We've all seen the drawer under our stove, but what is it really used for? The answer may surprise you.

The drawer below your oven should be used for keeping things warm. No, it's not designed to be used for storage.

The warming drawer is there to keep food warm until you're ready to serve. Like many of you, I too have misused this space. When it comes to keeping food warm prior to serving I often use the microwave---WRONG!

This drawer below your stove can often come in handy when cooking large meals.
