After proofing the bread dough, what's the best way to get the loaf to the peel without it sticking
Wood Oven Bread Question: When we tried to get the loaf from the proofing surface to the peel, the dough sticks to the proofing surface, even with a dusting of cornmeal. The bread dough was ciabatta, so it's a wet dough. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
I've not made ciabatta, but most of my recipes require spraying the proofing surface or bowl with cooking spray or giving a light coating of olive oil. When I do pizza dough, I usually only use cornmeal to slide from the peel into the oven/onto the stone. Perhaps this would work with ciabatta as well?
As a cheating way...you could proof on parchment paper, transfer the parchment paper to your peel and then slide the dough onto the hearth, parchment paper and all...not quite as satisfying, but it will work, although if you have a live fire on your oven you might have ignition issues!

Is it better to bake bread in the oven or in a bread maker?We've been given a bread maker but I'm not sure how it's meant to be better than using the oven. I guess it uses less energy. What do you think?
