Steam bread Maker

September 21, 2010 - 10:07am -- belle

Has anyone used a steam bread maker in their oven and if so, what success did you have..would you endorse using one?  Does it really make a difference in the way in which the bread rises, texture, crust, etc.?  I saw this link on line and read some testimonials which seem impressive.

In addition...I am wondering if you have to worry about any damage to your oven and if so, what precautions do I need to take.


Thanks very much...

Updated: 9/15/2010 I want to introduce Edwin's recipe( pipo1000) that is absolutely phenomenal.

 Next time, I want to try dragon trail pattern for my baguette. That is fantastic!
