Vandalism[edit]

I suspect links to "Jewish" and "Hitler" constitute vandalism. Certainly without any context they seem out of place as links from this page.

I tend to agree. Reverted.LizardJr8 (talk) 05:50, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Safety[edit]

Microwave ovens are relatively safer than gas stoves. However, there are significant observations about microwave oven hazards in the article about them, but nothing here about the dangers of gas stoves. 201.36.232.9 (talk) 19:19, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Original Aga not a gas cooker[edit]

'A high-end gas stove called the AGA cooker was invented in 1922 by Swedish Nobel prize winner Gustaf Dalén.'

You can now buy AGAs fuelled by gas, but I don't think that the original was - citation needed here! 109.144.216.156 (talk) 00:51, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Heating, not cooking[edit]

There also seem to be gas stoves used for heating, as alternatives to wood-burning stoves. We need to find some refs and include this. In the longer term such content is possibly best as a separate article, as they serve such differing purposes. -- Trevj (talk) 11:14, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
