As all of you who have visited here know, hamara trusty bajaj has been delivering bread and cakes and assorted bakes for 19+ years. So when the thermostat gave up the ghost a couple of months back, we were handicapped to say the least. Toll-free numbers took a toll on our sanity, and authorised service centres said that there were no authorised spare parts for this ancient model.

But eventually, in Salem, we found a place where thermostats were just thermostats, and since the old one couldn’t be removed (being encrusted with 19 years of baking grime :-), the new one gives our oven a new look.
