HEAT SETTINGS
CANNING
INFORMATION
• If a higher setting is used to begin a surface cooking
operation or to bring water to a boil, always reduce to a
lower setting once cooking begins or water comes to a
boil.
• Forsmoothtop cooking, it is better to select a lower
setting and increase to a higher one later,if needed,
• Food will not cook faster at a settingthat is higher than
neededto maintain a gentle boil. The temperature of
the water is the same whether boiling vigorouslyor
gently.
Factorsaffectingthe heat setting include:
• Type,flatness and size of the cookware,
Acceptablewater bath or pressure canners should not be
oversized and should haveflat bottoms.
• Quantityand type of food being cooked.
• Use of a lid (coveringpans speeds cooking and saves
energy),
• Elementvoltage or voltage supply to your home.
When canning, usethe HIGHsetting just until the water
comes to a boil or pressure is reached in the canner,
then reduce to the lowest heat setting that maintainsthe

COMMON BAKING PROBLEMS AND WHY THEY HAPPEN
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSES
Cakes are uneven.
• Pans too close or touching each other or oven walls. • Batter uneven in pans.
• Temperatureset too low or baking time too short. • Oven not level. • Undermixing.
• Too much liquid.
Cake high in middle.
• Temperatureset too high. • Bakingtime too long. • Overmixing. • Too much flour.
• Pans touching each other or oven walls. • Incorrect rack position.
Cake falls.
• Too much shortening or sugar. • Too muchor too little liquid. • Temperatureset too

For optimum results, bake on one rack. If bakingcakes on two racks, place pans toward

ABOUTCOOKING
BROILING TIPS
Broiling is used for tender cuts of meat or marinated
meats, poultry, fish and some fruits and vegetables. The
food is placed directly under the broil element.
• When broiling in an electric oven, the door should be
opened to the broil stop position (opened about
4-inches).

This is to prevent spatters and smoke.
• For a brown exterior and rare interior, meat should be

the broiler pan farther from the element.
• Increasing the distance between the meat and the broil
element will help reduce spattering and smoking,
