My birthday is coming up

and I will gladly accept contributions toward this very appropriate gift.  You know, if everyone on TFL donated just a dollar, I'm sure I'd have the cost covered, as well as enough to restock my flour supplies   :-)

Cuisinart Combo Steam and Convection OvenBake, roast and steam foods, all in one machine. Using the Cuisinart steam oven, you can prepare everything from tender roast chicken to loaves of crusty bread.

After reading the reviews, this might not be a great birthday gift.

you are right, carefreebaker.  I read them after I posted on TFL.  Sigh.

I guess I'll have to wait for hubby to get that juicy raise he's expecting and hold out for the full-size steam oven...

The Brod & Taylor folding proofer would be a terrific gift for any bread baker.  Certainly less $$$ than that questionable Cuisinart and a much better value.  Drop a few hints to your hubby.  ;-)

...someday.  It is the first small model on the market, and tehre are bound to be some problems.  Ditto Lindy's suggestion for the proofer.  I have experimented with that thing so much that I haven't used the folding feature of it - I just have it on a TV tray in the entrance to my dining room!  But then, there isn't anyone around to knock it over...except me.

I haven't purchased this and I was wanting to see if anyone here has any experience using this oven.  Being so small inside, you have to wonder what the engineers were thinking.

I feel your pain, John.  I just learned I will be celebrating my birthday at my daughter's marching band's Home Show.  And if I'm really good, I might be able to go out for some fro-yo or Dairy Queen soft serve afterwards...

I'm going to toast and butter a piece of Leader's Alpine Baguette now, to drown my sorrows.

is before the Lois & Clark's wedding when Oliver says to Chloe something along the lines of ...now that we're married are we supposed to buy a Cuisinart?

Lol!  Love it!   (Smallville - Finale)
