The oven is warming up for it's maiden voyage. The top oven heated up real fast, since it's a single rack oven. The lower oven is warming up pretty fast too. We'll see how fast the boil water heats up, inside the huge pot that the old oven couldn't keep at a boil. But the new oven (maybe I should name it) has a burner that can be used for 8, 10 or 12 inch heat surface. We'll see what 12 inches of hot surface does to a huge pot of water within the next half hour. The pot may also be deep enough to keep a cap on it but not worry about boil over between batches, not possible with the 8 qt boil pot.

I'm feeling nearly overwhelmed with the idea of doubling production at one time. Two dozen bagels take up a lot of space. I'm working on how to arrange everything to make it possible. The advantage is that I'll be able to do an entire day's baking in a day, rather than late into the evening. Now it's a matter of arranging stuff in my tiny kitchen to hold twice the sheet pans and proofing containers that I used only a week ago.

In case I didn't mention it apocalypticbob, the Bob flavored bagels sold real well and were loved by all. I could smell the rosemary when I opened up the tote bin to set them out for sale. Rosemary, yum.

W00T! I'm glad to hear it! Everyone should have a bite of Bob!


I look forward to trying them next time we are going to be in the same place at the same time with enough advance warning.

You should definitely name the oven! Maybe "Mount Doom." =D
