I am a home baker with the standard home oven. I'd like to know if the 16" round wilton pan is too big for the standard sized home kitchen oven?
Not sure what standard oven size is? Have you measured the inside of your oven?
I'm assuming it would be the standard 30" range, however, I'm not sure off hand if that means the oven is big enough to put the 16" round pan in.
However, on second thought, I think I have baked the 16" square cake before in my oven, so this was probably a dumb question.
I'm gonna go take a nap now!
No question is ever dumb. It never hurts to ask. I would still measure the inside of your oven to make sure it would fit.
A nap sounds like a good idea, I think I may have to take one too!
Every brand & style of oven is different. You must measure from side to side *and* front to back to see what the largest pan *your* oven will hold w/o touching the sides. There should be at least 1/2" clearance all around the pan for good , even baking.
Oh, and remember most pans have an additional 1/4 to 1/2" 'lip'/roll besides the inside measurement.
