Preheating the Tovala is quicker than preheating a conventional oven because you're heating a small space with powerful heating elements.
How do I preheat the Tovala?
With the Tovala App!
- In the Tovala's "Oven" tab, set your Tovala to Bake, the desired temperature, and the preheat time (shown in the chart below), and then press the "Cook" button WITHOUT your food in the oven. This gives your Tovala enough time to heat up and get to the temperature you want.
- When your Tovala and smartphone let you know the preheating is done, set your Tovala to Bake, the temperature you just preheated to, and the cook time you'd like. Then pop in your food and press the "Cook" button!
- Preheat Chart
For example, preheating the Tovala when you're baking cookies at 375°F.
- Set your to Bake at 375°F for 2:45 (the time recommended by the chart above for preheating to 375°F). Then press "Cook" with an empty oven.
- When your Tovala and smartphone let you know the preheating is done 2:45 later, set your Tovala to Bake at 375°F for 10:00. Then pop in your cookies and press the "Cook" button!
