My son had a great idea.
He’s an absolute genius.
Here’s the backstory.
When we first moved into this house, the oven wouldn’t keep an accurate temperature.
I bought an oven thermometer.
Sure enough, the temp was off by about 10 degrees.
Which wasn’t a problem at all.
I could just make the adjustments.
However, recently, the oven couldn’t seem to hold a steady temperature at all.
I would set it for 350 but it would barely register at 250.
And then it would drop to 100.
We started to shop for a new range.
However, we don’t use the oven much in the summertime.
Maybe we could put off this major purchase for awhile.
Perhaps we can shop around and wait for a sale.
The Genius Son suggested that maybe the oven isn’t broken at all.
Maybe it’s the thermometer that’s broken.
I purchased a new oven thermometer, and set the temp for 350.
The old thermometer barely registered at 200.
The new thermometer registered at 340.
Which is normal since we already know the oven is off by 10 degrees.
Instead of spending thousands of dollars on a new range, we spent $5.00 on a new oven thermometer.
Everyone has a story to tell.
