    Sorry to hear that Chris.
    We've used our oven in the past, set to the lowest heat and wedged the door open with a wooden spoon. It works well

    Hi Thrud

    The brand is "5 Star Chef" (5 tray model). Up to the point the heating element died, it was apparently working well - so maybe I just got a dud. The reviews are reasonable for this model.

    Hi Wentworth

    Yes, I used a wooden spoon to keep mine slightly open to allow air moisture to escape. Works very well.

    Those Nice people from OzLivingPlaza (via eBay) sent me a new one which has done 3 batches so far without problem, so it seems the original one was obviously just a dud!

    Plus I get to keep the trays from the dud one so I now have 10! Whoo Hoo!

    Proposed schedule:

    For anybody who wants to get their name in the Bibb Track record books, the fastest "End to End" (Kalamunda - Albany) is just 15 days!

    To put that into context, that equates to 1.5+ marathons a day for 15 straight days!!

    A bloody good effort by anybodies standards.......
