Has anyone used the Challenger Bread Pan yet?
The Challenger Bread pan went on sale August 1. I ordered one, but I'm at the cottage and I had it shipped home. Has anyone used it yet?
I never got the Lodge Combo Cooker. My loaves are too big for it, so it seemed counter productive to buy one. Instead, I have a stone and I invert a large, deep bowl over the top of the loaf. I asked my brother to drill a small hole on the side near the bottom of the bowl - the top when its inverted - through which I inject steam from one of those steam cleaner things. He also fashioned a nifty "handle" for me so I could easily lift the dome off the bread. This has worked well for me.
However, I have wonderful results when I use a dutch oven, so I jumped at the Challenger Bread Pan. I'm regretting sending it home, but....
So, if anyone has used it, I'd love to hear about your experience!
