H2: How to fry or bake on a cooktop?

We all know that stovetops are for cooking and ovens are for baking. However, sometimes we would still like to give baking a try or to fry a frost. Taking this into consideration, there are actually several ways on how you can convert your cooktop to be a DIY oven for your baking needs. Here’s how you can turn your stovetop into an easy oven:

  • Take notably large cookware that is big enough to fit smaller pieces of cookware inside. This large pot should also come with a tight-fitting lid. 
  • Place a wire rack inside the large rack to serve as a spacer inside.
  • If you do not have a wire rack, you can opt for something simpler such as stones, ceramic tiles, and sand. What is important is to make sure that there is space between the bottom of the pot and the bakeware so that heat and hot air can be distributed and circulated instead of simply cooking the bottom of the pan.  
  • Then, place your smaller bakeware inside the large pot and on top of the wire rack and tightly close the lid above.  

This setup will be able to provide heat that will circulate hot air throughout the whole pot and somehow mimic an oven.
