Statements from AHAM on Gas Cooking
AHAM Statement on DOE Secretary Granholm's Remarks on the Percentage of Gas Cooking Products that can Meet Proposed DOE Standards
WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 24, 2023) – "AHAM represents the manufacturers of virtually every cooking appliance shipped into American homes. Through our manufacturers' testing and knowledge of their products, we can say with confidence that the vast majority of gas cooking appliances do not comply with the proposed DOE standards. AHAM members have done their own testing, which comprises a larger sample than DOE's testing, and so far, zero products are able to meet the proposed standard. We simply do not understand the claims the DOE is making, because their methodology and statements continually change. Our testing tells another story."

AHAM Statement on the Introduction of the Save Our Gas Stoves Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 21, 2023) –“Passing the Save Our Gas Stoves Act would be a victory for consumers. It will ensure that people can continue to choose the cooking products that best meet their needs — gas, electric or induction. AHAM supports the legislation and thanks Congresswoman Debbie Lesko for introducing it. This legislation will prohibit regulators from setting federal energy standards that would make most of today’s gas cooking appliances unavailable. By voting for this legislation, Congress can show its support for consumer choice and a fair and balanced approach to developing federal energy standards. We look forward to working with Congresswoman Lesko, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and all members of Congress to enact this important legislation.”
