For Best Air Circulation

Hot air must circulate around the pans in the oven for even heat to reach all parts of the oven. This results in better baking.

Oven Air Circulation
For best results, allow 1-1/2 to 2 inches (4-5 cm.) of space around each pan and between pans and oven walls.


Place the pans so that one is not directly over the  other.

Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at a time for best air circulation.

Use the following as a guide to determine where to place the pans:

One Pan

Place in the center of the oven rack.

Two Pans

Place in opposite corners of the oven rack or on two separate racks.

Three or Four Pans

Place in opposite corners on each oven rack. Stagger the pans so that no pan is directly over another.
