Ladies was hubby right on this?

My dh was giving me an earfull on how to use the oven.
I am making lasagna and baking a chocolate cake, I put the lasagna at the bottom rack and put the cake on top rack he told me that was wrong and that the heat is not even and the lasagna will burn blah blah blah I told him to go and fix it then so he did...I felt like a little teenager getting scolded but once he got quiet I got to thinking...hmm...he might be right...I just hate to be told what to

Ladies is he right on this?

  • Hate to say it, wanting to stick togther for womanhood and all, but most ovens are hotter at the bottom & would burn anything on bottom rack. Did he arrange it so both could be side by side on the center rack?

  • I don't know, but my husband would rather I burn the shit out of everything than try to correct me in the kitchen.

  • I've baked two things at once if they need the same temperature. Just stagger the pans so they aren't above each other and if you can, switch the pans halfway through baking so the top one goes to the bottom and vice versa.

  • I do this with frozen pizzas, lol. It really doesn't work that well. Let us know how it goes.

  • When I have stuff in the oven on both racks, I stagger them so that they aren't directly above/below each other. This allows for better heat circulation. It's really going to depend on how your individual oven behaves when it comes to using both racks.

  • I'd be worried my lasagna would bubble over on my cake if it were reversed. I use a convection oven, so I've never had a heat distribution problem no matter what I stick in there!

  • You can't stack in the oven, it won't heat the bottom of the upper item right

  • I have never cooked that way. Cake and lasagna cook at different temps and different times.  I cook one thing at a time.

  • i have a gas stove so no matter what i put on the bottom it burns.. always use the top rack.
