Can I preheat the oven for five minutes?
You can preheat the oven for five minutes when using the broil setting on many full-sized ovens. To reach higher temperatures, you may have to allow the oven more time to warm up. As a general rule, it usually takes about 12-15 minutes to preheat an oven to 350ºF, with a five minute increase for every 100 degrees over 350ºF. If you find your oven is taking longer to heat up, it may need to be calibrated before you use it. Model specifics may vary, so check your oven’s manual for exact instructions and preheat times.
