I totally forgot about my bread proofing cycle!! I love that, although I’m not sure it’s DRASTICALLY better than a regular oven with the light on. Plus the convection fan comes on from time to time while it’s set to proof and sometimes blows the plastic cover off the rising loaves.
After the range was delivered, I was bound-and-determined to use as many features as I could in the first 24 hours I baked bread, roasted a chicken, made stew… I had a blast
Only thing I haven’t used (much) to date is the bridge burner. I need to find a griddle with a flat bottom (not reversible). I think Calphalon has one. Oh yeah… the one casualty of the new range was my Lodge cast-iron pan. It has a slight ridge around the bottom edge, so it doesn’t rest against the glass cooktop like it needs to.
