It helps to have an oven with Shabbos-mode. That was the main reason we bought a Kitchen-Aid oven. (The feature is actually most useful on Yom Tov, but can be useful on Shabbos, too.)

We bought our oven in 1999, but I've heard that other brands now offer Shabbos mode.

So what does a Shabbos mode do? Does it keep the oven constantly on, or turn it on with a timer whether you use it or not?

The reason I ask is because I wonder whether you think it's moral to waste energy and contribute to global warming, thus jeopardizing the future of our children and all of humanity. For example, I think Shabbat elevators are a greater sin than pressing a button to call the elevator when you need it. (And why pressing a button on Shabbat is worse than walking up six flights of stairs is incomprehensible to begin with).
