Do I Need To Cover Food In The Oven?
0

5 posts in this topic

I live in an apartment and share an oven with a gluten-eating roommate.  We honestly haven't used it that much since I've been gluten-free (or at all) but we're planning on using it a lot more for gluten-free meals.  It isn't a self-cleaning oven so I plan to scrub it down as best I can but still not put foods directly on the rack.  Do I also need to put a cover over the food?

Not if there is nothing to fall in it. If the " roof" is clean, there will be nothing to fall in. If you are cooking a gluten thing and a gluten-free thing, I would cover. Just in case the gluten one spits a bit in the oven.

Your oven is safe. Don't worry about covering food unless it's going to burn.

 

I tried to think of things that would explode containing gluten.  Cam't come up with any, they usually spill over.  The aromas can't get you either.   That's my opinion, though, and I guess I could be wrong.

i/we still bake (crusty 'regular' bread, frozen pizzas, etc) for the gluten-eaters and sometimes it recommends placing the (whatever) directly onto the oven rack.  so if i am using the rack below it, i will cover it.  <in case any stuck on gluten bakes off and drops into what is baking below it) or JUST USE THE TOP RACK!  (@ my HUSBAND!!)  for the life of him, he remembers it exactly wrong almost every time lolz bless his little pea pickin' heart   :wub:

omg my husband is like this too! He does those frozen pizza things that say to cook right on the rack. Then I have to remember to switch the racks if I have something to bake that needs to be uncovered in the middle. I always just give the racks a quicky scrub if I'm going to be doing something like cookies or w/e. (Since it involves using both racks and moving things around all the time and I could knock whatever lose crumbs are there off.) But if you aren't cooking something like pizza or w/e directly ON one of the racks, or don't do something like cook a gluteny angel food cake in a springform pan on Mother's Day that spills out all over :ph34r: I wouldn't worry about it at all. Besides, those sorts of things should probably be cleaned up anyway. "Should" and "probably" being the key words. :lol:
