I've never had an electic oven explode. I have never seen a metal element 'blow out' the way this one has. Last night, we found a possible reason it did this. It has six legs and was probably not made of charcoal in its natural state. I think the insect provided a lovely ground for the electrickery flowing through the element making a hotspot...

Is is a bad start to the day when your glass of water, deliberately placed far away from the bed so you have to reach for it, is still knocked over when reaching to turn off the much closer alarm? Is it a worse start when this results in water in your powerboard, which starts to futz, smoke and get incredibly hot?

Good morning world.

The lights flickered, a loud bang and a nasty buzzing sound was heard. I ran to the kitchen to find my oven glowing like the sun at midday. I flicked it off and opened it to find the metal element inside now had a fucking huge hole bitten out of the side.

Great.
