Oven Repair and Baking Tips Provided by Astre Valley Appliance Service in Pompton Lakes
The oven repair man explains issues that can cause poor baking results and a test to be sure a new oven is functioning properly
One little known factor is the pan finish. The local oven repair man says dark pans absorb heat which can cause a browner, crispier crust so they should be used for pies and breads. Shiny pans reflect heat for a lighter more delicate browning so they are great for cookies and cakes. Glass pans absorb heat slowly and hold it well so a lower temperature can be used.
One common error people make is not allowing the oven to preheat. Contrary to popular belief, preheating the oven while it is empty is not a waste of energy. Always preheat the oven for baked goods like pies, cookies and cakes. Preheating is not necessary for meats and casseroles.
Another cooking tip from the oven repair man is oven rack position. For best results, center the rack in the oven for even baking. Placing food too close to the top will cause over browning on top; too close to the bottom will overcook the bottom of the dish. Refer to the owner’s manual for multiple rack baking guidelines.
Other factors that can affect baking results include pan placement and oven “peeking.” Many recipes provide minimum and maximum baking time like “bake 35 – 45 minutes.” Opening the oven too often drops the temperature and wastes energy. The oven repair man suggests waiting until the minimum baking time has elapsed before checking.
Fred Moscatello, owner of Astre Valley Appliance Repair (http://www.valleyappliancenj.com), updates his site often to provide appliance repair and troubleshooting tips. The oven repair specialist suggests a test to be sure a range temperature is calibrated properly. Purchase a quality, name brand, standard white cake mix and bake exactly according to directions with no early peeking! The result should be a perfectly baked cake with even browning.
