I just tried to get my oven repaired for the 2nd time in 14 months . The repairman said the steam may have cooked the electronics. Now I need a new stove/oven. The steam vents are directlly under the timer and controls. Thanks for any ideas. Patrick from Modesto
I have just acquired a used industrial oven and started baking in it over the weekend. It was pretty dirty inside and had to use of lot of chemical cleaner (It is 17 years old and seen a lot of use - not exclusively bread).
After baking a few loaves, I've noticed that the exposed crust is covered with silver specks (couldn't photograph it - they are small), something like glitter. The baking paper was dusted liberally with a slightly coarse semolina flour.
