Water gets on the kitchen floor when using the oven



If water gets on the kitchen floor when using the oven, during roasting a great deal of condensation is created. Refer to the suggestions below for step by step instructions. 

Using too much water when roasting a small amount of meat on a large roasting tin. The water evaporates too quickly and the meat is roasted dry.

  • Use a small roasting tin or an ovenproof dish suitable for the size of the roast.
  • Alternatively, place the roast on the rack and put a dish in the same size as the roast in the roasting tin under the roast to collect the juices.

Using hot air for roasting will cause greater evaporation.

  • The hot circulating air generates more steam in the oven compartment.
  • When hot air is used for cooking, the food will also dry out more.
  • Optional: Add a little water, no more than 200 - 400 ml. Do not add any more water during roasting.

When preparing dishes which generate a lot of moisture, use the heat from the top and bottom elements.
