I usually do this when the pre-heat temp of the oven is higher than the bake temp.  I've not come up with a good way to remind myself to lower the temp.  I may just have the two temps be the same.

That's exactly what I did, preheated the oven at 550F, put the rolls in for max oven spring and forgot to turn the temperature down. Smoke reminded me a little bit to late.

.... and what you're trying to do?

Looks like your oven may be WICKED hotter than the temp shows, but that's just a guess.

Just a handling error on my side or a multitasking issue......

But thanks anyway!

In my case, the problem was that the bread pan was too large for my oven (which meant that air wasn't circulating properly, I think). Switching to a smaller pan helped solve the problem.

I hate seeing hard work and good food going up in smoke.  You have my sympathies.

Thanks Paul and you are right, feeding the starter 3 times, create a preferment with the grains and spelt flour, mix the dough, retard it in the fridge and puff-ff the first batch goes up in smoke, good that I'm getting retrained by end of July.......

I've found if I have an adult beverage and neglect to set the oven timer, I can slip off to slumber until the smoke alarm wakes me, quite rudely.  Knowing ones weakness and confronting it with resolve has been my solution. I let my wife have the timer duty.

In my next performance review I will bring this up and try to delegate this to my wife, not an easy task............

Eric mentioned the key to a no-burn result: use a timer. Oven timers are good but while baking I often leave the kitchen so I use a small electronic timer and keep it in my pocket. There are also timers on a rope, one size fits all. Since I began using a timer I haven't burned another loaf.

I have all this gadgets even a small one I can clip to my pockets, but they are not very helpful if you don't use them............

Smoke is not a reliable tool.

I totally agree with your statement
