Have any of you found a good way for getting two oven cooked foods ready at the same time?
I like fish and chips, but they're usually baked at wildly different temperatures, and most of the time I just eat fish -then- chips.
Which is, you know.. still great, but not ideal.
Um. Don't put them in the oven at the same time?
>chips take 40 minutes at 200C
>fish takes 15 minutes at 200C
>put chips in the oven
>wait until 25 minutes has passed
>put the fish in there too
>wait 15 more minutes
>both things cooked at once
Is this not really easy to figure out?
If you put in two racks you get 3 different temperature zones.
Top is hottest.
Middle is slightly less hot.
Bottom is even less hot.
Depends also if you use convection or Top-/Bottom-Heat.
Opening the door also cools it down quite a bit.
But every oven's unique size, elements, even COLOR and refraction alters the actual temperature difference between those zones, not to mention what's on each rack.
It's notoriously unreliable to bake multiple things at the same time
Probably the only thing to do I guess, hope it doesn't dry it out. Thanks.
This already isn't the most healthy meal in the world. Even if I wanted to dip my battered grease fillets in more grease, I don't own a deep fryer.
Also I can't stand frying in general, it spatters oil and then I have to clean everything.

real "efficient". shoo, shoo, slimy limey
it depends on so many things. what are you doing with the meat or fish, are you trying to crisp or brown it, are you specifically trying to avoid that, how evenly does your oven heat, what's the resting time on the meat or fish, etc.
if you're cooking stuff from frozen, probably best to at least roughly follow the instructions. but remember that home ovens can vary wildly in terms of temperature so i think it's wise for you to just learn to experiment?
