What is the difference between using the pre-heat button on my oven or just turning the bake onto the degree I want and waiting for it to heat to that temperature?
Yes, it is electric. I just can't seem to figure out what the difference is, if any.
well, if a timer sounds when it reaches the temp. either way, i would guess no difference. i never had an electric oven with preheat setting....
Imagine that! hmmm don't know what else to say. I am speechless. Uncommon occurrence it is too.
Might this help?

My answer would be....who cares? If they both work for ya, pick one and go for it!
Its probably a time saving feature, it preheats to temp quicker by using more heat than you would get by simply turning it to your desired temp normally.
Its probably the opposite of an energy saving feature.
I usually turn my oven to 500, if i want to use it quickly for something that bakes to 350 (I have an extra internal therm), I bet the feature replicates a similar process
This link explains what the purpose of Pre-Heating is used for in your oven. I always use the pre-heat, but found this article very interesting.
This article explains what pre-heat is and why it is used.
As far as using pre-heat or waiting for the oven to heat up without using the pre-heat setting.....I have never noticed a time difference.
The buzzer lets you know when you can put the food in the oven at the best heating time. If you wait longer than the necessary time for the oven to reach the desired degree then you are wasting electricity.
lol, no the article states
"here would be little or no infrared radiation to brown or char the top of the cake.
This, by the way, is why you pre-heat an oven"
It describes the action, pre-heat, it does not relate to the difference between the feature or setting Pre-Heat and the act of waiting for an oven to reach a certain temperature before placing an item in it
That is why I explained it with my next response. The pre-heat setting lets you know the oven is ready for maximum result at the time you place the food inside. The only savings I have seen from reading and experience of using the pre-heat setting is the money I would save by not waiting 10 minutes to place food in oven when the pre-heat setting/buzzer lets me know I can put the food in the oven at 5 minutes.
And the higher degree you set the oven temp, the more electricity you will use.

I'm working on a hub about peanut butter cookies, so I made a batch of them using my best-ever recipe. They are fresh out of the oven, stacked up on a plate. My 4th grade son comes along and starts to take a cookie off the plate, but stops and says, "Mom, can I have one of these or are do you...
