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)


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. (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! (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)

How sad[edit]

What a sad little article this is. The brief leading paragraph states that "most modern stoves come in a unit with with built-in extractor hoods". I have never seen a gas stove here in the UK with its own hood. Many people fit a hood over cookers of all types - to remove grease, smells etc - but that is part of the overall kitchen, not the gas cooker.

The whole section about Aga cookers is redundant as they were not powered by gas until 1968 (and oil-fired in 1964) with the decline in solid fuel according to

The longest section is about various types of ignition and could easily be shortened to half its current length.

A major factor in the acceptance of the gas cooker was the introduction of the oven thermostat in 1915 (or 1923, according to the National Gas Museum) which allowed cooking at a selectable temperature. This is not even mentioned. (talk) 13:52, 30 December 2014 (UTC) Moriarty
