Use an oven properly by putting the racks in the right space for different baked goods and preheating the oven to the appropriate temperature. Turn off the oven after using it with advice from a remodeling contractor in this free video on home appliances.
Hey, I am Tim Gipson, I'm going to talk to you about how to use an oven properly. Now, the first thing, depending on what we're cooking, is we want to make sure that we have our racks in the right position. Now, this particular oven is set up where it can actually bake or broil just within this area. So if I'm broiling something, I'm going to use it in, put the racks here in one of the top level areas. Depending on what I'm broiling, and I'm going to use a broiling pan in here. And then, as far as baking, I'm going to go along with what is recommended within the baking. So, if it's cookies, or sheet goods, you may have this on a higher setting. Or if it's cakes, you may have it on a lower setting. Or if you're doing an entire meal, then you have a couple racks where you have this at multiple setting. So the first thing is to determine the based on what you're baking, or cooking, you want to determine your rack positions. Then once you've got that in there, and then you place your food in here, the next thing that you want to do is we want to set our temperature. Now, of course, for anything that you're baking, it's going to have a recommended temperature. And so you want to make sure you preheat. So if it's at three twenty five, we're going to hit the bake, we're going to put three twenty five, and hit the start. And before we place our food in here, we're going to want to make sure that this preheats and that it's at the temperature that we want to. It has, most of your ovens have a time censor built into it. So, I can set my time. And hit that. And hit, again hit the start position, and now I've got my food in there baking with the time. Then, some other features that you have in most of your ovens, you can actually do a delay time. So, if you have a casserole or roast or something that you want to put in, and you want to start it at a later time, it can actually do some delay times. Then of course, the most important thing is that once you are done with your baking, you want to make sure that you turn everything off and particularly in an all in one unit, another thing you can do while you're letting your oven cool is to actually open your door a little bit and let it cool and then you can come back after it's cool and close the door. Now, the other thing to consider that you have in here also, is that a lot of your modern ovens have a self cleaning, where you can actually set this into a cleaning cycle, and it will get very hot and actually bake off the residue where all you have to do is wipe off the surface of your oven. So I'm Tim Gipson, and that's how to properly use an oven.
