All consumers were excited when they decided to buy an oven. But after reading the thick manual, the enthusiasm cooled by more than half. Many people find it difficult. In fact, the oven is just like ordinary household appliances, it is not difficult to use. It's not that fragile. So today we will learn about the oven from some of the most basic modules. Have a concise understanding of the correct use of the oven.
If this is the first time to use the oven!
Take it easy before you get the oven. The first step is to check that the oven is equipped with tools. The second step is to see what the cleaning steps of this oven look like in the manual. The third and most important step is to bake empty. Why bake it empty? Empty baking can remove grease and residue from the oven. Grease and residue. These are brand-new ovens. The best way to remove is air baking, using high temperature for volatilization. If smoke or odor is found in the empty baking, this is also a normal phenomenon.
During the baking interval, can you open the oven door?
Many beginners like to stay by the oven when they practice for the first time. And they can't wait to witness a miracle. Even repeatedly open the oven door to check the status of the food. You know, every time you open the oven door, it will cause the temperature inside the oven to drop sharply. And it is difficult to recover in a short time. Patience is very important. Otherwise, there will be some problems, such as the filling is not solidified, the center of the cake collapses and the expansion is not complete.
Beware of refrigerated ingredients
The baking temperature is fine after preheating, but the finished product is a little bad. This may have something to do with the temperature of the ingredients. Put the refrigerated ingredients directly into the oven. And it will quickly lower the temperature in the oven by 10 to 20 degrees Celsius. Maybe there is not enough time for the ingredients to rise to room temperature. Then you can increase the preheating temperature appropriately. To be put into the ingredients, and then reset to the actual required temperature.
Leave room for "rising"
For those baking ingredients that add yeast and baking soda, they will continue to expand during the baking process. So it's best to familiarize yourself with recipes before making these "inflatable" foods. Determine the various possibilities and the best "baking position". Leave enough room for "upside".
Don't be in a hurry to cut off the power.
The oven, which has just finished heating, needs some time to dissipate heat. It is best to wait until the temperature of the oven is completely cooled before the power is cut off. When the oven with built-in computer board needs to cool down quickly, the oven door can be fully opened to dissipate heat. But be careful not to half open. Otherwise, the hot air will directly impact the computer board at the top of the oven, damaging the built-in circuit.
The above is the correct use of the oven, it is not so complicated. In fact, as long as you know before baking, when baking is correct, and clean up after baking. But the actual situation in each oven is different. Be sure to fully understand your own oven before using it. Just try it a few more times.
