Metal heat diffuser for oven
I was looking through the treads on using a pizza stone to diffuse the heat in the small RV ovens we use. There were so many comments on how easy they have cracked. Many said they did not care it was cracked as it still worked fine. But I am not a fan of having a bunch of pieces.
The general advice was to heat it up slowly or even leave the door open a bit so the stone can slowly heat up. But many of us find ourselves pressed for time and this seems like something that is easily skipped in our haste.
I was wondering if anyone has simply used a sheet of 1/4" plate steel to place in the oven. My wife likes her Caphalon pans because they are thick and disperse the heat much better than cheap thin pans.
The metal would not crack and would need no special slow warm up process. The plate could remain in the stove during travel as well. Just "set it and forget it".
