Pasta can be very sticky, especially lasagna sheets which are quite thin. My advice is not to drop the sheets into the water all at once, but to kind of layer them so that water gets in between the sheets. You can also add a splash of oil which helps to separate pasta.

How do I cook a frozen 2 lb meat lasagna in my Jetstream oven?

I would start with a slow 250 oven for about 45 minutes. If the lasagna is thawed by then kick the oven up to 350 for another 30 to 45 minutes. Test temperature with a thermometer or knife blade to see if done.

My pasta gone into a solid lump how do i unstick it

Sorting out pasta starts at the beginning. I'll tell you what I do.
1. Get your water on a fast boil 3/4 full in a pot (depending how many you're feeding). A rapid boil is essential.
2. Add some oil (sunflower or olive), about a tablespoon, and the boil will send it through the water.
3. NOW add the pasta, and give it a good stir rather than leaving it in a clump in the pot. Separating it at this point will help ensure there's no gloops at the end. Give it at least two more stirs (at least!) through the cooking. You must separate it to avoid the lumps and clinging together.
4. Cook it for as long as the package suggests, then strain off at the end and serve.
Hope this helps :)

My new oven doesnot cook lasagna through evenly.

Hi Angela,

There are many different possibilities that can cause this issue. From a faulty thermostat, to placement of the food in the oven, or not giving the oven enough time to pre-heat before placing your food item in the oven to be cooked. I have found that on many ovens they can reach well over 450 degrees during the pre-heating cycle. I had a customer who called because her new oven was burning her brownies on the outside and they were not done on the inside. The customer told me that she would wait for the pre-heat signal beep(oven is ready) before putting the tray of brownies in the oven. When I initially checked the oven tempature using a fluke meter and a thermocouple at the center of the oven I found that the oven was close to 460 degrees when the beep went on to indicate the oven is ready! So that is why she was burning her brownies. It took another 10 minutes after that for the oven to stabalize and keep the tempature at 350. So you might want to give your oven 20 or 30 minutes of pre-heating time before you put your tray of Lasagna in the oven. Always make sure to place the food item at the center most part of the oven. And if you are cooking several trays make sure to stagger their position on each rack so they are not right above/below each other. The positioning is important because it can interrupt the natural flow of heat in the oven. So if you let it pre-heat for a half hour and are still having the burning issue then you should have the oven tested for proper calibration to make sure the thermostat is working properly.

Self Locking Oven Door won't open after using oven for baking

The lock motor may have failed. On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam.
