I dunno, if you live with other people, they put things in there for preparation or something, I would guess you would need to check it before you preheat.

Because baking and cooking isn't serious and shouldn't be taken cautiously. I don't know, I wouldn't like to ruin an expensive oven with melted chocolate and plastic.

My oven is used for storing things like pot and pans. I would think most people would use it to do the same. It only takes two seconds to check if there's anything in the over. I bet the OP won't make that mistake again.

No you're right, the OP should have checked the oven before turning it on. That's one of the first rules of cooking in a place where more than one person uses the facilities. When I lived with my parents they used to put skillets of grease or pizza in the oven. Hopefully the OP has learned for next time.

I agree with Redmane; this is an FML because the OP accidentally melted their own gift, but more importantly, it's a YDI because they didn't check the oven before turning it on. Check your ovens before operating them, people! House fires are serious business.

It's the whole hiding Easter eggs and baskets thing people do. It was her fault she turned the thing on in the first place, an her parents fault for putting it there. No need to get super personal, it was a suggestion, and a good one at that. I thought you said you didn't mean to be rude or critical. This is kind of slamming how baking or cooking should be done. Sorry.

Your :) comments :) are :) unnecessary :) and :) unintelligent :) many people do use appliances for storage, even occasionally. in fact, I don't know many people who, if not doing it themselves, are unfamiliar with the practice.

I'd have to agree that this isn't entirely their fault. 'Just the way she likes them.' To me, that infers that she usually cooks for her mom (or it could be another family member who does, just my guess) and, as used to cooking, it's routine to just immideately preheat. Just my thought but I'm probably looking too far into it. lol

Redmane I sure hope nothing unfortunate ever happens in your world. If something does and you feel sorry for yourself, you're going to be eating from a bowel of hypocrisy. It seems insanely cynical to suggest that OP honestly deserves to have his/her Easter present fried because OP was trying to do something nice for his/her mother. But I guess by the number of thumbs up and support you have you're not the only one! Happy Easter though right!?

I always check before I turn it on. Sometimes a baking or broiler pan gets left in when the food gets taken out. It's nice to check to make sure but her parents shouldn't have put her basket there.

I love how everyone is just adding more about using their appliances for storage but it does not change the fact that not everyone does. If you do, it would be to stupid not to check. But if you do not it is unnecessary. I just do not understand how y'all do not get this. It's a pretty simple idea to understand. Check your ovens, I don't care. But I am not stupid for not doing it considering nothing is stored in my oven, ever. And it was not OP's fault because she most likely does not have to either and this was a freak accident.

I wouldn't care what others think about my grammar. I have good grammar but this is FML and on a phone I am not going to add a comma for everything. And its fire safety if it's a hazard. If it's not then it's just, must I say again, unnecessary.

Reply

119- I never said that she deserves her Easter stuff to be fried, I just said that she should have checked it beforehand. Hopefully she learns from her mistake and checks the oven from now on.

Reply

And before anyone ever told me to check, I've fried stuff in the oven in the past. That is why I said shoulda checked it first. I learned from my mistake.

Reply

133- are you suggesting that you know for sure that OP lives in a house like yours? Both of our suggestions are hypothetical. We don't know how OP's home works. By the little information we are given, we can't assume.

Reply

I live with six other people, and we storage pans and stuff in a drawer, but we still check if it's anything in the over for safety-reasons. For all we know someone could have forgotten something in the oven the night before or something?

PaulB123 - I'm sorry, unfortunate things have happened to me. Not just breakups and crap like that. Like death of a parent from a terminal disease type things. Am I eating from a "bowel of hypocrisy"? No, I'm not drowning in shit. And if that's what you picked up from those four words in my comment, you my friend are the cynical one.

Poor eggs :P but nice try.. Atleast you were thinking of your mom But seriously the first thing that came to my head when i saw this FML was, my mom telling me to "always check before you preheat!" lol

Reply

This is why you always check first. That is the first thing they teach us in these classes at school. Still, I feel sorry for you. I hope you at least got something else. FYL, OP.

That's actually a cool idea, my family has never hidden their baskets, we hid eggs with candy in them and do a whole search after our baskets, but we've never searched for our baskets - I'll have to suggest this. Tit for tat - we use different coloured eggs and per each colour there is one shiny one appropriately deemed the "money egg" and there's everything from $2 - $20 dollars in one, then we pick our colours randomly and go searching, how much money you get is in the luck of the draw. (this may potentially work better with at least three searching kids, me I'm an only child but I have nine cousins and they reproduce so the number is well and high, therefore decreasing the issues behind how much money you got as it isn't a black and White winner and loser situation)
