    Colin,

    From what I've heard, an oven isn't complete until it's fully cured and broken in (experienced) and it sounds like that's exactly what you're doing!

    Hi Dave

    How did you manage to so that seed.
    That's why
    I borrowed one from my uncle and have not stopped using it. I am sealing anything I can find. Hmmmmmmm haven't tried the missus yet . He had never used it other than when he first got it.

    I have ordered one from Harvey Norman with a marinade feature lots of containers, roles a bit more expensive at 299 but asked for reduction they dropped to 225, last one in shop.

    I now vacuum seal all meat. Leftovers, veges into serving sizes, sandwich meat. Pizza toppings, including cheese, and anything else, eg basil lasted 3 weeks and was still ok.

    Dave get your bags online muchmuch cheaper.

    I copied the info over to that thread. Might i suggest people occasionally lift out to the top of the Aussie thread

    Ok have purchased a vacuum sealer and been sealing everything I can. Flour coffee bean, vegetables.you name it or gets sealed.

    OVEN UPDATE

    Nothing done since Xmas, a couple layers of render and obtained some bulllnose decorative arch bricks the same as my house, took me 4 weeks to obtain once I sourced them. Drive post every day I was at work. So close but but just couldn't get them to my place, proprietor had no clue. But have them now so I can finish hopefully between now and Easter.

    Anyone know if the Caputo flour is also available in Brisbane somewhere? Hopefully for the same price you gents are getting it in Melbourne.

    edit: ah I just read a few pages back that oasiscdm posted a contact number in QLD so will give that a try, thanks!

    edit2: we really should be discussing the flour in its specific thread so it is easier for other people to find.
    Might make a post in there.

    Link/updated in the thread:

    The steaks, chicken etc that we have cooked have been amazing. Because it is temp controlled every mm of food is cooked exactly as required (rare, medium etc) and because it is vacuum sealed no moisture escapes at all.
    I enjoy the food from this style of cooking but have some issues about what volatile petro-chemicals are released from the plastic when heat is applied. The temps used in the process may not get to the point that makes things nasty but it depends on what you read I suppose.

    I might stick to the natural flame generated heat processes until the jury comes back. Works for me and if you want slow cooked, the WFO does that to perfection. No plastic involved.

    Just my humble opinion.

    Hmm 70 vs 270. Hmmmm. Might have to go cheaply. If it dies, then spend up on quality.

    I guess 2 years use would say it's good value.

    My Aldi one was about $70
    $14 for a box with 2 rolls of bags in it.
    Its been going for 2 or 3 years now.
    Just got another box of bags, in a roll, a few weeks back.(still $14).

    Its earned its keep just in no freezer burns on fish
    Let alone bulk flour and rice and everything else.

    I have enough food stored for the zombie apocalypse

    Curious that's one expensive vac, googled it. Did you get it cheaper than what I saw. Don't think i could justify that price with swmbo
    Had them on special I think around the $270 mark with lots of extra bag material. If you save $1.00 or so for each kilo will only take 10 bags of Caputo to break even.

    But good for storing toppings etc. also, I grow home vegetables which I blanch and freeze so you could get away with saying its multi purpose?

    Got a vacuum packer (Unika) from Sydney boat show last year, come with lots of bags and rolls of bag making tubes, you can get them direct from Munro.
    I get 10kg bags and split into 1kg lots and freeze. Not sure how long you could store but would have to be 12 months +.

    Well i tried the Caputo . I must say I need wow. Light crispy, taste is just too die for compared to other fours I've tried. Have tried the light house, wallaby. But this flour is just better all round. I made an Olive oil and garlic small amount of cheese, kanji, sees me seeds and a little habonero chilli. I wanted the base to be the star. All I can say is was worth the effort in ditching the flour.

    The Lighthouse brand pizza flour, available at Coles supermarkets in 1kg boxes makes excellent pizza dough. I buy 12.5 kg bags of Allied Mills pizza flour from a wholesale food supplier at a good price.
