I have 15-year-old cones. Do they bend at the same temperatures as the new cones?

In 1996 Orton reformulated some of their cones, because they could no longer obtain the ingredients they had been using. Several mines closed that year. According to Orton, the newest cone formulas are more consistent the pre-1996 formulas.

Orton released the new cones on 10-28-96. Most of the changes were minor. Example: 05 became 3 deg. F. cooler.

Cones 6 & 7 had the biggest changes in temperature:

Cone 6 before 10-28-96: 2199 Cone 6 after 10-28-96: 2232

Cone 7 before 10-28-96: 2228 Cone 7 after 10-28-96: 2262
