Information On Oven And Cooker Temperatures

Regardless of the cost, style, type and manufacturer of your oven, they must all meet the temperature limits set by the British Standards Institute.

If you are in the market for a new oven, it is a good idea to choose a model fitted with a cooling fan.  This fan comes into operation at the end of the cooking period, once the oven is turned off.  It is designed to quickly lower the internal temperature of the oven, which will also cool the external temperature.


External Temperatures

It is only to be expected that when your oven is in use, the outside of your oven will warm up as well.  It depends on the quality of the oven you have purchased quite how warm the external temperature can be.  If you have young children, it is a good idea to check this out with your retailer at the time of purchase.  You will obviously wish to avoid any appliance that could burn a small child’s hand if they happen to come into contact with the oven when in use.

The British Standards state that a glass or metal control panel is still safe if it reaches 60 Deg C above room temperature, or enamel can be 65 Deg C above room temperature.  Average room temperature is about 20 Deg C, so you are looking at external temperatures of up to 85 Deg C – pretty high, especially when little fingers are around.

60 Deg C above ambient temperature is also set for plastic control knobs and handles, and glass oven doors.  The metal door handle is allowed to be 35 Deg C above room temperature. Read More About It Here…
