Banana Bread in the Oven

Q:
I'm preparing for a dinner party and I'm looking for ways to save on time. Is it alright to cook three of four dishes in the oven simultaneously?



A: Cooking multiple dishes simultaneously in the oven is perfectly fine, as long as you're not cooking delicate and heat-sensitive dishes. The big challenge is to heat various dishes evenly. With a full oven, the hot air circulates less freely, thus creating hot and cold spots. To achieve even heating, rotate the placement of the dishes halfway through cooking. Also, arrange the dishes such that there's enough space between them, making sure the edges don't touch each other, to allow the hot air to flow easily.
