My Tip:

For COOKER......Preheat your cooker with salt on high flame for 5 mins, then lower the flame and keep yr biscuit tray in the cooker put on lid without whistle and check after 15 mins, if u see the change in colour then remove, if it needs more time give it an extra 4 to 5 mins. You will have to eyeball this process as everyone's gas flame is different.
