Your opinions on the ultimate baker's oven please. My lemon must be replaced!

Hello everyone!


I have had it with my Whirlpool self-cleaning convection oven.


I bought it two years ago for the sum of $1,500 plus tax - Not cheap. And yet, it has been problem-plagued ever since.


The trouble began when I started baking bread using the convection feature. The control panel would freeze up and not respond at the end of baking. It had a "touch-sensitive" glass panel, and no matter what I did, it would not turn off.

Fortunately, I purchased a five-year warranty with the appliance.

New Handbook

February 18, 2009 - 9:24am -- sourdough

Having just gotten back from three months of traveling away from my sourdough starter, I was thrilled to find the Handbook on TFL.  It is great!  I was able to browse through the different sections refreshing my memory on bread baking.  I feel the Handbook will be a wonderful resource for newbies as well as those of us with a few loaves of bread under our belts (or over).

Congratulations to all those who were/are involved.
