My husband just emailed me this article on lifehacker, I knew about putting a pizza stone in a home oven to regulate temperature but I've never heard of using sugar to test temperature. Just thought I'd share!

getting ready to start on my third new stove since March...they cannot get their technician's calibrations to stay...this time around, I am changing models icon_smile.gif

Next time, it may be easier to get a really nice pizza stone (broke my last one)...

what stove do you all find to be the most reliable?
