How Hot Is A Very Hot Oven?


If you have ever looked through an old cookbook, you have probably seen directions for baking with wording such as Bake in a slow oven.

But how are you supposed to know what temperature that is?

Here is a chart that will give you a close estimate.
The degrees aren't exact. You have a 25 degree range, but it will work.

Very slow oven....................250-275 degrees Fahrenheit

Slow oven..........................300-325 degrees Fahrenheit

Moderate oven................... 350-375 degrees Fahrenheit

Hot oven...........................400-425 degrees Fahrenheit

Very hot oven....................450-475 degrees Fahrenheit

Extremely hot oven............500-525 degrees Fahrenheit
