Can I preheat with my Infrared Broiler (Capital Culinarian)

SeaKozJuly 1, 2013

Hi Folks,

I've been playing with making pizzas in my Capital oven and I'm wondering if there's any hard limit on how long I can leave my broiler on. Can I use the broiler to super heat my pizza steel? Is it safe to leave the broiler on for 30 minutes or more?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The question I would ask, is why not just pre-heat the oven the normal way?.

Broilers can be left on for 30 minutes, but they will naturally cycle on and off- at least if the door is closed.

I suppose if the oven is pre-heated and ready to go but your pizza steel is cold and you don't want to wait another 10 minutes you could use the broiler (that would take maybe 6 minutes- and then turn the oven back on-ugg ) or you could heat up the pizza steel on the stovetop and then put it in the pre-heated oven.
