How Can I Test My Oven Temperature For Accuracy?

Last Update Date : Apr 20. 2018

Oven Temperature Test


A 25°F oven temperature variation (+/-) is allowed in accordance with manufacturing standards. This variation is necessary during "cycling" to keep the oven temperature from rising excessively. The temperature variation is normal and desired as is provides natural convection within the oven, resulting in more uniform baking results.

Many oven thermometers purchased in stores do not measure oven temperature accurately. A professional calibrated thermometer is necessary to check the oven. To check your oven temperature, try one of the following in-home bake tests:

Method I


• Prepare a boxed yellow cake mix according to package directions using 8 inch or 9 inch round cake pans.

• Preheat the oven 15 to 20 minutes to the temperature suggested on the package directions.

• Use a middle rack position.

• Allow at least 2 inches between the pans and 2 inches from the pans to the oven walls.

• Bake as directed.

NOTE: The final product should have a smooth to slightly pebbly top crust and should be slightly rounded.

Method II


• Prepare a tube of refrigerator biscuits according to package directions using a flat metal cookie sheet.

• Preheat the oven 15 to 20 minutes to the temperature suggested on the package directions.

• Use a middle rack position.

• Allow at least 2 inches from the cookie sheet to the oven walls.

• Bake as directed.

NOTE: The final product should have a smooth to slightly bumpy finish and browned on the top.
