Merry Christmas everyone! I've used this site a lot over the past few years since I started baking and my confidence and skills have improved a lot thanks to the recipes and advice here. I've started my own blog now to put my recipes on and it would be great if you could head over and take a look at 

Thanks for your support and happy holidays! Leon.

Hi I was wondering if anyone has experience using baking stones with convection ovens.  I'm opening a small cafe where breads  will be the focus.  I will also offer some pastries and light lunches.  I want a versatile oven and one that isn't using too much of my limited space but I want to achieve a good crust on the few (less than 100 loafs) of hearth style breads that I will offer daily.  Will these baking stones achieve a desired crust as well as a deck brick oven?  Any feedback would be great.
