Chicken Dinner tonight.  Tyson's finest.

I don't think the FB has a Steam/Bake function.  Or at least I didn't find it.

I used H Steam at 430° F for 25 minutes.  All pieces were a minimum of 175° at that time.

Skins were not crisp.  Meat was juicy and just as good as in the CSO.

I don't own this, but looking at user manual, H Steam would have to be a steam/bake function otherwise the temperature would never get above 212F or thereabouts (note the steam function has this temp limit).  Now personally, I like crispy skin on my chicken so I would have used Combi mode which is all the elements plus steam plus convection.  That said, I get juicy chicken with crispy skin in my BSOA without steam.  If I didn't already own a BSOA, I might consider this baby.

You are right.  I somehow missed Combi.  Just checked and it will go to the correct temp.  I'll update once we have thighs again.

Love me some crisp skin!

I'm happy with the breville smart oven air.

im not familiar w the terminology of the FBCO

 

but in the CSO  I get super crispy CkThigh Skin , nicely browned

 

and much better over all that baking in a non-steam oven

 

there were little bubbles on the CkTh skin ,   like a very tasty crispy Ckskin cracker.

 

its outstanding in a CSO

 

P.S.:   I looked at your time and temp

 

try steam bake  350 - 375  for longer :  45 min ?

 

keeping an eye on the CkTh's

Not sure how soon I’ll be baking bread, but I broke out a loaf pan to check fit.

Chicago Metallic 1 Lb loaf pan.

Thanks. FWIW, I have a microwave oven about the same size as the F. Blümlein. Looks like the F. Blümlein can do everything the microwave is currently being used to do except make water for tea.

The others are teasing, but I hear you loud and clear 🖖

Yes, with a Dutch Oven (but I will admit it's hard to find a reasonably priced one that fits - height with the lid is the issue - but this one does) :

I have a Le Creuset #28 dutch oven.  It is @ 7 Quarts.  Just checked, and it fits.

I've used it for Jim Lahey's no knead bread in my regular oven.

Might be time to try it in the FB.

Check out the fermentation settings they should work

 

Thank you Kerry.  I can go down to 95° there.  What would I do without the rest of you helping me learn this?

Am I seeing it correctly that there is only a top heating element, but no bottom element?

 

From the FAQ:

Are the heating elements exposed or covered?

The upper heating elements are exposed, the lower one is covered to provide a best taste of your foods.
