    Longest Amount of Time You Have Accidently Left the Oven On

    Not saying I just noticed anything at all.... or that this story pertains to me or anything, but what is the longest amount of time you guys have ever left your oven on before realizing it? This story is not about me... it's about this guy I know, who did it, and just noticed it a few minutes before I started typing this.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    hahahahahahahahhahaha i think my worst was 35mins..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I'm hoping someone gets into the "days" category to not make me feel like a complete moron.

    Re: Longest Amount of Time You Have Accidently Left the Oven On

    Made tator tots for lunch at approximately 11am. Came home at around 5 or 6PM and couldn't figure out why it was so hot in my apartment. Then it dawned on me. Man, the gas bill was high that month!

    Re: Longest Amount of Time You Have Accidently Left the Oven On

    My girlfriend once left on a gas oven for approximately 9 hours. The oven was old and had a leak. Let's just say that the dog was sleeping in the other room when she got home and the smell hung around for about 3 hours WITH the windows and door open.

    Im willing to bet that there are a large number of people second guessing themselves and getting up and actually checking to see if their oven is on after reading this post......i know i did

    Hour or two maximum. I know one of my friends roommates put a pizza in the oven about 2 AM while drunk and then got it out of the oven the next morning about 8 or 9 I think.

    The wife does this regularly. She has also burned a number of things all to hell by leaving burners on and setting things on them - including an entire plastic strainer.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    I left a goose in the smoker for 3 days. Wow, was that meat tough!

    Re: Longest Amount of Time You Have Accidently Left the Oven On

    On occaision, just until the end of my meal then I notice when I'm cleaning off the dishes.

    I did have a roommate in college who started a pot of water boiling, and then went to Fareway to buy spaghetti. Of course, that was on purpose, but didn't seem too bright to me.

    Re: Longest Amount of Time You Have Accidently Left the Oven On

    The oven? I can't say for sure, but I wouldn't guess more than maybe 30 minutes beyond what I intended. I once left the grill on for 3 hours though. I managed to burn through an entire tank of propane.

    Yes, I have done this myself. Needless to say the pizza was a little over cooked. It took many days to remove that awful smell. The bad part was my friend woke up a couple hours before me and never thought of doing anything(like seeing why the place smelled horrid). He did proceed to open a window after about an hour.

    Yeah, but you meant to do that, right? It's a good way to clean the grill.

    Re: Longest Amount of Time You Have Accidently Left the Oven On

    Not an oven, but a guy I work with tells a story about his exwife leaving the shower on for 8+ hours. He worked 3rd shift and she was going to take a shower when he was leaving for work. She started the shower as he was going out the door, but instead she went to bed. When he came home the shower was still running.
