Now, let's move on to using your cooker. There's a popular saying that goes, "if the purpose of a thing is not known then abuse is inevitable". Well we can also say that if the abilities of a thing are not known it would never reach its full potential.
Cookers can do so much that just boil your food. When you know how to efficiently use your cooker only then would you enjoy it to its full potential. It's not a surprise that you would want to fully enjoy that which cost you money. That is why I would be discussing this topic today.
I would be talking about the gas cooker majorly. This is because people tend to get gas cooker rather than electric cooker, which is obvious because if the light situation that we have in our country. Getting a gas cooker is more economical for us and offers so many benefits.
Some of which are:
* Immediate responsive heat.
The reason most kitchens use gas cookers is that they can easily control the heat. With a simple turn of the dial, the flame gets bigger or smaller so that the change in heat is immediate and precise. There’s no long wait for the pan to heat up or for it to cool down, saving time and ensuring dishes aren’t spoiled by the slow response.
* Even heat distribution.
Electric cooktops and the pans used on them need to be perfectly flat or the heat won’t be distributed evenly across the cookware. The flames on a gas cooktop are central so that they heat pans evenly, with no cool spots and without scorching them.
* Unaffected by power outage.
Just imagine preparing a sumptuous meal and suddenly the light goes off. However, if your electricity is cut by inclement weather you can usually still cook on a gas cooker as gas lines tend not to be affected by the kind of weather that can cause electrical power outages.
* Less wasted heat.
Electric cookers emit more heat than those powered by gas, generating excess heat in your home. Gas cookers on the other hand gets extinguished as soon as you turn them off and the heat source vanishes. This is not so with an electric cooktop, which continues to emit heat after it is switched off.
These are some of the benefits of using a gas cooker. Very necessary to put it into consideration before getting a cooker for yourself. That being said, let's talk about using your gas cooker for the very first time.
Using your gas cooker for the first time
Gas cookers are valued for their quick heating response and simple temperature adjustment. However, if you have never used a gas cooker you may feel a little confused when first operating one. But once you get the hang of using a gas stove, you would find out that they are quite easy to use.
Most gas cookers today are equipped with a auto ignition knob that lights the burner, and if not you can easily use a match stick or a lighter. You can usually adjust the heat to low, medium, and high depending on what you are using the cooker for. Twist the dial and wait for the burner to light, then adjust it to your desired heat setting.
While there's a popular scare about having a gas cooker in the house due to fire hazard, there can be a way to enjoy your gas cooker fully without experiencing any mishaps. There are some key safety tips that you should know when it comes to using a gas cooker.
Here are some of them;
* If after trying to ignite your gas cooker the flame doesn't come on, stop and turn the knob off. It will prevent any accumulation of gas inside your house. This is one major reason for fire hazards in the home today, and if we can correct that there would be reduced incidence of explosions in the home.
* When you have finished cooking, immediately turn the flame off. Rotate the cooker's control knob completely towards the left. Remember to turn it as far as possible to the left to prevent any leaking.
* Before attempting to use your gas cooker, if you smell gas, don't light it. Keep the kitchen aerated to disperse the gas quickly and check for possible areas of leakage. You can then light your cooker one the smell of gas has gone.
The above are just a few simple tips that would go a long way in ensuring your safety at home, if you would keep to them.
There's always a few of us that loves to bake, grill and just want to use the oven but might not know how to. For you guys I would briefly talk about using your gas oven for the first time.
First thing to do as soon as you get your gas cooker is to use warm soapy water and a cloth to scrub down the racks and the insides. Then you need to "Burn- in" the oven, this is one of the most important initial steps to take when you want to use your gas oven. This helps to eliminate all the foul chemical odors that can permeate the food when you cook it.
All you need to do is to heat your new ovens at around 400° F for approximately 30 minutes. You may need to repeat this process until the smell of chemicals is eliminated entirely. Doing this would ensure that your gas oven is safe to use.
Next thing is lighting your oven. You must first find the pilot light, located at the bottom of the appliance. Just open the door and look inside to find a small piece of metal located right in the center. Then, use a match or a lighter to ignite the device through the pilot light hole. A blue flame is then generated which indicates that the oven can now be used.
Then, depending on how you want to cook your food, it is recommended that you place the tray on the bottom shelf to make more direct use of the heat. However, if you don't want it so hot, you can place it on the top shelf. On the other hand, placing food right in the middle is also a good choice if you prefer more even cooking.
Now you know the basics about using your first gas cooker and using it safely. Unto looking for where to get one and I've got you.
