Well, I am now on my 4th halogen oven, and have whole array of thermometers, and hey all work differently. It is driving me up the wall.
I am trying to work out the right setting for my new oven. I baked something with thermometer #1 and then decided to check with thermometer #2. I took the parts out as quickly as possible so not to lose the heat, dropped the second thermometer in and turned the oven on again, Now, the thermometer #1 continued to show 270degrees, while the #2 would be climbing only very slowly, and in few minutes, the #1 was showing 280 degrees and the #2 was still about 250.
Now, i am running another test, with both thermometer going in cold and starting the oven also from cold … but I am so sick of this. Maybe second look at air dry ?
