However, even experienced housewives can sometimes make mistakes that compromise the quality of their dishes or even safety in the kitchen.

To ensure a delightful cooking experience, here are five common mistakes that housewives should avoid when cooking with gas.

Neglecting Proper Ventilation: Adequate ventilation is crucial when cooking with gas. The combustion process releases byproducts like carbon monoxide and moisture that need to be properly vented to maintain air quality and prevent potential health hazards.

Make sure your kitchen is well-ventilated, either by using a range hood or opening windows while cooking.

Not Monitoring Flame Color: The color of the gas flame can indicate whether your burner is functioning correctly. A blue flame with a small, consistent, and stable inner core indicates proper combustion.

Using Incorrect Cookware: The type of cookware you use can greatly affect the cooking process on a gas stove. Avoid using pans with warped bottoms as they can lead to uneven heating and potentially waste energy. Opt for flat-bottomed cookware that matches the size of the burner for optimal heat distribution.

This will prevent overcooking and improve the final taste and texture of your dishes.
