When I bought my skates I got them baked at the shop, but my wife wanted a pair so she could skate with me every now and again so we got her a cheaper pair at Sports Authority and obviously they were not going to bake them.

When she initially put them on the boot was not snug to her foot at all so I figured I would bake them for her. Being that the skates were not that much and she was not a serious skater I thought it would be worth the risk.

I followed these instructions from ice warehouse on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBqRt701oZQ

The instructions were really easy to follow and since it was ice warehouse and not just some dude on youtube I trusted it a little more.

The results were great as the boot now wraps around her foot and is much more comfortable.

There are some risks as others said but the temps used in the video are pretty low and the time in the oven is not very long. You need to decide if the risk is worth it for you or not.
