This is always frustrating whenever we ran out of gas and we don't have budget to buy new one. Gas price for cooking always increase and its very expensive now. The last time it took a month before it ran out but now it just 20 days only. I wonder why was not the same, perhaps its not the same content. Anyway like we used to do whenever we ran out gas to cook, we get back to old ways of cooking using woods. Its a bit difficult but at least we have save money using this old way. I guess we will used this for a while. How about you? are you still using the old way of cooking using woods? or is still someone of you here loves to use woods to cook?

We use an electric stove to cook. But I have used a woodburner before in my old house, before I got gas heat. I also, heated the whole house with wood for years. It was a lot of work, but to be honest with you, I didn't mind so much and it kept me in good shape. It was great exercise. But the chimney started falling away from the house, and I had a job where I would be gone for about 11 hours of the day. So it just became challenging as a single female to try to keep up with the wood. I see you are from the Philipines. I have some questions for someone in that area, because of a current job offer that I have. If you get a chance to do a friend request and PM me ASAP I would greatly appreciate it. That is if you don't mind helping me out.

When I was a kid we used woods for cooking or charcoal and I do enjoy cooking with it, I guess the foods taste better. I am living in a apartment and I don't think we are allowed to use woods or charcoal and it also we don't have the things.

Well I can remember when I was a little girl my mother did all our meals on a wood fire and they were great meals and she was a better cook than me and I have gas...I guess we just get a bit lazy with all our modern things...

Hello lilaclady, i agree with you its indeed very great meals whenever you cook using fire woods. That is a proven way. If its only faster to use woods then i would prefer to used it forever but since modern life has make things gone faster and so we have to go with the flow with the fast pace environment that we have.

Cooking the old style - Burning Stove
Using woods is just too messy. It takes so much ashes and so much effort but it is always economical. However in this modern day where everyone is just so in a hurry, using the old style of cooking is no longer possible for many. However in some areas, I've seen some people who still have a built-in stove for wood and charcoal at home and they use this as alternative stove in case they ran out of gas or during occasions when they need to cook a lot.

In my home, in cases we run out of gas. We use a charcoal like oven, in which it no longer takes us too much time to burn it. Their is a special design little electric fan with a little currents of electricity which use to blow wind inside and it keeps the charcoal burning. It is better to uses than woods, which I rarely uses, because it gives off ashes and irritates my eyes. Also, have problems blowing, if i never put gas on it..
