Black Gas Range: What Is It?
A black gas range is a type of cooking stove which uses a mixture of carbon monoxide (CO) and oxygen to produce heat. There are two types of black gas ranges: 1) Hallman and 2) Cooker. A cookers is usually used for stews or other hot dishes while the hallmans are mostly used for baking or roasting foods such as meat, fish, vegetables, fruits etc.
Hallman Range vs Cooker Range: Which One You Need?
The first thing you need to decide is whether you want a hallman or cooker range. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Here are some of them:
1) Cooking Hallman Range – The cooking hallman range is designed for use with a kitchen knife.
The cookers are made for use with a spoon or fork. They come in different sizes and shapes. Some cooks prefer the smaller ones because they can fit into tight spaces easily.
2) Cooking Cooker Range – The cooking cooker range is designed for use with a frying pan or wok.
These ranges are usually larger than the hallman ones so it’s easier to maneuver around your kitchen when using one of these ranges instead of a hallman one.
3) Sizes Of The Ranges – The sizes of the ranges differ from a few inches long to larger than a dining table.
The hallman ranges can be compared to small kitchen knives while the cooker ones can be compared to frying pans or woks. Obviously a larger range will take longer to heat up but it will also cook your food faster.
4) Heating Up Time – The heating up time for a black gas range is quite fast.
Depending on the range, it can take anywhere between a few seconds to a few minutes. The time it takes for the gas to heat up is the time you heat up your pans or woks before you start cooking your food.
5) Easy To Clean – The design of the hallman makes it easy to clean because all you have to do is disassemble the parts and put them in soapy water then rinse them off.
If you want, you can also detach the pieces of the range and put them in the dishwasher.
6) Safe To Use – The black gas range is a lot safer to use than the traditional propane or butane stoves.
When using one of those stoves, you have to be careful not to tip it over otherwise it could cause an explosion. There is also a risk of asphyxiation when using those types of stoves.
