My oven. When we moved to this house, nearly 15 years ago, something
must have gotten jogged in the stove settings. The oven no longer
tracked correct temperatures and all baking recipes needed either
half as much extra time added or 25-50 degrees added, or both.
After more than a decade of dealing with it my husband casually
remarked that he could re-calibrate the thermostat. We bought an oven
thermometer. We dug into our files and located the stove manual and
instructions. We were ready for repairs.
My oven remains jogged. I think I finally put away the thermometer
from its perch next to the stove (ready for action). I may as well re-
file the manual... and wait until a new stove is required. Then I'll
have to unlearn the automatic feat of re-calibrating recipes.
