Appliance help - KitchenAid electric oven is ~60°F low
Posted by: mattkime

Occasionally I cook dinner at my parent's house. Their oven doesn't get warm enough for my taste. It never has but they've never been concerned with it. IMO, if you're not putting a crisp on your roast with high heat....what are you doing?? Anyway, I'm making the turkey so I care. The oven is set to 500°F (convection) with the internal temp compensation set to 30°F - both are the highest values accepted by the oven. My trusty Thermoworks temp probe tells me that its seen a high of 466°F. So its not getting warm enough but not by a ton. I'm tempted to try to fix it.

Perhaps I should see if I have the same problem on regular bake. That might indicate a problem with the temp sensor.

Any thoughts?

It might be compensating. I'll check to see if our oven is compensating.

set it 60 degrees higher than needed. The first time you put a rack of prime rib in it, it will correct itself and give you a well done dinner.

Hm, I set it to 500°F on regular bake and it hit a high of 546°F. I need to do another attempt with convection bake. Maybe only convection bake is low.

The Shirley Cohirer in the WaPo article is the same Shirley that was always on Good Eats with Alton Brown.

I was wondering that. Could be compensating for a faster cooking time under convection settings, so it drops the actual temp to give consistant cook times comparable to non convection recipes.
