Did steam break my oven??
I'm sitting here without an oven! It went down with my last batch of ciabatta. It won't go above 350 degrees F and the preheat light (an indicator) stays on instead of shutting off. Like most of you, I toss a cup or more of hot water into a cast iron skillet on the bottom of the oven when I put my loaves on the preheated stone -- lots of steam. Do you think this could have killed the sensors in my oven? Any of you had a similar experience?
and, now, a working oven!
