Our electric oven has a range that runs 25 degrees above and below the "set" temperature. It averages out to the right temp, but should it keep the min/max temps closer to the set value? Or is this range normal?

It depends on how the control used on it was designed and whether the appliance is gas or electric.

Generally, a gas range thermostat will usually have a much narrower on/off temperature differential. For an electric ranges, a 50°F differential may be normal especially for an older model whose control may no longer be working 100%.
