Either you have just bought electric or gas oven or whatever, you should avoid using foil in an oven. This is so because putting a foil in it during cooking can create loads of problems instead of solving your cooking or baking issues. Here, we’ll discuss some of the most common issues which you can experience when placing a foil in a pan or directly using it on an oven rack:
- Even if it’s the best oven for baking cakes, placing a foil on the bottom rack of it can make it difficult to endure the heat. This can permanently damage your oven by melting the foil on it
- As foil can easily reflect heat, it can cause your baked items to cook at a faster rate which can make your recipe simply awful
- If it’s a gas baking oven, putting a foil at the bottom of it can muck up the flame. This can, in result, damage the oven while making your food under cooked
If you are intending to use foil in a baking oven so to prevent a spill, you can use other better options.
Substitutes to Using a Foil in Your Baking Oven
If you are planning to make homemade bread, a baking pie or something else and you believe that it can spill over the pan, you can put the pan on a cookie sheet. This sheet can easily catch the spill without damaging the oven. Later on, you can put both the cookie sheet and the pan in the dishwasher when your baking is done.
In the market, you can get silicone oven liners. It’s the best option because it can withstand heat and are non-reflecting. Keep in mind that silicone oven liners are not appropriate for gas ovens, but they can work perfectly in electric or convection ovens.
Clean the Oven after Every Use
To whatever you choose to use to protect your baking oven, you must remember that the food you’ll cook may leave blemishes. In this case, you should make soap and water solution and use a cotton cloth or a soft towel to wipe out the stains so to prevent them from setting in.
Before buying electric or gas oven, make sure that you know why not to use foil in it.
