Quick update on my Cadco oven. It took an electrician doubling as an oven mover helper, an amateur plumber, and a fan, but it's now up and running, and I am starting to learn to use it. No surprise but it requires lower temperature AND shorter baking time. This fig anise bread took 30 minutes total, at first 400F, then 350F, then 300F as I kept lowering it to keep the crust from getting too dark before the inside could bake. It looks a bit lonely in there doesn't it, but no way am I going to bake a big load of bread before I get to know its ways. The fan on top is the amateur climate control specialist's solution to fluid condensing on the wall behind the oven. Works like a charm. No need for the $1000 condenser.
Onward and upward.
