I'm so bummed out. My oven is broken and because of the pandemic there is an appliance shortage at the stores and I probably won't be getting a new range until spring. I haven't baked sourdough bread or bagels in months. . We have the instant pot omni plus which is basically a toaster oven/air fryer appliance. I've been contemplating making bread in it . The thing is, I find the heat is very strange. It's really intense and cooks things in half the amount of time that's recommended yet the oven thermometer registers as the same temperature as the the unit. It doesn't seem to bake cookies very well. The chocolate chip cookies don't seem to spread enough before they're done (maybe it's my recipe??). Anyway, the banana bread i baked in there has a different crumb on the inside than compared to a regular oven, even though it browns ok on the outside. it seems to me the heat is intense but doesn't penetrate well. I've tried lowering it by about 25 degrees but it still bakes in half the time. As for trying to make sourdough bread, my shallow dutch over fits inside but I'd have to make boules . I prefer batards. Can someone give me some advice on whether I should try making SD in this thing? If I do, should i use a DO or should I just plop the loaf into the oven and throw in some ice cubes? And how about temperature adjustments? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I'm in SD withdrawl now.
