I’m just starting to use the oven and getting a feel of how it works.
Although I can’t see the info anywhere I seem to recall that I shouldn’t use a damp cloth to wipe the hearth before putting food on it.
Last night I got the temperature up (not as high as it probably should go, but that’s part of my learning process). I put the embers at the back and scrubbed the hearth well with the brush.
I put some nan bread on the hearth. Although the bread cooked properly the ash on the bread make it unpleasant to eat. The same, I presume, would happen with pizza.
To me the obvious answer would be to dampen a cloth, put it over the brush and wipe the hearth. Is there anything wrong with that? Am I dong something else wrong?
