Veggies won't brown in steamy oven

glacier206 | Nov 9, 2012 06:54 AM

I recently moved to a new house and am trying to learn my new oven. With my last oven, I never had to give roasting vegetables a second thought—they always came out nice and brown. With my new oven, I cannot get any browning. Veggies get mushy, and oven fries never brown. I believe the problem is steam in the oven. The air inside is really wet—so much so that, when I open the oven door, I have to stand back a few seconds, otherwise I get a gust of hot steam in my face. This never happened with my old oven.

So what’s going on? Anyone else have a steamy oven? Don’t know if it matters, but my last oven was gas and the new one is electric.
