You've Been Using the Tray Underneath Your Oven WRONG


Everything you believe is a lie...

For anyone who can enjoy the luxury of a large, high-quality oven, you've probably wondered: what in the world is this little compartment underneath?
If, like most other people (including us), you simply came to the conclusion that this drawer is yet another place to stuff more cooking and baking accessories, then you've been living a lie.

To get to the bottom of this mystery, all you've got to do is take a look inside the oven's user manual and study it a little bit closer:

This seemingly unnecessary compartment that we've all been using to fill with our cupcake trays and baking sheets was actually completely misunderstood by the world! It does actually have a purpose: not as a storage space, but a heated drawer to keep foods warm before serving them. If you've ever invited people over for a party and had multiple different dishes that finished cooking at different times, you can understand how useful this extra, life-saving feature could be. Why have we been ignoring it all this time?!

Thankfully, the riddle is solved. Now it's time to do some rearranging in our kitchens...

SHARE this with your family and friends so they can discover the real use of this compartment too!
