I remember reading a blog about a rather eccentric gentleman in New York that liked to bake pizzas at 850-900F in his oven.
He managed to achieve this temperature by rigging the switch for the self-cleaning cycle so that the oven thought it was always locked, and then using the self-cleaning cycle to cook the pizzas.
Apparently the downside to this is that it only takes a single drop of sauce on a ~850F piece of oven glass to make it explode; so being careful while inserting said pizza is an understatement.
Clearly if there were no windows you couldn't accidentally make them explode.
