I have tried baking several things in my oven and every time the bottom of the cookies, cake, etc. is burned. I am using the top rack in the oven - any suggestions?

On our last outing I decided to fix buscuits with breakfast instead of the usual toast. My oven burned the bottom of the biscuits. At breakfast my husband told me I needed to raise my rack. Still in my PJ's I said "you ARE talking about the oven, right?" With the deer in the headlight look on his face he replied "yes!"

Guess I'll try raising the oven rack higher and see how the buscuits turn out next time.

Other than that I have no suggestions.

Get an oven thermometer. The temp dials on the outside can and do vary as much as 50 degrees. And my spouse found that using a very thick pan allowed things to brown on top with out burning the bottom.

We had problems with things burning in our oven until we starting using a pizza stone on the rack. This tends to spread the heat and prevents burning. Our stone is a round one but our daughter has a rectangular one. We leave ours in place even when we travel (Oven off, of course).

Put a pizza stone or an air bake cookie sheet on the bottom of the oven (above the flame). This dispates the heat. You will need to increase your cooking time by just a couple of minutes. My wife started doing this and no more burnt bottoms! We got our pizza stone at Bed Bath and Beyond for about $5.

The TV show RV Today had a tip suggesting putting cermanic tiles in the bottom of the oven to make the heat more even. A left-over 16" x 16" floor tile from our house fit's just perfectly in our oven, and seems to help with making the oven heat more even.

Home Depot, Lowe's, or Menard's all have the tile that will do a GREAT job. Unglazed is better. They cost around $2.00. Many people in our winter park are not using these tiles.

The tile spreads the heat around instead of having all of the heat in the center.

Be certain to check the temp. of your oven to make cedrtain that the setting is correct. It can be easily corrected.

Happy Trails!!!

Make sure the tile is heat resistant! We didn't and heard a loud pop sound and when we looked the tile had "exploded". There was no damage to the oven, but couldn't eat what was being cooked due to the fact of the pieces of the tile. That is why we got the pizza stone.
