[CnD] Digital ovens

Ah, okay. This might be something to mention to the mice, then, as ovens
tend to have some variance between models and sometimes within a model line.
This is the single biggest difficulty I have in the kitchen. (I worked in
restaurants back in my sighted days, even managing one, so my kitchen skills
are atypical) If I could master this one challenge my kitchen would give me
no problems at all, save for keeping it stocked with all the ingredients I
need to make everything.

As of yet, there is not an actual talking oven thermometer.
If you can get some sighted assistance, turn on the oven at 350 and 
let it heat up.
Have your sighted amigo read the temperature from the thermometer inside.
There should be an adjustment on the back of the temperature dial 
that can e changed to give you a more accurate temperature.

Some folks have used the talking cooking thermometer we sale for $36 
to check their oven temp but is not 100% accurate.
The thermometer cannot be left in the oven as it is an instant read 
thermometer and the casing is plastic.
Not god in a hot oven.
