Steam in home ovens - how many have you destroyed?
Just wondering how many home ovens other bakers have been through. My death toll is about 1.5 so far. We bought a second home oven this summer and it seems on the verge, hence the .5.
Any experience with repairing these? The one that is dead is a very cheap model, although in the 5 to 10 yr old range. I think both the temp probe and element are shot. The top (broiler) element still works and can heat up the quarry tiles and make nice pitas, at least. Any guestimates on price to for parts being less than another over? I'm sure i could find something comparable for under $150 on CL.
I'm glad the first oven made it as long as it did. Running a home oven 16+hrs straight at high temps with steam surely is not what it was designed for!
