Message:  Is there a correct way to use an electric oven to heat food on shabbat? Can it even be used? Thank you.
Reply:  I assume that you want to take cooked food and reheat it on Shabbat morning.

If you put the oven on such a low number that the food does not get too hot even if it's in there for 2 hours, you can reheat in it on Shabbat.

The way to tell if it is "not too hot," is to try it at that number during the week, and if you can take something right from the oven and put it straight into your mouth, then it is not too hot.
