Oven died

with 13 comments

Either I was getting too close to the inner secrets of true artisan baking and the gods had to punish me or it was just a matter of time before it had to happen. Either way, my oven cratered. It blew the main fuse and now it can reach 150°C maximum.

Hey, I still can reheat rice and lasagne. Stay tuned for recipes on how to transform food from the fridge into a perfectly warm dish.

If anyone wants to know, the oven was a low-end Siemens, probably built in late 90s. Considering that it was used for things it wasn’t designed for sometimes twice a week for the last couple of years…thumbs up! Parting with it would be a sad thing.

I still have my pizza oven. Woot!

  3. Oh no! No thoughts of transforming this into an “artisan bread in the microwave” blog then? No? :0)

    • The grill still works, so perhaps flat breads are still an option before turning to the microwave :-D

  4. Where and how can I get inspired??? Stone ofen is what you need!

    • Preferably an unbreakable one made from lava stone. I’m lost looking for a replacement for kitchen though.

  6. How’s it going with your oven, Nils?

    You know, we need consumers to start spending more money in order to get the European economy back on track…

    • Hi Hans Joakim,

      so they say. The new oven is on its way. I hope to have a working oven soon.

      I am using the time to make an e-book with all recipes from the site. Also made malt and dried sourdough. Anything having to do with baking is fine :-)

      • Wow, great news Nils!

        Hope you had a nice summer!

        • Well, the kitchen was certainly uncontaminated by flour *g*
