I lived in Denver for 20 years (Austin, TX prior to that) and never had to make any adjustments for altitude for roasting or normal oven cooking. Only for baking (cookies, breads, cakes, etc.) or anything that required boiling.

The new oven/microwave got installed yesterday. Finally figured out why it was so expensive. The microwave also will function as a regular oven, warming oven, warm place to put the bread in to rise, and it is a microwave. The main oven is also a convection oven. Still reading the manual.

Cool!

Does either oven give you the chance to add a burst of steam as well? Our normal oven gives us that option for bread, but we've never used it. We do use the steam oven for steaming and rarely use it as a conventional oven.

My parents' microwave also acts as a regular oven which is rather convenient. Before they had two ovens, with one oven normally used to store cereal, and with a microwave oven on the counter. They had to cut down on how many boxes of cereal they had open at one time. No more storage space!

Haven't gotten that far in the owners manual yet.

The burst of steam is a cool feature which I didn't know was available. High humidity is used with sour dough bread in particular to give the crust chewiness over crispness.

There's nothing quite like trying to bite into a slice of sourdough and suddenly worrying that you're going to chip a tooth.

This sounds like my BFF, but they stored chips in the oven. She was talking about baking (to heat the room) the other day, but first she had to find someplace to put the chips!
