    I'm not a teacher.

    Hi studyng,

    oven (n) = an apparatus in which electricity or a fuel is used to furnish heat, as for cooking or warmth.
    broiler (n) = one that broils, especially a small oven or the part of a stove used for broiling food

    Ovens usually can use a variety of methods to cook. The most common may be to heat the oven from below. This is commonly used for baking and roasting. The oven may also be able to heat from the top to provide broiling.

    Regards,

    V.

    Re: broiler and stove

    These are all cooking terms. They give instructions for HOW the food should be prepared. You can find information on these words in any cookbook.

    A stove generally will have both top burners and an oven or ovens

    An oven is an enclosed heated space in which food is placed to roast or bake.

    A broiler is effectively the same as a grill - a radiant heat source under which food is cooked. http://www.appliancist.com/blue-star...er-broiler.jpg

    Thank you so much for the explanation and the pic!
    I searched the link below before and can't see the difference of oven and stove from the pics on the page. Black Porcealin O'Keefe & Merritt Apartment Size Stove By Antique Gas Stoves

    I'm clearer now, but only one thing.
    A broiler is a radiant heat source under which food is cooked. What about the oven, does it cook or roast food with heat above, under, from left sides or right sides...

    Re: broiler and stove

    As Anglika said, oven refers to the enclosed space into which the food is cooked. The heat source can be anything at all. You can have convection ovens, microwave ovens, wood-fired ovens. The oven is only the box.

    A stove contains one or more ovens and usually has a cooktop (on which you would heat the soup).

    Otherwise you may have a separate cooktop and oven(s) - separate appliances.
