This is my cauldron. I stopped heating it with an open fire as it got a bit messy in the kitchen. It was also a nuiscance wearing my pointy hat and muttering incantations every time I cooked something. I decided to go modern and used an electric oven, although that also has its disadvantages.
Today I decided to give it a clean. It was necessary, for the photo of course as well. Baking bread needs very high temperatures, 240°C to be exact and that tends to leave its mark on the various surfaces of the oven. The back surface was the worst, everything full of brown streaks. However, no problem. Probably I can remove the door to simplify cleaning methods, but I never got the hang of that. So after a few acrobatics I managed to clean my cauldron. No more double bubble or toil and trouble, now just “You have to lean to get it clean”. I know there are still a few brown marks, but they too will one day disappear. I just cannot remember the correct incantation for making them disappear. Perhaps “Out damm spot” although I think I am getting a little mixed up but the oven hell can be murky according to Lady MacBeth.RDP Thursday: Cauldron
