Too brown on top - Gas and Dual Fuel Range

Possible Solutions

Did you use the correct rack position for the food being baked?  

Most baked goods will perform best if a single rack is used and positioned according to the type of baked good.   

  • Rack positions in the center of the oven are used for the majority of baked goods, cookies, layer cakes and casseroles.

Does the oven need to be calibrated?

The oven provides accurate temperatures; however, it may cook faster or slower than your previous oven.  The temperature calibration can be adjusted. It can be changed in Fahrenheit or Celsius.

Perform a Bake Performance Test to determine if the oven needs to be calibrated.
