The oven has one knob with temperatures on it (in Celsius), one knob with indecipherable pictures...
...and one set of buttons with equally mysterious hints.
Yesterday evening, at Tamar C.'s, I looked at the manual for her oven which seemed to have some symbols in common. Boy, was I far off! The symbol that looked to me like little waves of water? Turns out it was actually little flames of fire, i.e., grill/roast. So, I scribbled down the symbols and their interpretations in my notebook and have so far had two oven successes:
1. Last night I set the clock.
2. Just now I made toast from left-over challah. Delish! (And made more especially so because I was careful in my Hebrew label-reading and had managed to come home with salted butter.)
