Gas oven problem.

My gas oven burns the bottom of my dishes, I read a few months ago a discussion on putting a tile into the oven to even out the heat. Can someone please tell me how it works or if it works , what kind of tile and size. Thanks.

Re: Gas oven problem.

You could also use a pizza stone to help even things out. A friend uses four ceramic tiles placed in the oven to assist with this problem. Sizing depends upon your oven .

Re: Gas oven problem.

Oven size is a problem for me and I use 2 layers of stove top diffusers to spread the heat under the lower shelf. They jam in between the gas flame cover and the lower shelf thus protecting what I cook on the lower shelf.

Re: Gas oven problem.

Odds are that you can buy an unglazed terracotta tile from a split box at any tile store for a buck or two, while a pizza stone, which is pretty much the same thing, will cost you $15-20. Even a plain metal cookie sheet or baking pan should serve to spread the heat out to the sides and make it more even in the oven.

Re: Gas oven problem.

I had Lowes cut a 1/2" thick black marble tile to size to fit under the racks of my oven. It rests on the factory metal heat shield over the burner. It solved the problem of the blueberry muffins burning on the bottom directly over the burner. It was cheap, and black is nice... you can not see the baked on spilt crud.
