In this article today, we are going to learn how to use OTG Oven for baking for beginners. These are some of the most crucial OTG baking tips that you must know. Let’s begin.
How to Use OTG Oven? (A Beginner Guide)
Starting with the basics, an OTG Oven has 3 knob controls that you can use to set your OTG for different cooking, heating, or baking purposes.
These 3 knobs are for 3 essential cooking things like Temperature Control, Function Knob, & Time Control. All of these combined with your OTG cooking skills can bring delicious recipes to the plate.
Most OTG Ovens have the option to set up to 250 degrees celsius. I have talked about it a lot of times already. Especially for baking, 250 degrees celsius is the appropriate temperature that you must set while baking cakes at home.
Function Knob Control
Just like convection microwave ovens have a lot of function controls, these days OTG ovens also come along with various function control options. Most OTG ovens have multiple heating rods, using your function control knob, you can choose which heating rods to take into use while cooking your recipe.
You already know what this is, Timer control is the setting that you can use to set timers for turning on and off your OTG. You can use the timer control option to automatically shut off your OTG after a certain period of time, even when you’re not in the kitchen. This option is essential so your recipe does not get overcooked or your cake does not get overbaked.
OTG Trays & Accessories
Now you know the control parts of OTG, let’s now understand how many types of trays are there in an OTG, and what are essential OTG accessories that you must have in your kitchen.
Baking Trays are the most important component that you will need while using your OTG for baking purposes at home. If you have never ever baked before, I highly recommend you to check out our baking tips for beginners guide so you have an idea of how to use the OTG for baking.
Crumb trays are basically the cover plates that are used at the bottom of the OTG so that even if any crumbs or overbaked pieces fall out of the cooking container, you can easily clean them off from the tray. This protects your OTG oven bottom from getting dirtier. If you don’t do so, you’ll have to clean your oven after each usage. So you must always use a crumb tray at the very bottom.
Grill racks are another very important part of an oven. Not just OTG, but in any kind of refrigerating, heating, or cooking equipment. You use these grill racks to place your container upon them so your dish gets properly cooked from all the sides. This lets you easily distribute even heat throughout the container so you get the perfect results.
