And I did not attempt to clean anything before I took the pictures, either.

The only dirt was a grey tint above and below the oven, where the
convection had deposited all non-gaseous dirt. I have a few of these,
two of which have appear to have actual corrosion (rust red spots) on
the outside, but are just as clean inside. I wonder what that does to
the magnetic properties to the case.

So far the page has had 243 non-bot visitors, 20 people downloaded all
the full resolution images, and it cost me 10GB this week. An impressive
figure considering the topic.
