Problem with preheating Artisan Bread loaf pan
My husband has COPD/Emphysema/Asthma and cooking at high heat (450) such as I do when I make Artisan Bread is now affecting his progressively worsening condition.
I have been preheating the glass loaf pan for 1/2 hour at 450 before putting the dough in. I can't smell a thing but his lungs are so reactive that he can't tolerate the heating of the pan (even after I do the self-cleaning oven and wipe down the night before) nor the baking at that temp. I don't know how to solve the problem. In the good weather I open windows and turn on the exhaust fan but it is now in the 30s.
Would parchment liners help? Would baking in disposable pans help? I'm assuming the bread is only successful when the pan is heated for 1/2 hour so am thinking that the thinner material of disposables would make the bread fail. Help. Thanks.
