Very Slow oven 120°C 250°F
Slow oven 150°C 300–325°F
Moderately Slow 165°C 325–350°F
Moderate oven 180°C 350–375°F
Moderately Hot 190–200°C 375–400°F
Hot oven 210°C 400–450°F
Fast oven 240°C 450–500°F

The various standard phrases[1] to describe oven temperatures include words such as "cool" to "hot" or "very slow" to "fast". For example, a cool oven has temperature set to 90°C (200°F), and a slow oven has a temperature range from 150°C. A moderate oven has a range of 180–190°C and a hot oven has temperature set to 195–225°C. A fast oven has a range of 240°C for the typical temperature.
