Silver specks on crust

August 24, 2010 - 1:01am -- carnub

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.

Boo hoo! My oven broke and I need a new one. The old one was constantly shutting itself off mid-bake. I don't have the luxury to choose any oven I want because I rent from my mother-in-law and she will be paying for it. It must be electric, range-top and not too expensive. Any suggestions? Thank you for your help.
