The ideal temperature for cooking in the RÖMERTOPF®
is between 190°C and 250°C, (375°F and 500°F).
Dishes with a very long cooking time require a lower
temperature than those which cook quickly.
For a crunchy surface you can chose a higher temperature
at the end of preparation time.
When using a gas oven, generating the full heat right
from the beginning, initially set the temperature to
gas mark 5, (190°C, 375°F) and increase it by
one gas mark every five minutes, until the required
temperature has been reached.
Each RÖMERTOPF® can as well be
placed in the microwave oven. Handling is the same as
while cooking in the oven. Since the mcrowave oven
works extremely quickly you should keep an eye
on it in the beginning to get an idea about the

This applies to all the suggestions in this book. They
are designed for four people and assume an average appetite,
unless the multitude of the ingredients or the length
of the cooking time merit an adjustment. Cooking times
and nutritional values present you with useful information
at a glance. The latter are the average for the particular
dish and it´s ingredients, based on the metric measurements
and allowing for variation in the fat content and the
weight of fruit or vegetables. Side dishes are not included
in the calculation of the nutritional value. We quote
both the imperial and metric measurements. These are
not direct conversions but intended to maintain the
correct correlation of the ingredients; The variation
being about 10 per cent either way. Finally, an average
tablespoon generally holds ½oz/15g, though depending
on it´s size, it may hold only as little as 2/5oz/12g
or as much as 2/3oz/20g.
