    It means what it says. What it means in any particular instance depends
    on the context in which it is applied and what it is applied to. I
    generally understand an intensive heat stress applied in order to remove
    residuals from the manufacturing process.

    Default bake-off and ...?

    I heard this term "bake-off" for some product testing. What does
    "bake-off" mean? What other terms such as "bake-off" are there? This term
    was used during an interview. I am not familiar with this term.

    Any explanation appreciated.

    Thank you.

    It might also mean a general contest, by ogy with baking (as in
    "baking a cake") contests.

    Couldn't find any translation only www.bakeoff.com showing some
    "bake-off(TM)" test, which seems to be some cooking contest?

    It means the interviewer has no idea how to conduct an interview, or
    anything about computers.
