“Tempered”, “Roasted”, “baked” or 'cooked' woods are exposed to temperatures of 350° to 425° Fahrenheit (about 180°-220° Celsius). They are "cooked" in a vacuum chamber so that there is no flame or burning. The process is called 'torrefaction'. There are number of positive results with tempered wood including a darker color, greater stability, feel, and tone.
