I can send you one Frances.

I can get them locally for pretty cheap.

I'd be happy to help you.

I use this one and I've cooked numerous things in it.

Bed Bath & Beyond Product

It's pretty cheap and well made.
I am not sure how much it would cost to ship to you.

But let me know.

Dave

Dave

I would not recommend using a non stick pans in ovens that go over 500 degrees. These coating may get wiggy above those temps and can possibly be unhealthy.

Cast Iron is OK?

The only problem with cast iron is that pizza temperatures will burn off your hard-earned black seasoning on your iron pans. You may not want to bake at pizza temps anyway.

Yep, if you put in a turkey or a roast at pizza temperatures, it's not only the pan that would suffer...

Dave, that is a very nice pan you found there, good size and really low cost! I think I would very much like to take you up on your offer .

... just checked the USPS shipping calculator and it came up with shipping charges of 36 USD, for 6-10 day shipping. Well, I had to guess the weight and all. Seems weird, paying more in shipping than for the pan itself, but hey, its still a lot lower than anything around here. Plus I could tell everyone that I've got a real Texan roesting pan!! How cool is that?

So Dave, if you could look into shiping one out here, that would be reall really great. Thank you ever so much for the offer.

Frances

Cast Iron i ok at 400 range temps, or use any type of roast pans that don't use coating, but are of same material such as cast ron or tamped metals like ones in restaurants.

Frances,
I agree with Marc, Teflon coatings are not really safe past about medium on a stove. I've got the roaster that Dave's got, or one similar. I wouldn't put it in an oven over about 45o degress.


gghvv. mmmjoohu i (is what my 7 moth old daughter has to say. She's sitting mylap helping me type)

My four-year-old son keeps telling to write down that he's a big strong handsome knight... I always refused so far, but since we're on the subject...

We had a really good cook-up yesterday: As suggested, I let the big fire burn for at least an hour before making the pizzas, then I remembered to rake the coals accross the floor and left them for a further hour... and it all worked beautifully. Bread nicely browned on the bottom, delicious roast in the evening. Thank you for the good advice everyone!!

No idea what the temps are this morning, still quite good I'd guess, but I'm waiting for my thermometer before trying any next-day cooking.

However, the wooden doors are definately not such a good idea...

Gosh, this bad weather's a drag! From being frustrated that I can't continue building I've gone to being glad if the weather clears up enough to let me light the bleeding thing...

Last weekend my inlaws came round for Pizza for the first time. Lighting the oven took about 5 mins instead of about an hour as usual (maybe I need a flamethrower after all) and my inlaws were late... so the oven heated up for a total of about three hours
After Pizzas, which turned out great as usual, and waiting for two hours I wanted to bake some bread... but the oven was till at around 360 C!!!

So I left the door off to cool down a bit and put the dough in the fridge. And promptly forgot all about the oven until the evening. Oh well, I thought, I'll just have to bake in the kitchen oven instead. But it turns out the WFO it was still at 240C!! With freezing temps outside!!!

That oven is just so cool. Its amazing.
I've taken to bake virtually all our bread in the oven by now (weather permitting). Here's a pic of about a week's worth of bread. And my thermometer (not such a thrilling picture, but it works)
