Thanks for the information! Bought one on ebay today. The seller had two. The Buy It Now price is high. I made an offer, and probably still paid too much when I accepted the counter offer, but I've been looking for quite a while and have a birthday coming up.
You'll love it! I make all kinds of things in mine. I made brownies yesterday to take to a friend's house for dessert. I make pita pizzas, meat loaf, baked chicken, potatoes, banana bread, and just about anything that you would make in a sticks and bricks oven.
Mine was like that too. It's well used now!
Lining the bottom of the pan with parchment paper makes it easier to remove quick breads and keeps them from getting as scorched. I haven't had a lot of luck with full loaves of yeast bread but rolls cook okay.
