Well, am surprised b/c my oven is calibrated correctly-thought it ran cold. For first test, the sugar melted. For second test, it barely browned around the edges. Thank you Chocolatl for a very interesting "recipe".
Found out that my oven runs cold and my toaster oven runs hot.
Well, my oven runs a bit cold and, though you can't tell in the photo, the sugar browned a bit but didn't melt. This was interesting as I wasn't certain, before, which was wrong, the external oven thermometer or the internal oven thermometer.
It really works!! Knew my oven was a little off so started with the test for running hot and the sugar melted. Then just for fun did the test for running cold and the sugar burnt. So what I knew before has now been proven my oven is running a little on the hot side. But given the age of my oven guessing I would be a little hot about still having to work also. Thanks so much for the post.
My oven melted the sugar at 325 and then turned brown. lowered it to 300 and waited a few and it is still melting. I would say my oven is way off.
Exactly the info I needed! After many years with no problems, I suspected my oven was suddenly running cold, and I was right! The sugar melted at 400, but not at 375. Thanks for the easy and clear directions!
