Downside of using Home oven for Proofing - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Downside of using Home oven for Proofing

    I use my home oven to proof my bread, up until today it has worked well but for some reason my significant other decided to bake some dog treats today and turned up the home oven to 375 for pre-heat, Well.... a few things happened. The bread was in my nice wicker boules and covered in plastic wrap and plastic bowl covers. All melted down into the baskets, the bread got partially baked and I tried to salvage it by placing in to the WFO early but... Too hot and no oven spring due to the mistreatment earlier. Burned bottoms and dense as piece of wood.

    Sample photos of a couple of the boules.

    Oh well it is only bread... and the baskets did survive.

    Hmm, could use it as reentry ablative heat shields for orbital insertion...
