Mom's New Toy

Mom said I had to post about her new toy before I could post about my new toy. I thought that was a little unfair until I was given an extra cookie as a bribe. Of course I said my toy post could wait.
Mom says her oven is a Frigidaire. She couldn't find the info on the Lowe's website to tell you the model. We know it's on the website because Mom and Dad have been looking at it and reading about it for weeks. Mom decided she didn't like the double oven range as much as she thought she would. It seemed kind of small inside the ovens, plus you loose the bottom drawer for storage that Mom really needs because she has so many cake pans. This is what the new range looks like in it's new home.

If you look really close at the window in the door, it looks like Sasha is sitting in the oven. Don't worry though, it was just an extremely rare moment because Sasha was posing for a picture. Usually she hides from the camera. Here's proof she isn't in the oven:

The oven is a convection oven which makes baking 30% faster. The bake times have to be watched really carefully using the convection setting but Mom is okay with that. She made angel food cake (from a mix) the first night and it usually takes about 45 minutes for one to bake, but her's was done in about 30 minutes. There's no pictures of the cake because Mom got impatient and the cake kind of fell and didn't look very good. It tasted good though.

No dog treats have been made yet, but from ease dropping I've learned that some Pupcake ingredients have been purchased and as soon as Mom figures out where she put the new recipe from Hana, we'll get some homemade cookies, too. I can't wait!

Tomorrow I'll tell you about some more fun we had after the range was taken out of the box. I think you all will be so jealous you'll tell your parents they need to go buy a new appliance, too.

did you get some of the angel food cake? Glad you guys got a new oven finally

That is one good looking oven. We can imagine many different types of dog treats coming out of it.

Wow that is so cool. Did you get to taste that angel food cake?
Mom has one of those convection ovens to but hers has a setting that you set it to bake and it automatically will convert it for her..

Hi, Kaos!
Your mom's new toy is pawesome!
I am sure she is going to have lots of fun with it!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Kaos, tell your Mum that a cooker with a single oven and a drawer is better than a double oven 'cos then she wouldn't have to grovel on the floor to take thing out of the bottom oven. Unfortunately this isn't so good for you 'cos you lose the chance to pinch the stuff off the baking tray which would be a your nose level! Enjoy the goodies that your Mum cooks!

We expect some tasty morsels will be produced in the new oven.
Good to read that Sasha wasn't in it, we were a bit worried when we saw the photo!

oh it looks grand!

My Jeannie wants to know if "convection" is the same as what we call here "a fan oven".

We have a fan oven, and no, it doesn't contain any of my fans, I am not that popular I need to cook my fans!

It cooks a lot quicker too than a normal oven. Takes a bit of getting used to she barks.
