Default Because it sparked my interest ~ Gas ovens

From what I'm reading, a pure gas stove/oven that needs no plug!!!

My BBQ has battery ignition on it. I have to change the battery every couple of years. Our range in the house has a temperamental igniter on it and we just use one of those long lighters on it.

Unless you're living out in the middle of nowhere and every tiny bit of electricity comes at a cost, then I don't see the point. Just get a regular gas range that uses 120 to power things like the ignition, timers, and convection fans and be done with it.

FYI, if you get an oven with convection heating, the time you save baking will likely more than pay for the tiny bit of juice it uses.

Most gas ovens use a small 110v electric element to open the thermo sensing valve and ignite the gas burner.

older stoves used a pilot flame to open the valve and ignite.

I think all gas ranges (top cooking burners) can be lite with a match or lighter without 110v power

Edit:
I looked at your link...your correct it runs off 8 aa batteries, but I wonder how long they last. I think if you are set on no 110v power you would be much better served on a old wedgewood style stove.

No oven light? While not a real necessity, they sure are handy.

Your stove top should work, it just needs to be lite with a match.

No , it has a gas valve that will not open ( just like the wall heater) without 110 power.
Its not that the ignitor wont work , its that the main gas valve in the stove will not open without electric power.

The igniters on our cooktop died years ago. We just use a lighter.

I have replaced the igniter in the oven 3 times over the past 25 years. When it dies again, I'll use a lighter on it, too. We also have a propane camp stove with a bulk tank adaptor, multiple wood/charcoal grills and smokers, etc.

No worries about heating/cooking food at all.

Interesting, Never heard of this. I'm going to check my new stove tonight. In the few power outages we had this winter I cant say if I used the stove before firing up the generator? Thanks for the heads up. Dam lawyers, just cant make things safe enough these days...
