5 Tips for Cooking with Propane

So, you’ve got yourself a propane gas range? Get ready to take your cooking game up a notch! Propane offers precision control over heat levels, allowing you to achieve the perfect sear on a steak or simmer a delicate sauce with ease. Here are a few tips to make the most out of your propane-powered adventures!

1. Get Friendly with Your Gas Range

Before you get all Gordon Ramsay in the kitchen, get to know your propane gas range a bit better. Each model has its own quirks, so flip through the manual and familiarize yourself with all the burners and knobs. Understanding how to light them up and tweak the flames is the best way to get started.

2. Team Up with the Right Cookware

Propane gas ranges are all about spreading the love (or in this case, the heat). Use cookware with flat bottoms that match your burners. Make sure to give each pot and pan some breathing room though, that way, you’ll keep things cooking evenly.

3. Master Temperature Control

One of the primary advantages of cooking with propane is its precise temperature control. Learning to adjust the flame to the appropriate heat for various recipes can take time to master. For example, searing requires a high flame, while simmering calls for a gentle, low flame. Practice adjusting the flame gradually to prevent sudden temperature changes that could affect your dish’s outcome.

4. Let the Kitchen Breathe

Cooking can make your kitchen feel like a sauna. Give your space some fresh air by turning on that hood or vent. If your range doesn’t have one, consider installing an exhaust hood to help keep things breezy and odour-free while you cook.

5. Maintenance is Key

Keep your propane stove working at its best with regular maintenance and cleaning. If anything isn’t working as it should, contact us and we’ll have one of our expert technicians take a look.. Safety is important to avoid leaks and we’re here to help. Always remember that propane has an additive smell of eggs so you’ll know immediately if something is wrong and needs attention.

With these five tips in your back pocket, you’ll be a cooking master in no time! Interested in learning more about propane for your home? Click here!
