I'm making the no-knead bread and it says to preheat your dutch oven. I only have a stoneware pot but I was wondering if it was possible to preheat it to 450-500 degrees farenheit and still not let the pot crack?
I've read online that you can preheat the pot by placing it in the oven while it is preheating rather than after where it can go into heat shock and crack.
Please let me know asap, my bread is waiting for the oven!
