Good point about the oven cleaner. I'm going to keep that in mind now that I have a new one and no kids to help me wreck it.

Right away this recipe came to mind:

12-15 lb. turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good)
1 cup uncooked popcoorn (ORVILLE REDENBACHER'S LOW FAT) salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter, salt and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of he oven. Listen for the popping sounds.
When the turkey's ass blows the oven door open and the bird flies across the room, it's done.

thank you. ha ha ha

I would have rather had popcorn and a turkey be the cause of the exploding door and not have had to ask my son about it.

I baked and cooked on the new stove yesterday and today. (baked beans, short ribs, pizza) I don't want it to get dirty. It's much taller (by 3 inches) than the last one--I feel like I have to cook on my tip toes.
I make yogourt in a canning jar. I tie the heating pad around it with a string. Then I just slip the canning jar into the pad and out again when finished. I sometimes put a small cup under the jar, so the heating pad goes down below the bottom of the jar.

I put plastic wrap on the jar instead of a lid and poke a thermometer through the plastic wrap and leave it there, so I can keep an eye on the temperature.

I would not use that stove again. Call your insurance guy (or gal) and get a new one asap. Oops, I guess you've already done that. Glad all is well.

I make a gallon of yogurt at a time in my picnic cooler. I put the milk into widemouth quart jars with lids, and pour about a gallon of hot water into the cooler. It stays nice and warm all night.

To make smaller quantities, 'invest' in one of those styrofoam bait buckets--that will hold one jar and keeps it cozy for 8 hours or so.

If I had the space to put such a thing, that's what I would use.

Kudos to Sparrowgrass for using the more environmentally friendly method.
