No oven racks...what do I do?

I recently moved into a new apartment and the oven came without any racks! Is there something else I can use until I can find some racks?

Go to an appliance store with the oven name and model # and ask for racks.

Yeah; if you're renting, you need to make this the landlords problem and not your own.

Might be a tad hard to find in Key West. Find the make and model to locate some online, or if you're good at measuring, take some measurments to find some that way.

....or, let the landlord deal with it.

Well if you need to bake something imidiately just use on of those big foil pans upside down on the bottom, poke few hole s thru in the bottom and then put whatever you are baking on the top.

But yes definitely complain to landlord and have them give you a new stove. Good luck.

Do you have a toaster oven to use until you get new racks?

That would work to get the pan up in the air so heat can circulate around the pan. However, it may leave the pan too close to the bottom where the heat comes from and could cause burning on the bottom of the pan.
