Baking No Knead in Dutch Oven: an idea to avoid ruining interior bottom of enamel Dutch Oven

sylvan | Feb 5, 201107:53 PM

I read in a post this man's experience to avoid burning bottom of your loaf...

"I use a stone in the oven at all times. I bought 2 square pizza stones and had one cut at Home Depot (with a water saw that they use to cut ceramic tile) so now I have a stone that covers my entire oven rack (actually 1 whole stone and the cut stone fitted together, the water saw cuts a very straight line). Without a stone you risk burning the bottom of your loaf because your baking pan is taking some heavy duty direct heat from the bottom oven heating element. You really need a stone if you don't have one."

so, when I read this I wondered if peoples' Dutch oven bottom interiors were turning color because they don't have a pizza stone in the oven
