What does the word preheat mean?
March 26, 2009 9:16PM
To preheat means to bring up to the required temperature before using, so for an oven, turn it on and allow time for it to come up to the required temperature before putting in the food. Most ovens have an indicator light on the front panel that will switch off when the oven has reached the set temperature.
