You see... many of the American's that I've met here affectionately call their oven their "Barbie oven". When I heard the term, it totally fit since well... the ovens seem to be a good size for Barbie. My old German oven didn't fitting my cookie sheets, some of my glass cookware and definitely would not fit a turkey for Thanksgiving! Most things are smaller here and they make great use of the small spaces. A bigger oven is a huge blessing, especially for someone that is really enjoying baking and cooking (Me!)!!
My old oven wasn't sealing properly and so things weren't cooking right and it was very old with no broiler, only one rack and just basic. Our wonderful landlord decided it was well worth the investment to order the house a new oven. So, can I just brag a bit? Okay :) My new oven ROCKS. It came with a convection button (works like a charm), a grill feature (who woulda thought?), a special setting just for cooking pizza (it's like the manufacturer knows us!) and with two racks and two special trays for pizza or cookies! Yup, things taste better in my new oven! Thanks for celebrating with me.
