The holidays are almost here and so is the mad dash to prepare for the kid’s events, work parties and most importantly… the holiday meals! Grocery lists, to-do lists and even Santa’s list will grow longer while it seems the days get shorter. With everything that’s on your mind, it may be easy to forget a few key things that help make the holidays easier in the kitchen – but we’ve got you covered!


Before you even begin to think about menus and baking, do an appliance checkup. Check anything you plan to use; this includes grills, turkey fryers, ovens, stovetops, refrigerators and freezers to make sure they are working properly. While inspecting your oven, check its temperature, and if need be adjust the temperature using the owner’s manual or repair manual. While you’re at it, give your appliances a quick wipe down to make sure they are looking pristine. In the event you find an appliance is no longer working, you’ll know ahead of time and can make arrangements to purchase something new before the hustle and bustle begins. Don’t forget to make sure you have enough propane to use your gas-powered appliances. No one wants the oven to run out of fuel during the best eating season of the year.


Now that you know everything is ready to go, it’s time to get to cooking. Sometimes it’s easy to forget, but you can cook two things at once, if you position the racks accordingly. When making your menu, see what items require the same temperature and similar baking times and put those two in the oven together. This may call for some rotation halfway through the cooking process, just to make sure everything is browning evenly, but it certainly helps in the long run.


Double ovens are a popular kitchen feature as they allow you to cook dishes simultaneously! Most double ovens operate for efficiency and allow for two separate cooking temperatures. You can have your chicken cooking on 450, while your potatoes are set at 350 in the bottom.


A smaller appliance that packs a big punch when preparing large meals is the warming drawer. Not only is it able to keep food safely heated while you enjoy pre-dinner conversation with your guests, but these drawers are excellent at proofing homemade bread and slow roasting succulent vegetables. They also can create the savory goodness of a slow- cooked beef dish if you just aren’t in the mood for the crockpot.


From Halloween to New Year’s Day, nothing beats the foods of the holiday season. As you prepare for the busyness ahead, come by the Modern Gas showroom and let our team of knowledgeable sales professionals help you get holiday ready. Our kitchen appliances are great investments – not only for the holidays but for every day of the year. Happy Cooking!
