Saltillo tiles affecting oven?
Has anyone experienced problems with their oven using saltillo tiles inside? I have a KitchenAid 36" Dual Fuel Range and after many experiments, I realized that my new tiles won't allow the oven to heat up to maximum temp when placed across my rack with a 1" gap around. I have to place the two tiles at each end of the range with a gap in the middle for the oven to heat up.
It would be fine except that I won't be able to make baguettes or use a closed lid on the tiles (unless I can find one that's 30" wide).
