I have a new problem.
I make chocolate chip bar cookies for my husband's classes occasionally.
I made some this afternoon, and it smelled like something was burning, but dough was still raw so I assumed it was something on the element.
Pulled them out, they looked perfect- but one corner only on the bottom were black. The tops were barely golden.
I asked my husband if it could be the element and he said no. But he doesn't always 'know' what he knows and what he assumes.
Why only half the pan? The rack was in the same place as usual, no change, same pan...?
Can half of an element burn out?
It is a 20 year old oven, It seems like we just got it, but It feels that way with my son too. I am pretty sure we just unpacked the oven and brought the kid home from the hospital. Time flies.
20 years for your something sounds pretty good to me, probably time to replace. Just the oven...not the boy.
