typical oven temp range & recipe target temp?
I have two questions regarding electric temperatures and baking recipes:
1) what is considered 'good' for the temperature range an electrical oven can maintain for a given temperature and is that range typically a constant or does it change and you move from the minimum temp an oven is design to maintain to a maximum? For example we have a late 90's GE electric wall oven. If I set it at 450F....the temperate min max range is ~445f to 505f and when I set it to 170f the temperate range is ~160f to 210f.
2) when a recipe calls for a specific temperature to set the oven at, is the author expecting the oven to maintain that target at the min, average, max or something else?
