Anova Precision Steam

Has anyone used this oven for baking sourdough or french baguettes? Is the oven able to vent the steam during the baking process?

I have baked baguettes, sourdough rye and a sourdough boule in the APO. I normally vent the steam manually by briefly opening the oven door. In my recent rye loaf, I did not do this and the crust was exactly what I wanted.

The oven has an adjustable vent. When steam is on, the vent is closed to keep steam in. When the steam is off, the vent is open to release steam.

Hi, I have this problem.When Steam Is on the Steam comes out from the Oven (bottom right) but I don’t see Steam into the cavity. Is It possible that adjustable vent is damnaged?Thanks!

That is normal. Steam is invisible :slight_smile: What you are seeing in the bottom right is the vapor when the steam is released. Entirely normal!
