Buttons < Knobs

Posted on Wednesday, October 18th, 2023

Dave!Remember when ovens had a knob you turn and the heat came on and cooked your food?

Now you can only get these stupid-as-shit electronic button boards, and so often when I set mine, IT JUST SHUTS OFF WITHOUT COOKING SHIT! Ironically, you can get knobs if you get a gas stove (not an option where I live) or buy a super-expensive one (which I can't afford).

This blows.

I don't understand why burners have knobs and it's no problem, but ovens are all getting idiotic electronics. I'm guessing it's a cost-savings thing but, if that's the case, then why aren't the burners getting electronic panels as well?

Everything is shitty and nothing makes sense.

    My guess is that it’s because with electric burners, you can set a specific temperature and digital is good for that. But with gas and the fact there’s an actual flame that varies in intensity, you cannot set a temperature aside from high, medium, low, and simmer with the acceptance that those are mere approximations. So giving someone a digital control that promises specific temperatures would be a misnomer.
