Do I Need To Cover Food In The Oven?

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:

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
