Re: Cooking on a Gas Stove.

Sometimes when you get the gas smell also it means the pilot light is out. Its the small flame under the range top when you lift it which feeds into the four burners.  Maybe that's clogged a little also and your flame was small and didn't light till the gas built up. This site here has some good tips

I much prefer cooking on gas stoves. You can get the temperature just right.

Yeah.. with my ceramic smooth-top, the thermostat either has them on or off.  :(

The ignitor could be on the fritz, one of mine is, and all it invloves is taking one of those grill lighters and lighting it near the burner BEFORE turning it to the clicks.

And i have ALWAYS cooked with gas. I hate electric stoves.. way too slow for me, and no control of temperature.

Re: Cooking on a Gas Stove.

will the gas/flames stain up or discolor my cookware on the bottom? they generally hang from the pot rack (ceiling) when not in use. are the bottoms of the cookware going to get all dirty/brown now? what is a good product to use on them if they do? i have the all-clad ltd II.

Never stained up my pyrex to anything that a normal scrubby/non metal brillo couldn't  take care of.

Re: Cooking on a Gas Stove.

When we bought new cookware they told us with the gas stove, we shouldn't use too high of a heat setting because it will discolor the bottom of the pans. If I use the good cookware I try to follow that advice, but if I want it to heat fast or get super hot (I prefer hot temps) than I use the old cookware.

My mother set Boo on fire like 3 days ago with our gas stove.  Evidently his fur just went WHOOOSH and she had to beat him to get it out... our kitchen smelled like burnt hair... and my cat was pissed off.... not for being on fire... but for getting beat, AND for making his fur taste bad.

Our stove doesn't make the clicking noise... isn't that the pilot light starting?? our's is always on... making the stove kinda warm, being why my cat is in LOVE with it... so our stove just goes 'tsssssss FWOOF'

I think our stove only gets used for boiling water though... so I guess it's a waste for us to have one lol... but I hear it's the ONLY way to go if you cook.

yes, the click 3's is the electric start. sounds weird. electric start on a gas stove? well, that was husband's explanation anyway.
