I am new and go by the name Nannyjanny. I am exited because i only came across this site by accident. I didnt know such a site existed.
I bought my hal oven about a month ago, and i must say I love cooking meat in it. the meat is always so moist and tender.
but i would love to cook cakes and bread etc in it but havent the first idea of what cookware i should use. I wonder if anyone can answer my question.
best wishes Nannyjanny

we are glad you have found us at last.
You can use any bakeware that you have been using in your "big oven" - if it's the right size of course

I have mine a week or so and am having fun playing with it. I can give you a tip on cakes. I wanted to make a small cake, just one layer for me as I was experimenting with a coconut flour cake recipe. I used a pan for a single layer and it was perfect. Did have to play with the timing of course, but it was definitely shorter time than in a conventional oven.
I did my cake on the lower rack, but when it was quite set, did put it on the higher rack as I wanted it more golden.
I am wondering if for the bundt pans if one must use the ring...hmmm.
Also, I picked up the tip that for deeper cakes, a Bundt pan is better (has the hole in the middle) or any pan with said hole in middle in this way it will bake more evenly as the heat can circulate better.
My single layer cake was fine, but I can imagine those used for deeper cakes (such as typical English style cakes) may be problematic.
I also did small batches of cookies. Really happy with that idea.
