Whenever you begin to bake, it's always important to preheat the oven. Especially the Easy Bake! You never want to shove in a batch of brownies or a pan of zitis into a cold Easy Bake oven. It's a rookie move and you could end up with food that is burned on the bottom, yet lukewarm on top. An Easy Bake should always be preheated for 15 minutes prior to use. This time is not negotiable. The fiery hot light bulb needs to reach a proper temp before baking. So plug it in, prep your items and cook with ease!
