Calibrate Your Oven's Temperature

Double wall oven

Ovens may get gradually out of calibration when they're older. Often we will allow for this by adjusting our recipes slightly. When you get a new oven, you should return to cooking your recipes as they were originally intended. When it's time to make an adjustment, you can calibrate your oven's temperature (up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit) instead of altering your recipes every time you cook.

This adjustment does not affect the broiling or the self-cleaning temperature, and is retained in memory after a power failure.

Adjusting Temperature

Calibrating takes a little bit of trial and error. Start by cooking a few different recipes exactly as they're written. If every time the food comes out a little undercooked or overcooked, then it's time to adjust.

To determine how much you want to adjust by, try cooking the same recipe(s) at a slightly different temperature, and compare the results. Keep trying different temperatures until you get the results you want.

To actually calibrate the oven by the amount you decided on, set the Temperature Adjustment in your oven's settings (instructions specific to your model can be found in your user manual).

Now that you've calibrated your oven, you can return to following recipes exactly how they're written.
