I'm embarrassed to say that I STILL haven't done it.  That Sunday roast dinner was so filling that we didn't want any dessert and I just haven't done it.  

 

Hey, it's a Christmas pudding, you're just early for December 😀

So after 3 hours on Steam Bake at 225, an overnight cool down, and about 20 mins on Conv. Bake at 475 and another 10 on broil, I got a true Chef John "fork don't lie" moment, with ridiculously crisp/crunchy skin and very tender, juicy belly meat. Success!

Did you use the same method as the SE article you linked, with the first cook basically a confit?

Sort of - but the belly was taller than the pan it was in, so it was only somewhat immersed in lard. I feel like I spent more pork fat than I got out of it...very strange, I'd have expected a net surplus.

 

Can't argue with the results though! I wish I had a photo

I use a special Korean water filled baguette pan

Jo, could you say more about your Korean pan? A link?

 

I bought a nice two-baguette pan for the CSO. It was a Bakemaster from Amazon. Too long for the CSO but I trimmed it with a grinder so  it would fit north-south (which is slightly longer in the CSO that east-west). My only minor criticism is that the Bakemaster would have made a better baguette if it was slightly wider. But good heavy gauge and highly recommended for fellow CSOers.

 

Baguette pans are really difficult. Hard to get heavy gauge with just the right proportions.

Sorry, I cannot find any more information on the pan.  It came with instructions, however I've not seen the instructions since about 1995.  I bought the pan from KAF (which is now KAB).

Has anyone found a baking sheet that will fit in the CSO?  I don't much care for the ridged one that came with it and would like to get one with a flat bottom.  I saw a couple on Amazon that should fit but I thought I'd ask here first.  Thanks!

I favor TeamFar baking sheets and pans.  I have many.  One that fits the CSO is (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)

$7.99 in the US.

 

 

Yes, I did see that.  I'm amazed sometimes by the price differences between .ca and .com.  I don't mind accounting for the exchange rate and maybe a small premium if I really, really want it or can't find it here, but that's about it.

Once we can shop openly and browse properly if I were you I would pop into HomeSense with your tape measure. You will be amazed at what you might find. It may take more than one visit. @Kerry Bealand I have found numerous baking pans and such that fit the CSO.

 I do stop in there whenever I'm in that particular shopping mall.  I like looking at the stuff in the kitchen area and usually come out with an item or four.  So yes, I'll keep that in mind.

@ElsieD Also poke around on various sites under different brand names for just "stainless baking sheets" or "stainless baking tray" — these seem to be a generic import from China, and at least on US Amazon, you can find *identical* pans under a dozen brands. I bought some larger pans of a similar style recently for my weird size wall oven, and ended up with "HUSHIDA" instead of "TeamFar." Every detail of the pans appears identical.

 

The selection seems to be less on amazon.ca but there are a few -- e.g., this "Raynag" pan for $18: hopefully eGullet-friendly amazon.ca link
