I was broiling our fish last night and DH asked, "what are you doing there?"

I take a wooden spoon to "prop" open the oven door just a bit when I broil something, that way more of the heat stays in the hot oven and therefore a quicker cooking time

I keep the oven door closed while broiling. Works great.

Hmmm, when I close the oven door when broiling, the elements go off... am I doing something wrong?

I never heard of that either. Does it have something to do with it being an electric oven? At any rate, you won't have that problem with your brand new gas stove when you move Kgirl.

Ovens are different. Follow the manufacturers instructions.

I have read in an oven manual to leave the door open a crack when using the broiler.

Me too. When I moved in here, the manual for the stove was in a drawer in the kitchen. They instructed to prop it open with a wooden spoon handle when broiling meat.

Both my range oven and my toaster oven have stop points that keep the door open all by itself just enough for proper broiler operation. My dishwasher has the same sort of fixed opening to allow air drying without leaving the door all the way open. Since I usually run the dishwasher when I'm done in the kitchen for the day, I usually slide both trays out and let things air dry all hanging out.

None of my new appliances came with their manuals,
nowadays you just download it from the manufacturers
website...
Which reminds me, I should be a nice person and
print those out and leave them in the kitchen drawer like Addie said.
I hope that who ever buys our home will enjoy
it as much as we have, and I hope that's it SOON!!!
