Help My Mom Figure Out Her New Electric Stove

My Mom just moved into an apartment with an electric stove, the very first electric stove she's had in seventy-one years of being alive. She's finding the learning curve a little daunting. Could you share some tips and tricks that would make the adjustment a little easier, things that you had to learn while transitioning from the gas stove to the electric stove? [more inside]

Old king coal ... burn him!

My cousin long ago found some coal along the tracks and tried to light it in the wood stove. It wouldn't light but now it makes me wonder how you can take a piece of coal or a pile of coal and light it? Maybe I could make a small outdoor oven to bake bread with coal. Any ideas?

Vintage non-electric , gas burner based oven?

A few decades ago there was this enamel coated oven contraption, resplendent with a small glass door that slid down, that you'd put on the gas burner, it would heat up from below and could then be used as an ordinary baking device. It had virtually no inner parts, aside from maybe a coil. They had them in Europe and Israel - what were they called? Are they still made? (It isn't the Wonder Pot).

Why won't my oven burner light completely until it's very hot?

Our 3-yo Maytag oven is misbehaving, and I can't figure out what's going on. Symptoms: when the burner is lit only the 2/3's closest to where it connects to the gas-line actually light. The other 1/3 puts out nasty aldehydes until the thermostat registers about 250 *F. [more inside]

Odd question about electrical ovens.

So, I have an electric oven, and I sometimes make pizza by simply putting it directly on the grate inside. That means, of course, some cheese falls on the bottom of the oven, which I then have to clean. I was thinking about putting in a baking sheet to catch that stuff, but I was wondering if it will affect cooking time? Or increase power usage or something? The coil is at the bottom of the stove.

My oven has a dumb safety feature ... it doesn't get hot.

How long should I cook this brisket?

How-long-should-I-cook-it-filter: I've got a brisket in the oven right now. The plan was to cook it for five hours at 325F. Problem: First time I'm ever using this particular oven and it seems that for the first two hours the oven was only at ~200F. Everything seems to be working normal now, oven is at 325...but I'm not sure how much total time I should cook for to ensure the brisket is cooked through yet tender. [more inside]
