All oven temperatures on this website are for fan ovens, unless otherwise stated.
Oven Temperatures Conversion tables for fahrenheit, centigrade and gas mark oven temperatures, also the old traditional settings of moderate and moderately hot etcetera.
I strongly recommend that you purchase an oven thermometer. They cost very little and could save you a fortune.
It is surprising how some ovens fluctuate against the temperature on the actual setting knob and your oven may not actually be cooking at the temperature that you think.

Don’t be afraid of your oven – long before the arrival of the modern oven, bakers and cooks consistently managed to produce the most amazingly good meals on much more primitive heat sources. The secret is practice and getting to know when bread and cakes, and stews and casseroles are just right, and just how much ‘fire’ or heat each recipe needs to cook it perfectly.
