Broiler - gas oven - how to turn on

The gas oven in our 2015 27FB has "broiler" on the oven dial. Is there supposed to be a flame at the top of the oven with this setting? The "broiler" setting does not appear to do anything - flame is still at the bottom of the oven same as when in bake mode.

My wife figured it out. Light the oven pilot. Turn oven dial to "broil". Put the bread (for toast) on a baking sheet at the top of the oven. The side facing down gets nicely brown after a few minutes, flip the bread and repeat.

Toast!

Yes, all the broiler setting does is to keep the burner on full time, not controlled by the thermostat. In general there is enough space below the lower burner on the oven floor to slide a pan of toast or meat in so it is exposed to the radiant heat from the flame which is above it. There is not a lot of clearance for thick things, but toast etc will work.

Not a broiler in the conventional sense.

actually it sounds like old school gas broiler! Elec ovens use the top rack. Older gas ovens have a drawer under the flame. Rvs it's just a space under the flame tube.

Very little. Propane has about 90,000 btu per gal. the burner in the range is probably 9000 to 10,000 btuh. So might take 1/10 gal per hour of use. Lets say you run it for 10 minutes, that is 1/6 th of an hour.

1/6 th of 1/10 th is not much.

My head hurts now.

Sorry about the headache. Thanks for the computations!

Yep a toaster would be MUCH easier than dealing with the pilot light on the oven. We have thought of getting a small 2 slice unit but thinking about it was a far as we got.....

Then we had a hankering for toast last weekend and no toaster onboard hence the quest to figure out the "broiler" setting.

Go watch Downton Abbey - the episode where the first toaster arrived and the butler thought the house had been set afire. His second reaction... that's a solution looking for a problem, what's wrong with doing it in the oven?

We always had toasters - yet whenever there was a slumber party all of the moms made toast for half a dozen girls - under the broiler. Even into the LATE 70's, four slice toasters were generally sold to the commercial market only.

Look for a camp stove toaster - sits on a burner and does toast one side at a time. Stores in the space of a dinner plate, is dirt cheap.
