You're not Italian enough to make pizza, sorry. :(

It's the most complex thing to do in cooking.

It's on a par with spelling your own name.

It'll be the first reality TV sit-com.

The pilot episode will feature Jon attempting to change a lightbulb, ending up with him supergluing his face to the ceiling while a herd of bison stamede through his bedroom.

You should take the inside out, and cook that first.

I generally get others to change the light bulb for me

I am afraid of incidents

Fortunately my life is easy because I like my pizza well done. Remember, cook it at a lower temperature for longer (150C usually does it). When it is nice and brown on the top a bit (not burnt though) it is done for my tastes :D

Jon, when the package tells you to preheat the oven...do it. At least 10mins, even more if you have a crappy oven.

Gary
07-02-2005, 08:17:16
Where do they tell you how long a pre-heat takes ? So 10 minutes is enough is it ?

HelloKitty
07-02-2005, 09:17:24
Most ovens made in the last 20 years beep when they reach preheated point.

The ones older than that usually have a thermostat.

Beep? I've never seen a beeping oven. The little orange light switches off.

What third world hell do you come from that has non-beeping ovens!?!?!!

Beeping ovens? The light just goes off when they are hot enough.

Martini

Never trust a normal oven.

The sole reason microwaves were discovered was so idiots like the average CG poster could cook food for themselves. Don't fight nature.

Funkodrom

I learnt an important lesson at the weekend.

Fan ovens cook way, way, way faster than you even think they will after compensating a bit for them being faster.

Well on some, you can set an alarm with either time or temperature, but a beeping oven would annoy the hell out of me.

Do you want me to edit some sick on his picture or is it still too soon?

Martini

I think now would be the perfect time for some editing actually: I am prepared for it, and it may actually put me off falling for drunkards. You never know.

DaShi

I'm just glad I could help.

Funkodrom

Maybe that's not the best idea there's always the practical problem of finding someone who isn't a drunkard.

Actually there is no equivalent word in Turkish either, nor is there an equivalent for the word 'the'. (Un)interesting fact of the day ;)

Light ?!? Beep ?!? I'm not sat in the kitchen waiting for either anyway, even if they happen. I tend to go do something for 15 to 20 minutes and just hope that's enough.

They should put this crap on the side of the frozen dinner package anyway.

Hey I can save myself 5 to 10 minutes of electricity per meal in the future then :)

(I mean those that don't just use boiling water or come out of a frying pan, that is.)

Funkodrom

Frozen dinner package? *shakes head*

I don't have a beeping oven either...and the light doesn't work and it heats unevenly and unreliably.

I'm still a great baker, though. Talent wins out over bad equipment. :D

Funkodrom

Oh *bleep*ing hell this *bleep*ing piece of *bleep* oven as *bleep*ed the *bleep*ing cookies again.

HelloKitty
07-02-2005, 13:24:57
Wow, you people are primative.

growing up we had an oven that dinged when preheated. Hell, even my grandmother had one that buzzed.

Everywhere I have lived I have had one that beeps in some way to announce it is preheated.

Do you all use coal or wood to keep your ovens going so you don't freeze to death in winter? I expect you use wood so You can pull out a flaming stick if the wolves come into your unibomber style shack.

Yup...my coffee maker has a beep beep beep. Annoying as hell

HelloKitty
07-02-2005, 13:28:41
A buzzer that makes a 2 second noise to tell you that you can start cooking is too annoying?

You poor people are sensitive.

Tizzy

My oven buzzes when the timer goes off, it's nice and loud so I can hear it in the other room :)

Funkodrom

I never bother waiting for the oven to heat up anyway, so it'd be pointless.

Mind you, I also don't bake.

It's the opposite of Kitty's. With yours, you know it's hot enough when the buzzing schtops.
