Oven Temperature Changes

alliels | Jul 1, 2013 06:29 PM

Hello everyone,

I want to make pretzels like the ones sold at the mall and plan on following this recipe from Food Network

I was wondering if its okay for these sort of recipes to instead of baking for 8min at 450 I'll increase the time but bake at 400 or less. I live in a rented unit and my oven has always given off a weird smell (not totally a plastic or burning smell but its just odd and easily noticeable) at temperatures higher than 400. Since its a rented apartment I haven't wanted to experiment with oven cleanup besides using oven cleaning sprays.

For most things I lower the temp and up the cooking time, but since this is bread, will it be a problem with making these pretzels?

Thanks guys for your help!
