Question about Ovens
I'm living in a rented apt, and about to move to a new one. The apt I'm renting has a gas stove that has a pipe that brings the gas directly under each of the 4 burners, i.e. the gas travels right up into the small metal bowl that sits under the pot that I put onto the burner.
A few days ago I found near my home a sauter oven built in 1994 that looks rusted and was therefore thrown out by a neighbor. I checked it carefully and it works fine, so I'd like to take it to my new apt when I move, since I can't take the oven I have.
But I noticed that in the oven I found, the gas does not go directly to the small metal bowl. Instead, there is about a one inch gap between where the gas leaves the pipe and that bowl. I wonder why Sauter would build an oven that way. Wouldn't it waste gas, since can't we assume that not all the gas that leaves the pipe will rise in a perfectly vertical fashion and go under the burner. Surely some gas will escape into the air, something which not only wastes money but is also unhealthy to breathe. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
Thank you very much
Yes you are right it wastes money as well as health related problem occurs due to this .
So better call technican to change the lining to minimize the loss .

Just read your problem and I don't think its a good idea to use that, the gas indeed can get out from other places than its supposed to and if you have to light the gas yourself, there might be a small chance of burning yourself a little, especially if the gas is left open.
I would personally find another.
