LOL! Not sure that much of anything other than boiling water would pass my test’s, and even that is questionable. I decided to make spaghetti and garlic bread as our first meal on the new range. I had the humbling experience of surpassing my past all time kitchen low. I did not take into account that the glass top would cook differently than a coil top….<<whispers>> I burnt the noodles. How does one do that? Grumbles…..

I don't know how one does that, but it was an accomplishment worthy of an award of some sort.

Might I suggest you go to your nearest Dollar General and invest in a $1 timer? I use the timer on my stove most of the time if I have something that needs to be cooked for 'x' amount of time. If I have bread in the oven and something on top of the stove, I also use one of those DG timers so both things will be timed.

Smoke alarm's a good idea as a backup.

I think I am getting it down….The cooking surface seems to be much hotter, even at the lower settings. Honey loves it, he and the boys made sugar cookies from scratch last night. I think he is insuring that if they end up with a woman that cooks like me….they won’t starve ;O)

Thank you lil. The only thing I can think is that it was turned up to high and the bottom noodles got to hot. There was plenty of water, so it was surprising to me when I strained the water that the bottom ones were burned. I can cook….its just not something that I do with a guaranteed outcome, and is a nonstop inspiration for joke’s ;O)

Getting the hang of it I think….I have a few dinners under my belt now, and I think its that the surface temperature gets much hotter at lower settings than our old one did. I find it hilarious that my defense most of the time is,“At least I can cook Hot dogs and Mac & cheese!” As a *joke*….and the first thing I burn on the new stove, noodles…sigh.

Hey Water! Good to read you. How are things in your slice of the world my friend?

Honestly do not know a thing about thoses type of stoves.Your most probably right about this.I'll share how I cook thoses noodle.Water of course just a dash of cooking oil,dash of salt and noodles set to cook but keep in mind everyone cooks differently.I have a idea you are a good cook plus your a good sport over the playin and messin with you.Fellows tend to hang out where the cookin is good.

Once you get used to using a timer, your life simplifies exponentially! I still check on things like bread/cakes/pies, but for almost everything else I've got the timer thing down to an art form. What you'll find after starting to use a timer is that each range cooks slightly differently. The oven I have now bakes faster than the one I had before. Therefore, I have to lower the temp 5-10 degrees for certain things to make sure they bake correctly. You'd be amazed at how much better things turn out when the temp is correct and you can help find out whether it is or not by using a timer. Noodles, too!

A hoplite was a citizen-soldier of the Ancient Greek City-states. Hoplites were primarily armed as spear-men and fought in a phalanx formation. The word hoplite derives from hoplon, the type of the shield used by the troopers,[1] although as a word "hoplon" could also denote weapons held or even full armament.
I once injured myself using a spatula.

Thanks for the tips here.I live in a high altitude area too expect this would make a differences too.Can you tell me if cast iorn cook ware would make a difference too.Do not know about the temperature of them as my cook ware is cast iorn.This should be some kind of adventure for me.Just hope I do not start burning things up learning.

Water boils at a lower temperature at high altitude, so things cook more slowly up there. Leave 'em on a bit longer.

As for cast-iron, I love the stuff - once it's seasoned, nothing ever sticks to it. Just wipe with a paper towel and warm soapy water - don't ever scrub it.

It takes longer to heat up, too, but it's a wonderfully even heat. No worries about hot spots.

Plus, it's bulletproof, and handy for braining intruders.
