We always used ice and salt to clean the glass coffee carafes
I'm the embarrassment of my family.  In almost three score years of life I think I've eaten less than a dozen of those cookies. 
I grew up in that era (at least I assume we are talking about the same era - the 1960's) and I wouldn't travel back in time no matter what.  They were good days to grow up in but the food sucked.  My family did not eat a lot of those processed items that you describe but when we did I generally went to bed hungry.  I would sit at the table and defiantly not eat a bite... until I was the only one left at the table... and the food was cold... and the food was a congealed...
Without more details there can only be a lot of "it depends" in an answer.  But let me try.   I'm assuming a home kitchen environment.   First, your oven takes longer than 10 minutes to really stabilize.  The burner may cycle off for the first time after 10 minutes but that is because the air has reached temp and the rest of the oven generally requires longer to catch up.   Second, the amount of insulation in your oven and the time your oven door is open has a lot to...
