SOURCE: Oven not cooking evenly, outside is getting brown but inside is undercooked

Sounds like the igniter is not operating at full capacity. What happens is that the oven does not light when it should. Instead, the oven is cooling down much too far so when the oven does light it has too heat more rapidly. This causes the outside to brown/burn long before it should.

How do i fix an oven that bakes unevenly


the cooking I can't help with, but the oven I can.

sounds to me like the bottom element or what controls it is not working. the reason the ones on top are cooking is that the top element is coming on and browning them on top after the heat has made the dow rise and cook.
so essentially everything is cooking from the top down. so when the temp drops its using the top element to heat with and thus browns the top rack.

check ur elements to make sure both work, if so, move on to the thermostat which I have to be the culprit many times.

I'm so tired of this! Everything I bake is overcooked/burnt on outside and not cooked on inside. IE..banana bread, cookies, muffins. I have two gauges that are telling me that the temperature is correct. I...


The cheapest would be to go buy an oven thermometer. A couple of dollars. Set oven at 350. Put thermometer on the oven rack. Put in a cake pan, etc with water in it. Let be 15-30 minutes. Then read the thermometer. You can tell by how much it is off.
Really, what might have to be replaced is the thermostat. That constantly trying to kick in would be the ticking noise.

When I cook my Victoria sponge cake it does not rise is my oven


Well, your temp seems about right, but you may need to experiment. A good thermometer helps in gauging temp, ovens are notoriously inaccurate. All oven are different, but it is usually recommended to go down 25 (15C) degrees from the recipe if you use convection. The type of pan you use has an effect. Glass needs to be 25 degrees less, and nonstick/dark pans brown faster than the insulated type. Make sure that you fully preheat as well, or the bottom may burn. Other than that, convection cook times are less if the bake time exceeds 15 or 20 minutes. Thanks for your question, sorry I can't give a more precise recommendation.

KitchenAid Oven Temp.- Bottomside of Pizza or Cake stays uncooked


I have a 2yo Kitchenaid oven, and my advice is first, don't use convection for cakes or pizza. Use the thermal oven. For pizza preheat to 500 degrees, then put the pizza on the lowest rack, and bake for 7-8 minutes.This way the bottom browns, and the top doesn't get broiled from the top element coming on during the bake cycle.

As for cakes, again place them on the low rack so that they get bottom heat. I keep my eye on the oven and when the broil element comes on I stick a piece of foil over the cake until it goes off. Otherwise it will set the top and the cake won't rise as much. Even doing that cakes don't rise as much as they did in my old oven, and they brown too much on top.

The convection oven does a good job of cookies, and the broil mode is okay.

I wish I hadn't bought this oven, but I didn't know about the upper (broil) element coming on during the bake cycle until I'd had it for awhile, and it was too late to return it.

If anyone's shopping for an oven, ask questions, and don't get one that maintains the oven temperature by activating the broil element when baking.

this is a common complaint on lower end ranges if you read the cooking instructions on the food it will say cooking times are approx you may have to adjust for your area that and your owners manual are your best bet on this promb adjusting the position of your racks help but forced like convection are the best way to go
