Default korkers and elevation?

I live in Colorado so we have the higher elevation and I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed that they need to adjust things with the elevation. I sprayed my korkers with starch and baked then at 275 for an HOUR!!! and they were still limp when I took them out. Just wondering if I really do need to have my oven looked at or elevation could play a roll on my korkers not korking

I can't imagine elevation affecting it. Even so I only bake mine 20-25 min & they kork fine. Are you using grosgrain ribbon & wrapping the ribbon tight with no gaps (you should see no wood except on the very ends).

I was korking a combination of schiff and hobby lobby brand ribbon and wrapped it tight so there was no wood showing. I sprayed it with starch straight from the can. I have yet to be able to make korkers nice and tight. Its driving me nuts!! I guess this means I better have my oven looked at.

Hmmm I would get an oven thermometer and see what temp its really baking at then, you might just need to adjust the temp a little.

This sounds strange but is the oven Gas or electric, becouse i have found that you have to adjust the time and the temp alittle depending on the type of oven. HTH

I live in Denver area and I found that NOT SPRAYING them works better for me AND make sure they are totally cooled before you uncork them but I havent noticed anything different than that
