Which size and type of Dutch Oven(s) for my situation....
I have a Miele Electric oven and I measured the tray as 18" across. I purchased two 8.7" (22cm x 8cm) bannetons on eBay and am waiting for them. They didn't say if that was the outside or inside diameter so I'm flying a bit blind there...
So I was hoping to bake at least 2 round 750g dough weight loaves at a time - but I'm not sure how that will go if I try and use the dutch oven method. Doing the loaves one at a time seems too difficult re: proving and also will consume a lot of energy.
So I notice lodge has a 5 quart double dutch oven and a 3.2 quart combo oven.
Firstly would the smaller 3.2 quart one fit a 750g 8.7" diameter loaf?
And are the enamel ones a better choice?
Then I don't think two would fit in my oven anyway which is actually a pretty big oven... Maybe diagonally? I don't know.
Can anyone lend me their thoughts?
