Re: Baking skates
baking skates only speeds up the break in process. It won't magically make them the best fit you've ever had. If you don't have any real hot spots in the boots, baking probably isn't worth it. If there's an area that's being a pain to work in, baking will help with that.
As far as shop vs home, if you have a shop with an oven, use it. Popping them in the oven at home can ruin them if not done correctly and it voids the warranty if something goes wrong.
