We all are so much habituated to use the oven in our kitchen that comes in handy for baking snacks and favourite foods often. But it is also important to avoid a few things and be cautious while using the oven regularly. Here are a few tips and things you need to look after for frequent usage of oven baking and cooking.
1. KNOW YOUR OVEN COMPLETELY
Not knowing about your oven fully how it functions and works may let some mistakes to happen while baking. Get to learn the usage of your oven to the deep. Avoid baking at the corners or edges and instead, bake only in the middle of the oven itself.
2. DO NOT EVER FORGET TO ADD A KEY INGREDIENT
Imagine you forget to add up flour but added sugar and butter for baking cupcakes in the oven. You may add up the substitute ingredient but that doesn't end up with the exact taste of the dish you prepared. Always keep the required ingredients on hand to avoid taste disasters for the dishes.
3. AVOID USING HOT TRAYS
Always cool down the tray for every batch by running it through the cold water and dry it for the next set of baking. If the tray stays hot, the dough may melt and spread across spoiling the shape of the cookies or biscuits.
4. DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN DOORS WHILE BAKING
Often it's our habit to check or test up on the cooking or baking process by opening the oven doors in the middle. Stop doing this so that the cakes do not get sunken or sticky without complete baking.
5. NEVER USE YOUR INGREDIENTS AT A WRONG TEMPERATURE
Always make sure to use the ingredients for any particular dish at the mentioned temperature while baking to avoid the dish spoiling. Remember to use only the temperature that the recipe requires.
