Die-cast aluminium pot as a DO?
I don't have a cast-iron DO, but I use a die-cast aluminium roasting pot. Its lid is curved and has spikes inside which are intended to keep roasts moist. I have been using it for baking bread, but I find that the bottom of my loaves almost always ends up burned (at 230º C). Has anyone had any experience with these pots and can give any tips about how to use them, for example at what temperature to bake?
