Stove Covers or Noodle Boards are becoming more popular, and while you might still be asking yourself how safe are they and how do I care for one if I choose to get one?
My grandmother had a noodle board when I was a kid. She used it for kneading dough, baking, and any cooking or food prep she needed more workspace. She used it wherever she had room, usually on the stovetop or the kitchen table.
Stove Covers are becoming more popular, and while you might still be asking yourself are they safe?
The quick answer is yes.
While my grandmother was a very cautious person in her kitchen gas stoves have become more modern since my grandmother was cooking.
Just to make sure your stove is safe to have a Stove Cover we are going to address a couple of the common concerns we get.
The pilot light will catch the stove cover on fire
The stove cover will cause gas buildup
Exposure to heat will cause a fire
While pilot lights are a common feature of older stoves, newer stoves might not have them.
Most newer gas ranges and ovens don’t have pilot lights. Instead, the gas is ignited by an electric ignition system. In this type of system, an element becomes hot and glows like the filament in a light bulb when an electric current passes through it.
As always make sure to check if you have one before using a noodle board.
