I love to cook, and baking is like my therapy. My hobby came to an abrupt halt one year when my oven began to act up. I made batches of cookies the same way I always had, yet I had to carefully watch them or they would burn or come out of the oven still looking like dough. I had a repairman fix my oven, and it still never seemed to work well like it did years ago. I was almost going to call another repair-person, but I decided enough was enough and I was just going to replace my oven. My new oven was the best investment I had ever made, and I regretted not purchasing a new one sooner. I created this blog to encourage others having trouble with appliances to know when to replace them. Don't repair them over and over if they are older.
