Does it light whilst the door on the oven is shut? If so, it'll be fine if you fan out the oven.

How long was the gas on for ? It would disperse fairly quickly if you have opene windows & doors

have left oven door open. was like it for about 5mins, have left it now about 5 mins. no smell at all now.

I think it will be fine...

Agree would probably leave an hour, although I doubt it's really necessary. I did this once & was dead scared to turn on light switches or anything for ages after. Certainly opening doors & windows is best idea.

I'm sure I talked to my dad afterwards and gas used on domestic hobs & ovens is pretty safe compared to calor gas, so doubt it would really be long before safe.

Hope someone can be more definite!

Oh the amount of time it took me to type that, a million other people have given much more sensible advice!
