Jury-rigging a bottom-element-only oven

RealMenJulienne | Nov 4, 2012 01:23 PM

Hello all

I just moved into a new apartment and the oven heats only from the bottom, with no top coil and no broiler. This makes it hard and annoying to get a good brown on top of pizzas, casseroles and roasts. I'm experimenting with lining the top with aluminum foil but results are inconclusive at this time. Does anyone have any tricks for getting top browning with this kind of oven?
