for the baking it's really, really simple. in your home oven you pre-heat it to 200 degrees F. place the skates on the middle rack for 8 minutes. when time is up flip the skates over and bake them for another 8 minutes. take them out and lace them up while sitting in a chair or on the couch with your feet on the floor slightly forward. now sit there until they cool down.
MLX makes videos to show you how easy it is:

as for protection, I took my first shot off of the boot in a scrimmage last night and didn't feel it at all. I'd say the protection is incredible!
