Angry How long does it take to warm up your stove?

It takes 30 minutes to preheat the oven to 400 deg Fahrenheit (about 204 Celsius) what a piece of junk. Need a new stove!

How do you add a poll here? Wanted to ask how long does it take to warm up your stove to that temperature. Aha, hear it is.

P.S. i have glass top gas Kitchen Aid.

I see you figured out how to do a poll!

My problem isn't warming the oven up... it's cooling it down.
Sometimes the silly fan won't go off for an hour. And it's loud!

I've never timed it, but I doesn't take more than 10 minutes to heat up to any temp I've ever used, up to 425 F. Frigidaire glasstop... I love my range.

Yea! You finally got a new oven/stove!

I have a Maytag gas oven. It's about 6 months old. I've never timed it but it probably takes about 10 minutes to heat to 400. I've been really happy with it so far.

Mine is an electric Moffat. Never had trouble with it except blowing out the element on the day before Easter Sunday!!!

I've had my oven, a glass top(electric) Frigidaire, for about 5 years now & it only takes 10 minutes, 15 tops, to pre-heat.

pdswife - when you post a new thread, scroll down before you hit "submit' and you'll see where it asks you if you want a poll. Click on that, but also type in how many things you want on the poll (max is 10).
I've learned the best way is to type out every option on an email, then copy/paste it onto the poll. (this is because once you've clicked submit, your question goes into new posts. Then it's time to make the poll. If you wait too long, folks will start to wonder where you poll is!)
Hope that made sense!

Yep we got a Frigidaire gas stove for cheaper than they were selling it for because the only one they had left was the floor model and it had a small scratch on the side. No big deal to me.
