How can I bake or make bread without using my oven during the summer?

Late last year a few friends and I started an informal bartering club. My contribution is baked goods, usually bread of some kind, but as the first heatwave of the season kicked in I realized I’m going to need an alternative to oven baking. Cooks and bakers of MeFi, hope me some bready recipes that I can make during red flag season. [more inside]

What should I know about different oven settings?

My oven has the following settings:"Circotherm" (IE, convection); top/bottom heat; "Circotherm intensive" (which seems to be convection + bottom heat); "Circo-roasting" (convection + grill); full-surface grill; center-area grill; bottom heating; low-temperature cooking; and defrost. I know that convection cooks things faster, so I need to reduce either heat or cooking time when adapting recipes. What else should I know to take full advantage of all these different modes?

It's cute but it doesn't cook.

I'm considering renting a small apartment with a super-tiny kitchen. So tiny that it doesn't have an oven! Would a convection/microwave oven suit my needs? Also, do you have experience with induction cooktops? [more inside]

Vintage non-electric , gas burner based oven?

A few decades ago there was this enamel coated oven contraption, resplendent with a small glass door that slid down, that you'd put on the gas burner, it would heat up from below and could then be used as an ordinary baking device. It had virtually no inner parts, aside from maybe a coil. They had them in Europe and Israel - what were they called? Are they still made? (It isn't the Wonder Pot).
