Waiting for the oven to reach peak temperature doesn't have to be so painstakingly long.

The Problem: You need dinner on the table ASAP during the week, but preheating the oven often adds an additional 15 minutes or more.

The Hack: If heating up the oven before you even start cooking your dinner deters you from making a homemade meal during the week, there’s a faster way to get dinner done. Set your oven to broil for about 5 minutes, then switch your oven to bake and the desired temperature. Your oven will heat up to this temperature in no time! An easy way to cut out prep time.
