How do you use the broiler to cook steaks on electric stoves and should you leave the oven door cracked open a little bit?
Answer Most electric stove manufacturers will recommend that you leave the stove door open when you are broiling. Put the steaks in a broiler that has the slots,… then put the shelf up high enough that the steaks are about 6 inches from the heating element.
First of all it will waste a tremendous amount of electricity. The heating elements will probably over heat trying to heat a room rather than a small space like the insi…de of the oven and an oven get much hotter than a space heater so you could set something on fire.
a) so that it doesn't get in your way when your taking thing out. b) gives you a surface you can put hot things down on.
Glass oven doors are commonly double-glazed to keep the efficiency of the oven. Otherwise, the heat would leak out. These are sealed units, and there should be no need to clea…n the inside of the double-glazed unit. As for char etc baked on to the inner surface of the unit, normal domestic cleaners should prove adequate. But beware of any treatment that would scour or mark the glass surface. As this could cause failure of the glass, which is usually tempered glass.
A grill is designed to heat the food from one direction; I'd imagine from the top in your case. If you close the door the heat builds up inside and it just cooks the food …like an oven would. Since it is not designed to do that (ie. there's no thermostatic control), there's also a chance it could overheat and become damaged. Some more modern grills do not need to be left open whilst in use. These use a fan to extract the hot air building up inside, and draw in cool air. Refer to your instruction manual if in doubt.
No, although the short-term effect would be for the refrigerator air / freezer air to mix with and cool the air in the room. The function of refrigerator is a heat exchanger…; it removes heat from the inside of the fridge and pumps it to the outside of the fridge. If we open the refrigerator door, it will remove the heat from the air that mixes inside, but then will exchange the heat back into the kitchen. That's why the room can't be cooled for a long period. In fact, due to waste heat, the room could become warmer once the refrigerator contents have reached room temperature.
This is by both radiation and convection.
No, in-fact this act will increase the temperature, and increase your electric bill. A refrigerator cools its inside by getting ride of the heat out the back, into the same k…itchen area. Opening the refrigerator will for short time cool part of the area around the open door, but even more heat will be created by the electrically driven cooling device that gets ride of it's excess heat into the the kitchen. Once the outside air starts to warm it's interior, the refrigeration unit will go into overtime trying to cool the interior. Thus you created a loop effect of heating and cooling the same air, and electricity is wasted in doing so.
If oven was recently used, heat will radiate when opened. Most of the heat escaping from an oven when the door is opened is by convection, not radiation.
Because somebody will steal your car. Thought that one was pretty obvious.
When a kitchen oven cools does the same total amount of heat go into the room with the door open as with it closed?
Yes - it just does so much more slowly with the door closed.
No, you shouldn't. Most ovens are built so that you can't. Opening the door turns off the oven. If the door were opened with the oven is running the microwaves aren't shielded… and they could harm someone standing in front of the oven. Yes, you can but it instantly stops generating microwaves. As no microwaves are generated with the door open, a properly working microwave can't hurt anyone.
Could you cool a kitchen by leaving the refrigerator door open and closing the kitchen door with windows open?
Whether you could cool a kitchen this way depends on whether you could get the heat coming off the external coils out the windows and whether the air outside is cooler than th…e exterior coils of the fridge. In all likelihood most of the heat coming off the coils would stay in the kitchen (rather than going out the windows) and rather than cooling it, you would heat up the kitchen while the refrigerator compressor continued to run (until the compressor burned out from continuous operation). Remember that a refrigerator cools the inside of the fridge by pumping the heat out of the interior of the fridge and into the room - in this case the kitchen.
Should a smoke alarm positioned in hallway be activated when the oven door is opened in the kitchen distance 3 to 4 meters?
It depends on the position of the oven, oven door, kitchen door and shape of house.
