Cracked Oven Glass
Ever since I read the BBA, bread baking finally made sense and it finally clicked for me. (Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook's bread section--what a waste!)
I've been been baking bread...a LOT. As much as I can manage it--which is several times a week. I'd probably bake more, but my family and the occasional unsuspecting neighbor can only eat so much so fast.
However--the other day I came across the worst thing ever! I opened my cold oven to put a cookie sheet in it for storage purposes (smallish kitchen) and noticed that the glass on my oven door (the peep thru window) was cracked!!! Not one crack but several.
I'm the ONLY one in my house that uses the oven. And I never slam it. EVER.
What I'm wondering is it possible that it cracked either a)having the oven at 500 on occasion (not normal several months ago) or b) creating steam? or c) just a fluke?
I confess I've baked a few times since noticing this without a noticeable problem..but how long do I have before I need to replace it? Can one replace just an oven door? I've tried looking on the manufacturer's website to no avail.
