Covering SD Loaf with Turkey Roaster

March 24, 2009 - 12:22pm -- xaipete

I'm getting ready to bake a loaf of SD bread and want to try baking it under a turkey roaster instead of steaming. I understand that I need to remove the roaster after about 15 minutes, but it isn't clear if I need to preheat the roaster on the stone first. Can someone advise me? Thanks, in advance.

Baking in alternative appliances

The circulars are carrying ads for roasters, probably because you might want to use one for your Thanksgiving turkey.  The ad I'm looking at has an eighteen-quart Aroma roaster oven.  I can't see clearly, but it looks like temperature settings go up to 450F.  (The price is $39.99, "Orig. 89.99. Plus bonus electric gravy boat.")  I got to wondering how it would do for baking bread.  Has anyone tried one?

I do have a couple of crock pots.   Any possibility one of these would prove useful?

Just wondering....     Rosalie
