Can I Cook on My Gas Fireplace?

A direct vented gas fireplace must be operated with the glass in place. This glass has a gasketed seal that prevents any air from the room from entering the firebox. There are optional “doors” for gas fireplaces but are strictly aesthetics. These doors are mounted on the outside of the glass. When they’re “open” so to speak, the glass is still in place and prevents room air from entering the firebox.

Because of the sealed combustion of a direct vented gas fireplace, cooking with a gas fireplace is not an option. Better stick with the oven, microwave, campfire or grill!
