I’m new to this site and have been skimming topics. Gotten a lot of amazing info in just a short time.
I caught Hector’s advice to preheat an oven 60 minutes. WOW! That seems like an awfully long time. Is this for gas? Electric? Convection?
I’ve used ovens that beep when fully preheated - and actually show the user a timer counting down the time till fully preheated. To get to 350, the timer reads six minutes. Bear in mind, this is an electric oven.
Just moved to ATL and the (hideously crappy) oven in the home is gas. The oven beeps after 40 minutes. This seems like an excruciatingly long time vs. the electric oven.
In a perfect world, I would have gas cook top with an electric convection oven. Alas right now, we’ve got this very slow gas oven. I want to ensure it’s up to temp when I put any food or baking into it so I wait the 40 minutes till it beeps. Is the 60 minute preheat time prescribed for a reason or does it simply take that much longer for a gas oven to preheat vs. an electric oven?
Question #2 - Anyone seen the Electrolux line? I lust for the double wall oven with convection. That’s SIX TRAYS of Christmas Cookies at once! I’ve been in the presence of one of these beauties and if they bake like they look - it’s likely I won’t ever leave the kitchen.
