I picked up at a garage sale, a large aluminum, baking pan and lid with the label "Household Institute" on the bottom. I see it's an oldie but a goodie. Would it be ok to use for the recipes that call for putting the pan in a 450+ degree oven to preheat and then placing the bread in the pan?
I don't have anything else that would work, expect possibly a covered pyrex bowl, and do not want to buy something new for $50+++ dollars. I don't do a lot of bread baking.
