Gas range - recommendations & using it with no electricity?
I've never had a gas stove so I'm totally unfamiliar with them. We're installing gas in our new kitchen so I will need to buy a gas range. We have frequent power outages(in the mountains) and I'm wondering how you start them with no electricity?
I'm guessing the oven won't work at all because there's no way to work the thermostat, but what about the burners? Could you use them to heat up soup?
I need a 30" range. What should I look for? Good or bad brands? I'm totally in the dark as far as what options I need. I need something that is not fancy but will hold up to heavy use. I live on a farm and process all our own foods. Lots of canning, bread baking, etc.
Thanks for any input!
