HELP! I can't figure out my new gas oven!
 
Some of you know that I've moved to Panama City, Panama, a little over 2 months ago. I got this really great apartment with this awesome kitchen in in, brand new appliances and the whole shabang.
I'm from Germany and I have been used to electric ovens and now I have this Frigidaire gas oven (kitchen & appliances provided by the rental company).
I've tried to bake my banana bread now twice according to the cookbook and both time it turned out that it was good on the top 1/3 and below 2/3 was total mush and not baked.
I've asked some of my new colleagues and they said I should put it on the lowest level, lower temperature and bake it basically a lot longer.
Do you have any tricks for me or recommendations? The temperature is in Celsius on this thing and I can convert but still... so far I dumped two banana breads...
HELP! :D

HELP! I can't figure out my new gas oven!
 
P.S. oh my God... probably a very blond moment... just wanted to bake a cake and found this extra baking sheet on the bottom of the oven... that damn thing couldíve blocked the heat from the bottom... will see if this cake turns out normal... and thatís why they have an oven light.., [emoji23]

I'm terrified of gas! I've always lived with electric appliances. I would be a mess figuring it out on my own. Lol

You'll never want to go back to electric once you master the gas.

I LOVE a gas oven/stove top. hate electric.
lol at you mizzy for missing that sheet pan. Holy moly sounds like something I'd do.

you might consider getting a thermometer to give you a more accurate temp reading on the oven.

MizzyMuffling 03-15-2020 09:38 AM

I'm sorry. I couldn't help but laugh. I'm not laughing at you, but I've had my fair share of cooking disasters. Gas cooking is different than electric. I've had both. It's been my experience that gas cooks slower than electric. You have to make sure your oven is heated to the proper temperature before you put anything in it.



Trust me. I burned up some shit when I had to go from gas to electric. Electric cooks faster.

I'm so used to a gas stove that I couldn't cook with an electric one.

sidewalker 09-03-2020 08:37 AM

I would be in big trouble if I had to do electric again. Im still iffy with the gas one hahaha
