Starting 1st use to get rid of manufacture odour.
There was a little fault in the oven that was delivered on 31 Dec 2011, thus an exchange was done on 05 Jan 2012. I had prepared for its first use on 07 Jan 2012, and only to realize it has no preheat function! OMG! What am I going to do?
Immediately, google for an answer is what I can only think of. After doing some research, only did I know that it actually is not any big deal not to have a preheat function. Even if an oven had a preheat function, it might not be accurate as well. The most trusted equipment for this role would still be an oven thermometer. So what I need to do is to just place an oven thermometer in an oven and switch it on for about 10min to 15min. Once the oven reach the required recipe temperature, that’s all what I need to do in order to preheat an oven.
Coming to think of it now, I feel so stupid to think that no preheat function is a VERY BIG DEAL! And I almost feel so sad getting such an expensive oven without this function. Haha. I might have been spoilt by by Sharp microwave oven which comes with preheat function and it usually takes me around 2 to 3 mins. But never did I know that the temperature might not be correct. This prove that I'm really novice to baking at this juncture. I really got a lot more to learn and I will continue learning...
