How can I measure the humidity in my ovens?
I’m hoping that you all can suggest a practical method for measuring the humidity level in my ovens.
I have two electric ovens, a Wolf and a Bosch. Neither of them appears to retain steam. I have tried the steaming towel method, the cast iron pan / lava rocks method and spritzing. I called Wolf and Bosch and was told by both companies that their ovens are designed to vent “excess steam” even when convection is tuned off.
I don’t seem steam in the ovens nor do I feel a whoosh of steam when I open the oven door. I know that I need to do a lot baking experiments. But I would also find it helpful to really know the facts about the humidity level in my ovens. If my steam generation methods are not effective, at least then I would know to concentrate my efforts in using sealed baking vessels.
Suggestions will be most appreciated. Thank you!
