchen and make sure I have a massive gas stove/oven.

    Hrm…Remember how you asked me if I brought anything and I said “yes” and left it at that? It wasn’t because I’d read this post yet. It was because what people bring to events such as that, and what they had to do to bring it is unimportant to me. I, too, brought store-bought goods for the cause. It matters not to me. People get too wrapped up in that shit.

    Sucks about your oven. I grew up on gas and love it. I wonder if your oven’s temp gauge is calibrated properly? No idea if that’s even possible, but it’s a thought.
