What is considered high altitude for baking?
Most people think of high altitude as being 8,000 ft. above sea level or higher. For baking purposes, high altitude is considered to be 3,500 ft. or more above sea level. At this elevation the air pressure is lower and the air is thinner, which can affect how your food cooks.
Ovens from Whirlpool brand can help you get dinner on the table, no matter what altitude you’re cooking in. You can get evenly distributed hot air with True Convection Cooking, which cooks foods faster1 with the addition of a third element plus a fan that distributes hot air evenly over, under and around food so dinner is ready right on time.
