Types of oven racks
oven rack
Fig. 1
The flat oven rack or flat handle oven rack (some
models) may be used for most cooking needs.
The offset oven rack (some models) is designed to place
the base of the rack about 1/2 of a rack position lower than
normal. This rack design provides several additional
possible positions between the standard positions.
Air circulation in the oven
For best baking results allow 2-4" (5-10 cm) around the
cookware for proper air circulation and be sure pans and
cookware do not touch each other, the oven door, sides or
back of the oven cavity. Hot air must be able to circulate
around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to
reach around the food.
