Exploding, staining, breaking ... why not just use good old cast iron? I bought a covered baking dish and two frying pans and that takes care of all my WFO cooking needs from baking to roasting to frying. No cleaning, holds the heat, difficult to break and cheap.

New to forno bravo, my son purchased a primaviera oven for me for father's day. I totally agree with the cast iron approach. My second firing involved a large cast iron pan with roasted potato and rosemary chicken breast. I know! I should have thrown some vegetables in it. Next time. Eventually I will accept the fact they should be part of my diet. Oh well.

I'm in the UK and have found some terracotta dishes. I have used one several times, maybe 10 or more, for casseroles. However, I'm still unsure about how to handle them. At the moment I'm pre-soaking for 30 minutes and them putting the dish in a cold, convention oven (with the stock in the dish for liquid) and warming it up. I then use the wood oven to to fry the other ingredients before combining everything in the terracotta and cooking in the wood oven. Normally at around 250 C or more. The food is excellent, but it seems a bit of an effort to pre-soak and pre-heat. Should I still need to do both?

Continue to soak the cookware but preheating is unnecessary.

I have been looking at buying a chicken brick - glorified terracotta pot! It does say soak in water, then put into cold oven and warm up slowly to 200C.

So I guess you could put the pot into the oven and then set your fire going?
