listen for the sputtering chicken

A microphone for the inside of the oven, with a wireless earpiece.

       Yeah! How else are you going to hear the chicken whistle!?

       I hope it comes with an instructional DVD telling me what each pop, sizzle and fuzz mean. And if you have a whistling chicken, it should come with a chromatic tuner to tell you if it is F# or all G. Haha.

       I'd be curious what flames would sound like from that vantage point.

       I confess myself confused. What purpose would this serve? so you wouldn't have to open it and let heat escape?

       [Bane] If I have understood correctly, it is to make yourself feel tempted.   

       With experience, probably one would also be able to tell just by listening, to what extent baking had been completed.

       "Just for informational reasons, 165 deg for 5 min and then 10-15 min of resting (out of the oven on a counter) would be proper for a chicken."
from [chefboyrbored].
I wonder if an oven micophone would be like a baby monitor. A Noise! What..does...it...mean? Run into the baby's room---The baby is fast asleep-you? You are wide awake full of adrenaline. (repeat every 15 min's) Two weeks of this and you are certifiably insane.

       //What purpose ...//   

       Roasting/baking foods make different sounds as they cook. The wheeeeeee of the baking potatoes diminishes, chickens suddenly start sputtering, roast swan makes a sound like "miser! miser!"   

       With most ovens, you have to sit by the oven the whole time to listen. With this, you can just listen while you do the laundry or clean the prep dishes.   

       With the optional clip-on bread thunker, you can test your baguettes by remote control.   

       With the optional countdown probe, a celebrity cook speaks the temperature in 5 degree increments once the roast reaches a certain doneness.
