New today.

Post  JohnB on 22.03.11 18:39

Hello everyone.

Just got my JML HO as my built in fan oven has died and the cost to repair it will be over £100. So I tried to do something simple, a Cornish Pasty (don't laugh). I pre-heated the HO and placed it on the high rack. Followed the instruction on the Ginsters packing (180 deg for 20 minutes), but while the pastry was burning, the meat inside was cold so I microwaved it. What I want to know (apart from what did I do wrong) is do I use low rack for most things? Also I want to cook some frozen chips and frozen battered fish. Then I'd like to go for a nice chicken roast dinner on Sunday...

Cheers

John

who is laughing? not me!

Seriously John most of us have similar stories to tell.

Other people may cook differently in their HO but is what works best for me / my JML:
preheat oven, cook on high rack with extention ring on top.
You need hot air to circulate beneath the pastry

Reduce temp by 15 to 20 degree. Cook for longer if needed

I use high rack for smaller size food with ring on top. When cooking in a casserole and for roast chicken I use the low rack. I use the ring as well because it keeps the heat higher up, allowing the food to cook through without burning the top.

It is a good idea to read the previous posts for tips and advice and the Q and A section. You will find so many useful advice there.

For that yummy roast chicken, check out the recipe section.

Hope this helps

welcome

Thanks Reeta, I think I know what I did wrong. I put the pasty in a pyrex dish to cook so air did not circulate around it. Need to buy the extension ring I think. Will try frozen fish and chips tomorrow.

Cheers

Welcome John

We have all made mistakes from which we learn. The extender ring is, for me, essential and I use it as Reeta does.

Have a good read when you get time. Some of the previous posts should help you avoid the mistakes that others have made.

Hey I cooked my first meal. Frozen fish and chips. I use chunky homefries which are big enough to sit on the rack without falling through. Put the fish on the lower rack and cooked it for 10 minutes (turned it once) and then added the chips on the top rack for a further 15mins. What amazed me was that everything was crispy (chips fluffy inside) and not "soggy" as when I did them in conventional oven. Next is beef burgers done the same way. I'll need to try the wash option tomorrow when its cooled off.

Hi John

Well done on your first meal. clap

You can line your HO with tin foil to make the clean up even easier.

Ah thanks June, I was wondering about that, especially with shop-bought burgers as they are full of fat.
