I need to share this news with people who may get just how upsetting it is.
Last night at approximately 6:22pm my oven caught on fire. (I am practicing deep breathing right now just to get through the pain).
I was using the grill (to finish off some glazed chicken breasts with double smoked bacon on top) and smelt something burning. I thought “Wow that was quick”. The bacon wasn’t even beginning to be crispy yet. Then I noticed the smoke coming out of the knob that controls the timer. Not good. We rushed to turn it off at the fuse box and turned off the gas that was being used on the stove top.
There was enough of a fire going on with the electronics that for 5 minutes the oven light glowed due to the fire behind the instument panel we couldn’t get to. The stainless steel top has been burnt black from underneath (on top of said sealed instrument panel).
Not good at all.
Now my cooker is under warranty. It isn’t even a year old yet. But, the last warranty job I had took 11 (very long) months to only get partially fixed. Please feel free to have a word to any oven deities you follow to get my oven back in business.
I am going to have to freeze my leftover challah dough. I may even have to (gasp) buy bread!
One of the small favors is, I had already done next weeks TWD challenge.
We could start a pool where people try and guess how long it takes to get it fixed. The winner could get something appropriate sent to them, like BBQ spices from the NT!
