This one was much harder to understand, it looks very German (even though some of it clearly isn't), though I suppose a German-speaker would disagree :) (Fjern plast, for instance---plast might be plastic, but fjern I have no idea about.)

Your English translation has 'champignons'. I thought that was the French word for mushrooms; do these differ from mushrooms somehow?

I'm afraid I don't get this one. What's the 4-5? Short for 400--500 degrees F? Gas ovens down under are always marked in the temperature appropriate for when it was made (i.e. anything after the mid-to-late-70s or whenever we metricated are in celsius, but if you have a really ancient thing like my sister's it's in fahrenheit). -- Tristan.
