“Fiercely hot gas oven”

Written on: 10/04/2013 by Lindabeazley (1 review written)

Biggest mistake was choosing a gas oven. It's very much for chefs/French cooks because even at the lowest setting you can't cook casseroles, fruit cakes, meringues etc. It is fiercely hot, especially near the heat source at the bottom, and consequently I don't generally cook more than roast potatoes in that oven. Despite all my research I wasn't warned about this. Have never managed to satisfactorily clean the gas burners which detracts from the appearance.

Ps to clean the brass burner hats soak them in a 50/50 solution of lemon juice and vinegar for a few hours then scrub with a nylon scrubbing pad and rinse with water.

As the gas oven runs on commercial, not domestic temperatures, it is designed to reach far higher temperatures; this is a feature not a fault. You are correct, you cannot cook a casserole or a meringue but it is about using the right oven for the right thing. The gas oven is far better than the electric for searing meat for example. The gas oven is also not mandatory, the cooker can be ordered with two electric ovens instead. As per my review of my 15 year old Cluny, I think people must do their research before buying Lacanche; they are not cookers for people who cook oven chips, but for serious cooks. I do agree however about the brass burners, mine were long since a shiny brass finish! (I think the new models no longer have the brass burners.)
