Granted, it's my fault for not waiting until the oven was preheated. Because apparently my new, wonderful, amazing double oven has heating elements on both the top and bottom...on both ovens.
I'm assuming that during the pre-heating period, both the top and bottom elements are used in order to get the oven up to temperature more quickly. So I guess that from now on I'll have to actually wait to put stuff in there until after the pre-heating period. Which is going to be tough as I'm not exactly the most patient person in the world.
So I waited for the pre-heating cycle to finish then popped the breads back in with a tinfoil cover over them. I wasn't going to let a little charred bread discourage me from having this for breakfast:
|Don't kid yourself, that wasn't the only piece I had.|
So I'm still working out the kinks, but I'm still pretty darned pleased with my new oven.
Now if we could just get the counter tops and back splash finished.........
