    How to Calibrate your Oven

    I thought some might find the following info helpful icon_smile.gif

    - First, buy a new oven thermometer. Some thermometers, especially the dual metal coil types (like the one pictured above), become fatigued over time and lose accuracy. It’s a good idea to replace your thermometer every year.

    - Position the thermometer in the center of the oven so it’s visible through the window, and heat the oven to 350°F.

    - Once the oven signals that it’s at temperature, note the thermometer’s reading every 20 minutes without opening the oven door.

    - When you have four readings, calculate their average by adding and then dividing them by four.

    If the average is between 325°F and 375°F, the oven is calibrated. If it’s outside that range, the oven needs adjustment. In this case, consult the owner’s manual. Calibrating some ovens is as simple as turning a screw, but for others, you may have to call a professional to do the job.
