When cooking Pizza at 220c the top burns-even though the element is on the top and the pizza in the bottom third of the oven, and the base is uncooked - this also takes 30 minutes to cook?

You are using the broiler to cook it,the upper element is the broiler,the lower one is for the oven,turn on the oven so that the bottom element is on,if it doesnt work,then that is the problem

We cooked pizza at 500 something popped and now our oven cooks but not right , any ideas


If you have an electric range, look at both the top and bottom elements while oven is cold. Look for a rough spot like a hole in the element. You may have just burned out one of the elements. Sometimes they go bad without any marks. Turn on oven to about 350 and watch the bottom element to see if it gets red hot. Then set for broil and watch the top for the same red hot glow. If either does not glow red after 5 to 10 minutes, that element is bad.

There are two elements on oven-both at the top.Grill&Element-I am using the normal oven element but my pizza does not cook through only on the top. How do I bake


Hi Michelle,
You need to preheat a heavy gauge baking tray first and then cook the pizza using the main element only. Also experiment with the position in the oven (eg. high or low).

Pizza scorching on bottom


This may sound simple but....Do you know for sure the oven temp is 550 (use a thermometer on the stone to be sure) The thermostat may be set at 550 but could be running hotter? I have had this problem in the past with ovens.

Why does food get hard after cooking or reheating in a microwave


It's basically a loss of moisture during the cooking process, to avoid this in a standard oven cook on a lower temp for longer and cover with foil....in the microwave, drop the power setting and always reheat or cook with the food cover with a microwave safe cling wrap or microwave specific cookware with lids.
Hope this helps.

OVEN WILL NOT BAKE , IT WILL BROIL


I have the same problem, I took off the back panel and noticed that the EOC (electronic oven control) board is blackened and most likley need to be replaced. My wife was cooking a pizza and she smelled a burning plastic smell, she looked in the oven and saw the pizza on fire and smoke bellowing from the control panel area. So i unplugged the oven and saw the circuit board did start on fire and fortunatly it went out before serious damage. No matter what you set the oven on the display shows it as being correct, but only the top element comes on and it is on HIGH!!!! DO NOT BUY FRIDGIDAIRE!!!!

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.

A good pre-heated pizza stone will help cook the crust better when the pizza is placed right on the stone. As for the cheese burning, check the actual temp. of the oven with a good thermometer.
