Oven Temperature Too Cold or Too Hot

The oven provides accurate temperatures; however, it may cook faster or slower than your previous oven.

It is normal to notice some baking or browning differences between a new oven and an old one. As ovens get older, the oven temperature can shift, this could indicate the oven temperature is either too hot or not hot enough.

IMPORTANT:  Do not use a thermometer to measure oven temperature.  Burners will cycle on and off as needed to provide consistent temperature but may run slightly hot or cool at any point in time due to this cycling.  Opening the oven door will affect cycling of the burners, impacting the temperature.
