I really liked the way she showed how a properly proofed dough should behave.

Thanks Lechem for posting the video.  Every little detail in the technique helps.....foil on top if top is getting too dark....setting the Dutch oven in a cake pan with air buffer so bottom of the Dutch oven doesn't get too hot....dough texture so when she tilts the baneton the dough comes out....mine sticks to the inside of the banter every time and NEVER comes out like hers does.....I also over proof most of the time, now I won't.

for a combo cooker is when the top comes off and the steaming is done, you just put the top under the bottom and stack it so the bottom is shielded by the top.  I have found that it is easier to just take the lid off and let it bake dry for 5 minutes and then remove the bread from the bottom and finish baking it in the stone.  No burned bottoms either way,
