...never mind. The formatting is being a bit tricky. I'm tempted to blame the new design, but I ultimately doubt it has anything to do with the issue.

Undertale item. Would it be a spoiler, by the way? [[spoiler]]'d it just to be sure, anyways.

* A recipe-based variation in ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'': Roger needs eight bananas for banana pudding but only has six, so he comes up with the brilliant idea of subtracting 2 from everything. The resulting goo isn't very appetizing on its own, but it turns out to be fantastic as a pizza topping. ** Note that this is ''almost'' a valid cooking method: If he really wanted to make a smaller recipe, he could have reduced each ingredient by 1/4 of its original amount. Close, but still so wrong.

* Lampshaded to such an extreme that a literal lamp was involved in the ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "Moon Farm." When Ferb relates a recipe for "Lamb Cobbler" to Candace and Stacy through Phineas and Irving [[ItMakesSenseInContext from the moon]], the only part that correctly gets through the traditional telephone-game messups (e.g. "One pound of ''lamp''") is the cooking time, 350 for 1 hour. With only five minutes to spare, Stacy declares "It's simple math!" and proceeds to cook it at not the mathematically logical 4,200 degrees, but instead 9,000. [[SubvertedTrope It comes out perfectly]], leading Stacy to wonder "How can that be? We didn't even put lamb in it!" ** FridgeBrilliance: 350 F = 450 K, multiply by 12 then convert back to F and you have 9256 degrees or so. *** Or would that be... Oven Brilliance? ''{{rimshot}}''

* An early episode of (I believe) ''ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse'' applied this logic to clothes washing. If washing a load of clothes with a standard-sized scoop of detergent gets them clean for the next week, so the kids figured, washing them with the whole box of detergent should get them clean for the next few ''months!''

* ''SciFiDebris'' sums it up in his review of the ''Voyager'' episode, "Flashback". "What kind of cook thinks that increased heat equals less cooking time? A bad one!"

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/VoltronForce'', Hunk builds an enormous contraption that turns out to be a jet fuel-powered grill to cook a side of ribs bigger than he is. It instantly burns the meat to ash, then blasts itself through the roof and explodes.

* The show ''MANswers'', a show designed to answer "manly" questions, posed the question "What else [besides an automobile] could you put a HEMI engine into?" Their number 1 answer: a "HEMI grill", which could cook 240 hot dogs in 3 minutes. Whether or not this invokes Oven Logic depends on whether the engine is there to increase the grill temperature or speed up airflow.

* A version of this occurs in ''IronWokJan''. Jan is a skilled chef, but because he was raised alone by his grandfather, he has no idea how to cook for more than five people. When he starts working at the Gobancho restaurant, he tries to cook vegetables for fifty people by taking the recipes his grandfather taught him and multiplying all of the quantities of food by ten. The end result is deemed a failure. He realizes his mistake later: [[spoiler: all of the additional vegetables add too much water and make the dish too juicy.]]
