This isn't a complaint, because I honestly don't know if it is normal or not. Maybe it's just my cook's brain associating things oddly. Has anyone else noticed a distinctly 'yeast' smell while punching out their counters? I imagine it could be from dies, glues, or laminates involved in the process. It just kept popping up as I sat gleefully punching out the tends of pounds of counters.
I did notice an odor in mine, but I would describe it more like a paint smell than yeast. I just attributed it to "new game smell" and moved on.
