What the drawer at the bottom of the stove is for: could be three options
We've never wondered what the drawers at the bottom of the stove or oven are for. Housewives use it as an extra place to store dishes.
It turns out that these small drawers have different purposes. OBOZREVATEL found out what other functions they perform.
There are different kinds of drawers, so it's worth finding out their purpose before you buy one.
This kind of drawer will keep your food warm until guests arrive. When the oven is running, it gives off heat, which heats the drawer, so the food in it won't get cold or "overcooked."
Housewives can also use this warm place to raise dough or reheat plates before serving, like in a restaurant. However, don't leave dishes or utensils in there for more than an hour. During that time, the food may dry out and the plates will be too hot.
The bottom drawer can be equipped with an extra grill. This is not common, only in some models, but they are difficult to find in our market. Before using it, read the instructions carefully.
Do not store foreign objects in the drawer, as this can cause damage to the equipment.
Cookware storage area
This is the bottom drawer option we are most familiar with. It will save you space in your cabinets. You can store bulky utensils here, such as a frying pan or baking dish. They usually take up a lot of space, and we don't know where to put them.
But don't forget to put a non-stick felt cloth between the dishes, it will help avoid scratches on the surfaces.
You can not store plastic products in such a drawer, as the heat from the oven can melt the dishes.
