Shallower. More like a cookie sheet but the edges come up a half inch or so on all sides. Frankly, aside from roasting I don't fully understand the advantages of using it like you would a regular pan with sides, but I may be missing something.

My former stove used electricity to start the burners and display the oven heat, but if the electricity went out I'm sure I could have turned the gas on and held a match to it and guessed with the oven.

Thanks. That's the way my gas stove works, electric sparks to start the burners, and a digital display that's a clock or displays the oven temperature and is used to set the temperature.

Gas does have its hazards. My bedroom walk-in closet backs up against the kitchen of the unit next door. One evening quite a few years ago now, I came home from work and went to change my clothes. When I opened the closet door, the smell of gas was strong enough to knock you on your ass. The pilot light on the neighbor's stove had gone out.

I'm on my way to the store to pick up ingredients for one of my favorite end-of-summer recipes: fish tacos!!

I'm not sure why it so strongly evokes this time of year. After all, fish and tortillas are available year-round and cabbage is a fall/winter veggie. I guess it is because it is fun to eat outside; how fondly I remember sharing it with you, friend, on the patio of the Table Mountain Inn in Golden.

Good thing you weren't smoking!

Yes, what a nice memory!  :D  And I'd forgotten about the Table Mountain Inn!

My apartment building is above a restaurant and bar. Sometimes I go with neighbor friends down to the bar for happy hour, when their foods include fish tacos for $5 apiece. They're only OK, though. I've realized I prefer my fish tacos batter-fried, which these aren't. There's a slightly nicer restaurant down the street that has delicious walleye tacos but for some reason only sells them in the afternoon, not at dinner.

Do you have to deal with (put up with) cooking smells from the restaurant?
