Yes. The cooking vessels and their lids are in the oven when you start to preheat your oven. The concept here is that a hot pot will initiate the steam effect you find in commercial steam fed ovens.

Yes, the cooking vessel should get preheated with this process, whether it's a cast iron dutch oven or a clay baker.

Interesting idea, Joe. I'll have to try it with my Romertopf.

I have heard of people getting good results out of a Romertopf. The difference from the normal Romertopf process:
  1. Don't presoak
  2. Preheat it with the oven while it's empty, then transfer the dough to the hot Romertopf.
Basically it's the process as Joe explained so well. Just different from how you would usually use the Romertopf.

LMAO. The NYT would never admit that an unworthy commoner could come up with a good idea. It's not in them to admit that anyone is as smart or smarter than they are. I think you understand what I mean.'
