The other day I was heating up a frozen tortilla in the toaster oven and got distracted and didn’t think about it again until I smelled a burning flour smell from the kitchen. When I went in there the toaster oven was filled with flames so I called Scott in to help me. We had a surreally calm conversation -
“Do you want the fire extinguisher?”
“No, I don’t think so. I think I’m going to try baking soda first.”
and so on, in normal voices as the kitchen filled with smoke. The baking soda worked right away, and after the smoke cleared I looked at the toaster oven and it had these crazy patterns on it - they look like frost patterns, but were formed by heat - anyone know what the reason for this is?
