I am always curious about the placement of shelves in my oven. I usually use a middle shelf by default. Do you have guidelines for baking certain dishes on top, middle, or bottom oven shelves?

I generally bake or roast everything exactly in the middle of the oven, unless I'm using two sheet pans, in which case I'll space them evenly. However, If I'm doing a large roast, I want the roast in the middle, not the pan in the middle, so I'll adjust the rack accordingly.
