Gas Stoves We have 2 gas stoves in our classroom. It is important that you know how to use them properly. To start, push the dial in and turn it to light as soon as it lights turn it down. Make sure that the dial is not left between the off and the light labels – the gas is on and could cause a fire if turned to light. Do not lean against the front of the stove so you do not accidentally turn it on.
