the oven

Don't store silicon muffin trays in your oven!!!

This oven's griller is separate from the main oven space 

Our new flatmate wanted to turn on the grill and oven at the same time, to cook the beef wellington that was in the oven compartment

unfortunately he didn't know that the griller drawer was not a warmer drawer, and that it had a silicon muffin tray inside (max temp 250 degrees apparently).  This silicon tray was under 3 tin trays.

Our griller is now caked with patches of molten silicon, quite likely to catch fire the next time the oven/griller goes over "250 degrees"........

 

 

 Its quite stressful in moments like these so some of the English is a bit unintelligible....

"It's empty isn't it? Oh My God its not!"

Warning - some profanity in this video below, still not sure at this stage what caused the fire...
