    Gas oven and browning

    I got a gas oven with heating at the bottom only. So how do I brown the top of say focaccia, bread, pizza? Higher in the oven to use reflective heating. Lower temperature to give the top more time to brown? I cleaned the supply pipe of this oven and it is working pretty good again (at one point...

    How long to preheat your oven?

    I set my oven to 425F/about 220C, and just happened to glance at my phone for the time of day, and made a note to check how long to come up to temperature. Exactly 30 minutes! 3-0! A full half-hour! Had you asked me to guess, I would have said, “Oh about 10 minutes, I don’t know…” Turns...

    Bought new 4-qt Enameled Dutch Oven!!

    Bought & received THIS pot from Amazon. It's an enameled cast iron one. Wanted one, but I didn't want to pay a lot of money for one, as in the case of LeCrueset or other top-shelf brands. Now I know that you get what you pay for, but I just wasn't paying too much money for one. Just wasn't going...

    Convection oven done cheap!

    Look how much money I saved on making my own convection oven. 😂 It's a fan blowing around hot air, this is aimed in the oven, its just a little further away. 😂

    How do you know with oven time and temp?

    I heard, mostly when in doubt, 350 will do, and that works fine, for most things, but not all. I also know that certain things have to be very precise with time and temp, but how do you know when you're doing your own thing? Like, a homemade pizza at 425 for 20 minutes or 450 for 15 minutes. I...

    Recipe Oven Roasted/broiled pork Char Siu

    The original recipe is from butteryourbiscuit.com. I've made a few changes, mostly technique, to make things easier. Make sure you use the red food coloring though as it does add something, just like in red velvet cake, even though she says it doesn't. Going to look for a picture of the whole...

    Would anyone want to buy this oven?

    Who would buy this oven if you had to make this much bread?! The brand is Rack Master. It's big & expensive, costing as much as $8,000 or more, & it can be bought at http://www. pleasenthillgrain.com. I wouldn't buy it! Too big & expensive!! You'd also have to have a 208-volt line put in, if you...

    In Hawaii, Kalua Pig or Pork is made in an underground pit oven or Imu. Where we lived in Kaneohe, our neighbor had a permanent Imu in their backyard and the entire neighborhood knew when ever they stoked it up. We were always welcome to add in our share to the lot. Also, you could get a 12...

    Review BK Cookware Dutch Oven

    I love my dutch ovens. It's my desert island cooking vessel. I love the versatility. There isn't a lot that can't be prepared in a dutch oven. In the past, I've owned enameled cast iron ones; either Lodge or Tramontina. Both performed well, and I never really saw the need to "upgrade" to a...

    Double oven

    Hi All New to this forum and new to double ovens. Like most people I cook a variety of things, stews, joints etc and dare I say frozen chips. I am confused as to which oven to use for what. The way I see it if the smaller oven takes less heating then it will be cheaper to run, so if I only have...

    Conventional & Convection (Fan) Ovens

    This might be interesting, considering the international mix we have here. What's your oven situation? Conventional, convection (fan assist) or both? Traditionally, I think Americans have leaned far more toward conventional ovens, UK/Europeans more toward convection ovens, though now, here at...

    Do You Use Your Oven Light?

    At first, I thought this was a bit of a superficial question, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized, I rely on my oven light quite a bit. Mainly, it lets me monitor what I'm baking, so I can tell right off whether my bread has had that oven spring, or how the top of my pizza is...
