    350° Fahrenheit = 176° Celsius. If you're curious why America still uses Fahrenheit, watch our video to find out: bit.ly/2JAuXcN

      Did you know "America" is not a country? Very bad VOX wants to show itself as "impartial" to a global scale audience, but still perpetuate 'Murican cultural rubbish like this one...

      +Ginglyst The world has already decided on which temperature scale should be used: the International System of Units specifies the kelvin (K) as the unit of thermodynamic temperature and the degree Celsius (°C) as the unit of Celsius temperature. There is no reason for anyone to persist in using any other unit in a modern setting.

    350 degrees is the perfect temp? Oh lord, time to thank my mom. She always tells us to leave the oven on 350, not matter what the directions say. 🙄

    I often use lower temps when I roast low and slow. Like I will bake ribs or a pork roast at 285-300 for a longer time that way the ribs or pork roast are moist and tender. I will bake a pound cake at 325

  • Isabella Evamara
    Isabella Evamara 9 days ago

    how come when i was growing up most things you bake said pre-heat to 400 425 450 500 550 and then now most things are 350 or 325 or sometimes 375 with only a few things saying 425?
    how come beef meals used to always be 500 or 550 sometimes telling you to reduce temperature during cooking and now most instructions for beef meals/dishes say 350 or 425 or in that range and just leave the oven at one temperature during cooking?

    350f sucks and burns everything, it's 350f not because it's the best, it's 350f because every recipe needs to be quick in order to make people happy which results in everything you bake being burnt 50% of the time. If someone reads "these cookies take 30 minutes to bake at 300f" they get fed up and ignore it, if the recipe says "350f for 15 minutes." they actually try baking it, even if it burns.

    • The Noisy Spectator
      The Noisy Spectator 9 days ago

      Easy Flow, you are ranting over something that is not worth it.
      350 is a good rule of thumb because one number is easy to remember, and it can be applied to baking everything.
      If people were really that lazy, they would just come up with a way to microwave everything.

    • The Noisy Spectator
      The Noisy Spectator 8 days ago

      My opinion is just as important as anyone else's, even if I don't persuade anyone else to agree with me!
      I speak from experience using both Celsius and Farenheight!
      What do _you_ think is a comfortable room temperature, in Celsius?

    • Alessandro Salbego
      Alessandro Salbego 9 days ago

      Interesting but as someone from a country that prodominatly (spelling RIP) uses Fahrenheit I'm not sure if it counts. I anyone from any other point in the globe agreed then maybe. By the way is the Babylonian system of base 60 not also too broad then. Them leaving us with 360 degrees and 60 minutes in an hour. It atleast feels to to. 60 is such a large number.

    • The Noisy Spectator
      The Noisy Spectator 9 days ago

      Yes, but I have still been exposed to the metric system enough to compare it to Fahrenheit.
      The Celsius scale is not as uncommon here as you would think from reading the comments here.

      Michael Choe - If you did that, the outside would bake solid, and insulate the inside against the heat.
      The outside would crisp up and catch fire before the center got cooked enough to be edible.

    I prefer 325F intead of 350F b/c the cookie will be soft and slightly undone in the middle. I did an experiment for this last year for one of my baking and pastry art classes and I found that 375° out of 325F & 350F was the winning degree to bake cookies at according to my chef instructors I personally don't like a golden brown cookie I like it looking like a flattened piece of cookie dough very soft and slightly chewy
