Topics Covered In This Video:
- Upgrade from an old Black and Decker Toaster Oven to a new Kitchenaid Counter top Convection Oven.
- Christmas Gift from my Mom and Dad.
- Old oven was small and needed tiles on top and inside to help stabilize the temperature to keep it from spiking.
- Convection ovens contain a fan that moves the warm air around, keeping the temperature more even.
- What I love about the Kitchenaid Counter Top Convection Oven…
Plus Some General Notes:
>> It’s pretty with its Stainless Steel and Glass finish.
>>It’s large on the inside (12″ x 12″ rack with more than 5″ clearance) for baking more beads or larger pieces.
>> Comes with an enameled steel baking pan. I lined mine with 4 layers of file folders to insulate bottom.
>> Convection keeps the temperature very even… no spiking.
>> Large clearance from elements and convection heat seems to eliminate the need to tent your polymer clay while baking.
>> Be sure to still use an oven thermometer to cross reference your oven temperature dial for accuracy. Adjust dial until the temp in oven is the proper temp for your brand of polymer clay. Premo bakes at 275F.
>> Use only the Bake Setting when baking polymer clay.
>> This model has a built in 60 minute timer that automatically shuts off the oven when done.
>> 10 minutes preheat.
>> Please note that because of the fan in convection ovens, if you’re planning on Baking Your Polymer Clay on Cornstarch or Baking Soda, you will need to put it in a closed roasting pan or something, otherwise the fan will blow the powder all around your oven.
