Default Re: Suggestions for a paint/waterproofer for the dome?

Gudday
Yes it has a hole that goes through to the blanket . Hot air/steam rises and it vents any moisture otherwise I recon if it wasn't there any moisture would condense when you oven cooled. I have no way of measuring how well it works other than I have seen little wisps of steam rising from it . If the oven is damp and that happens from time to time you can feel dampness in the hole when taking the cap off recon it's probably just the heat from the sun on the render surface taking the moisture to the top of the dome
