Choosing the best oven for baking polymer clay.

Posted by Elena Segers on

Having a correct oven for baking polymer clay will help you create high quality clay pieces and will save time. 

Here is our checklist for choosing the best one: 

  • Look for an electric oven with a convection function. A convection oven has a fan and exhaust system that circulate hot air around the oven, reducing hot and cool spots and helping products on every rack cook more evenly. You can use a toaster oven without a convection function (fan) for baking clay, but there is a risk that the temperature will fluctuate, and it will damage the pieces.  
  • If you are looking for a tabletop oven, choose anything below 52 liters. The dimensions of 52 L oven will be around 46 cm x 61 cm x 49 cm, which is similar to a microwave. Anything bigger will occupy more space. A 52 L oven will be perfect for baking high pieces. 
  • Do not select a very small oven, as it may cause burning.
  • Select an oven that has a 60 min timer with a switch-off function. 
  • All ovens will come with a temperature dial, but you should always verify the reading by placing an oven thermometer inside. 

        Happy baking!
