Dave, a bit off subject I know but what do you think of the Micro combi oven you show in the pic as I have been looking around for one and have had some bad reports on them, like the oven buggers up the turntable after a while. One of these would solve a problem of using my big oven every time I cook a small item.

Very pleased with this one which is a replacement for an LG which suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason after 7 years. It's a Kenwood. Even though it is a convection oven in theory, like its predecessor the top of the oven tends to be hotter than the bottom, particularly if cooking bread over a dish of water as I was here, so I turn the loaf over for the last 10 minutes. We find it invaluable as we have a 90cm oven that you can fit a couple of turkeys in and as you comment is a bit OTT for a single loaf of bread. The previous one had a 40 deg setting which would have been superb for leavening bread but this one starts at 150, so I use Oddley's tip of a dish of boiling water in the base of the oven, which works especially well in the confined space of the combi. I was surprised how cheap they have become, although we got it at a very good price:
