¹ You should set a fan-assisted oven to 20°C lower than that stipulated by the recipe, unless the recipe specifically mentions temperature settings on fan-assisted ovens. So, if a recipe says to bake something at, say 200°C, you should set it to 180°C if you are using a fan-assisted oven and in principle cook it for the same amount of time. This is only a guideline.
