Main Oven Cookery Notes
When all three shelves are used to cook large quantities of food for home
freezing or parties,it may be necessary to increase the cooking times given in
the temperature charts by a few minutes, to allow for the loss of heat due to
extra time taken to load the oven, and the larger mass of food. Baking trays
should have an equal gap at either side of the oven.
Joints of meat and whole birds should be defrosted slowly, preferably in a
domestic refrigerator (allowing 5-6 hours per 450g (1 lb), or at room
temperature (allowing 2-3 hours per 450g (1 lb).
