Can you cook directly on oven rack?

Presumably the reason you’re cooking directly on the oven rack is to let the fat drip down. If so, do yourself a favour and get yourself a roasting rack. It’s an inexpensive piece of equipment that you place in a baking pan or on a cookie sheet; the food cooks on the rack and the pan/sheet catches all the drippings.

Does it matter which rack I use in the oven?

The short answer is Yes! You want your food to be in the center of the oven, which usually means the oven rack should be in the center of the oven.

Which rack is the hottest in an oven?

Most (if not all) ovens are hotter at the top than at the bottom. Thus, if you have two baking sheets in your oven, one on a higher rack and one on a lower rack, the one on the higher rack will cook faster.

Where should oven racks be placed?

The middle oven rack is the happy place where air is circulating, the heat sources are evenly distributed, and tops and bottoms aren’t in danger of burning or browning too quickly. It’s the perfect place for cakes, cookies, and brownies to stay and bake.

Can oven racks be used over fire?

You can definitely cook on the rack in the pan in the oven. I’m not sure I would recommend cooking over an open flame, but then I’m also not sure the rack is any different from a fish rack which you would use over an open flame. However, cooking over fire might permanently discolor the rack. 1 of 1 found this helpful.
