  • Placement of oven racks?
    I was watching Paula Deen and I've notice she ALWAYS has her oven racks on the very bottom shelf no matter what she is baking. Is this just for looks or does she really put cookies, cakes, pies etc on the very bottom? About 99% of my foods are cooked in the middle of the oven.

    I always use the bottom rack. Gas stove.

    I always use the middle rack unless I am broiling and then I use the top rack. I never use the bottom rack as it seems to make the bottoms of cakes, etc. too dark.

    Really depends upon how your oven cooks. The range I have now, is extremely hot at the bottom, so for most things, I have to use the top rack or switch racks halfway through (although, the bottom rack is great for pies--the bottom crusts cook beautifully).

    I imagine that the main reason PD uses the bottom rack, though, is for visibility for the camera.

    Glad to know this, I just knew my oven would burn the bottoms really bad if I did that.

    THANKS
