Running slow, obviously blush

Do you have a top oven, it would probably be around the right temperature if the bottom oven is cooking something. Otherwise I think it would be fine to take them out and finish them off later.

other way round, bran

meringues are in bottom oven of Rayburn, at about 100 deg (so the thermometer says hmm have been in 2 hours, and are still sticky and won't come off paper without leaving half behind.

DH wants to razz up top oven to maximum, and i don't want meringues to burn.

We've had the Rayburn 9 yrs, and I still can't get it right sad

I don't know anything about Rayburns, sorry. Do you have a warming oven? I remember my mum occasionally making meringues by heating the oven up then turning it off and leaving the meringues overnight, so a low heat for longer would work.

think the bottom oven counts as a warming oven, though it gets quite hot if the top oven is on max!
