Cannot bake cookies in my gas oven

I can bake cookies just fine in an electric oven at the degrees that is according to the recipes but I cannot bake cookies in my gas oven. They burn on the bottom and are not done on top. It is just a waste of time and frustrates me to no end. I really need to know how to bake successfully on this Whirlpool gas range. I sincerely hope that someone out there can tell me how to bake in this gas oven.

    Thank you for your suggestions. I did get the cookies baked and they turned out pretty good. I decided to put the cookies close together and I put another cookie sheet the same size underneath the one with the cookies on it. The cookies did not burn on the bottoms and the tops got done also and I baked them at the temperature required.(375)

First, I would buy an oven thermometer to use in the gas oven to see if the temp you set is what you are getting. Second, Perhaps, you used a different pan or cookie sheet in one vs the other? Also the cookies perhaps should be a little closer together as they bake. A cookie sheet with a lot of uncovered surface will get hotter than one with a bigger load. (ever notice the instructions for biscuits or cinnamon rolls say "sides touching"?, same reasoning. if you put a few rolls on a big sheet or pan, you'll burn the bottoms, gas or electric.) Hope this works for you, when you get happy using the gas, you won't want an electric again.

Please guys help me, every time i baked the cookies , its always burned :(


The oven temperature may be too high. Get an oven thermometer and set it in the center of your oven and check to see if the temperature on your oven matches it. Many ovens run 25 degrees or more off of the set temperature. My mother's oven used to need to be set at 325 if she wanted it to bake at 350.


If the cookies are black on the bottom, but doughy in the centers, this may also be a case where the oven temperature is too high.
Another problem may be that you are baking them too long. Cookie baking is a precise thing. It may seem duh-obvious, but be sure you use a timer, lol. If the recipe calls for 10 minutes, and they are always burned, start checking them at 8 minutes.

If you are substituting honey for the sugar in the recipe, remember to lower the oven temperature by 25 degrees and decrease the liquids by a small amount to compensate. Honey browns/burns much faster than sugar.

Hope these suggestions help. =)

How can i make cake in grill type ovan


Just about any gas grill can be used like an oven. In fact, just about any thing you bake in an oven can be baked on a gas grill using the indirect cooking method.

All you have to do, is preheat the outer burners (one on the right and one on the left). That's assuming you have a 3 or more burner gas grill. to the proper temperature that your recipe calls for. When I say, "preheat", I mean with the grill hood closed. This may take a little longer than what your kitchen oven would. In the meantime, prepare the cake batter according to the recipe's instructions. Once the grill has been heated to the proper temperature. place the cake pans in the middle section of the grill, close the hood and bake the length of time required in your recipe.

Try no to peek to much, as each time you open the grill's hood, you'll lose as much as 20 degrees in temperature. Use time and your nose to determine if the cake layers are done.

All of the above is based on using the grill you listed above. Coleman LG20510E

Happy Grilling!

When baking the oven doesn't bake evenly and always bakes quicker than the time on recipes. Items burn and the middle is raw. Can the oven be recalculated to work better?? John


Electric ovens are always different from gas ovens. You have to set the temperature on average 10-15 degrees lower and watch out 15 minutes earlier if you are baking cakes, 5 mins for cookies etc. Always bake in the centre of the oven. use a metal bowl of water in another tray which may help balance out the temperature

Oven will not heat past 100 degrees. Circuit breaker is not tripped. All other parts of the oven work fine.


Hello there:
It won't bake or even heat up correctly or If your oven won't bake, check these: Bake igniter Other causes Bake igniter Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself. The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame. Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are: The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven). The thermostat is defective. The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective. The selector switch is defective.

The problem is I don't have any instructions. This pastrty press is way old.


maybe this will help :)
cookie presses come in a wide variety of choices; some are even electric, but there is nothing like a good old-fashioned cookie press for the sheer fun of use and the quality of the end product. The Mirro Cookie Press contains a central cylinder with a screw-on end that holds the cookie extrusion plates and tips for shaping cookies and pastries. On the other end of the cylinder is a cap with a large screw running through the center. On the outside of the cap is a handle for turning the press inside the cylinder. The screw is attached to a plate, which pushes the dough through the cookie press shaping plate or tip onto the cookie sheet, and it's ready to bake. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Recipe and ingredients for cookie dough
  • Soft dishcloth
  • Mirro Cookie press with at least one plate
  • Non-stick cookie sheet
  • Spatula
  • Cooling rack
  1. Step 1 Wash the cookie press and the plates in hot soapy water. Handle the press carefully to avoid damaging the threaded ends of the cylinder or the screw-on caps. Dry all parts thoroughly with a soft dishcloth.
  2. Step 2 Screw the pressure plate all the way inside the top cap and screw it onto the cylinder.
  3. Step 3 Prepare the cookie dough. See links below for recipes or look for any recipe labeled "pressed cookies" (sometimes called "spritz" cookies.) Follow the recipe directions exactly as the right consistency is extremely important when making pressed cookies. The dough should be soft but not crumbly.
  4. Step 4 Fill the cylinder with the dough. At this point, if you realize the dough is too stiff, you might try adding an egg yolk. If the dough is too moist, add more flour a tablespoon at a time.
  5. Step 5 Place the extrusion plate or pastry tip inside the bottom lid and screw it onto the cylinder. Turn the handle until the dough is ready to come out of the extrusion plate or pastry tip.
  6. Step 6 Place the bottom of the cookie press on the baking sheet and turn the handle until enough dough has come out to see the shape of the cookie. Carefully lift the cookie press straight up so as not to smear the dough.
  7. Step 7 Bake according to the instructions for the recipe. Let cookies set on cookie sheet for 3 to 5 minutes before removing with a spatula. Place the cookies on a cooling rack.

My oven is burning my baked goods, but shows the right temp with a thermometer. Do I have to turn the dial to broil and then back to the desired temp? Even if the rack is in the middle, everything burns....


If it is convection bake you have to turn the temp down (25 degrees or so) that is listed in the recipe.

The broil setting is not used to bake because it operates differently from the bake setting. So, don't go to the broil setting at all.
The element for bake is under the floor of the oven. You have not indicated whether it is gas or electric, but both of these can have issues with the burner or element.

If you are baking on the correct setting and the oven is heating from the bottom, not the top, this can be caused by hot spots that are created by elements/burners.

to check, look under the floor of the oven. Turn the bake heat up to high and see if the flame is uneven. For an electric oven, the color of the element should be evenly red, no brown spots.

If you are using an oven thermometer, move the thermometer to the spot in the oven that seems to be burning things the most.

Maytag oven overbakes or burns bottom of cookies, biscuits


Try this first, if the temperature is off contact me.
Put an oven thermometer at the center of the oven and set the oven to 350 degrees F.
 
Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.
