We've just moved into a new (rental) house with an ancient kitchen. In between cursing the tiny cabinets and laughing at the pink countertops, we are actually trying to cook. However, I was dismayed that it took 40 minutes (yes, that is forty, four-oh) for the oven to preheat from room temp to 450F. The appliance in question is an electric Kitchenaid Superba model, with a ceramic top and convection option. I am used to cooking on/in gas without convection. So... what to do?
1. accept it and plan further ahead next time
2. try something different with the settings
3. tell the landlord to get the oven fixed
