  • I do. It does make a difference. If it is recommended, then, I do it.

  • It depends on what I'm making. If it's just meat or something no.

  • Depends what I'm making. If I'm just sticking chicken nuggets in the oven then no.

  • Most of the time I do, innless I’m getting really impatient or feel like whatever i'm cooking doesn't really need the preheat. (like baked potatoes)

  • I wouldn't say that I wait for it but I turn the oven on first before I actually start preparing a meal and it's usually ready when I am.

  • No! Never. Not pre-heating an oven saves energy. I never trust times in recipes anyways, and by adding a minute of cooking or two you can generally save yourself 20 mins of wasted energy!

  • I do to a point, I never put anything in a cold oven, I turn it on, then prepare whatever It is I'm about to cook in the oven
