    I don't think I would. Not so much for the oven, as you'd have to be very unlucky to have it start a fire, but I'd be worried I'd loose track of time and the roast would be dry and burnt.

    Is it a gas or electrical oven? If electric and you have the proper RCD switches installed, I don't think there would be an issue with leaving it on. The oven in this house is electric and both times we've used it, the light in it blows, so it shorts out. The switch just flicks as soon as it does.

    No way. I don't leave anything running that can be turned off e.g. Dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, etc. The main reason is I have four pets who are indoors when I'm not home and I wouldn't forgive myself if I killed them due to leaving an appliance running which could start a fire. h

    I've left an oven on before for 1 1/2 hours while I did school pick up and then went to the kids swimming lessons. Left at 3pm was home at 4:30pm. Didn't really think much about it.

    I wouldn't. We have gas but I don't think I would do it with electric either. However, you could try turning it up for a bit before you leave then turn it off so it stays hot, depending on how long you will be.

    4 mins away - can you duck home a few times? Just for peace of mind?
