I finally put my 100 year old Occidental Oven to the test today. I ran this oven for 9 hours straight at 350 degrees while I baked 12 batches of cookies. I baked as they would have 100 years ago using a Hoosier Cabinet and a gas/wood combination stove-oven. From 10:00am to 8:00pm, I did non-stop baking.

Here is 75% of what I baked today. I plan on making the same amount tommorrow.
