I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Piral Dish Cracked!

    I have been using piral dishes for some time now but yesterday one cracked in the oven???? It has a sizable crack from the middle to the end. Anyone else have this problem? Should I not be using it in the high heat oven??
    Thanks

    John

    Piral is supposed to be suitable for use in high-temperature ovens, so I don't think it's the heat per se. Did you hydrate it and season it before your first use?

      The dish was seasoned and we used regularly in the oven but not at this high heat before. Oven was around 750 degrees F this time. We have used it before for roasting potatoes, squash etc. @ 500 degrees F Not sure what to do or not do with my other piral dishes and temps. We have an e-mail into the distributor we purchased from, but alas, with the Hurricane Sandy damage we haven't heard a reply back yet.

        Did you cycle it from cold to hot too suddenly? Like straight from the freezer to the 750 degree oven? Piral is supposed to take up to 750 to 800.

          Nope, It went from the cupboard (70 degrees F)to the kitchen counter, filled with beef bones, covered with foil and placed in the throat of the oven. I then rotated the dish several times to ensure even heat. Here are a couple of pics.

            That's an odd looking crack, too. Wait for the vendor to respond, I suppose.

              What is the dish made from?

                It's a terracotta dish.

                  I gave up using all clay type cookware in my wood oven. I think it is the pushing in over the rough surface of the oven floor that cracks that rather brittle clay cookware. I have tried a number of types, but they all break. Use metal. It can take the sliding over a rough surface and not be affected.
