The Right Way

There is no right or wrong way to bake bread. There are folks who preheat their ovens before baking, and there are folks who bake starting off in a cold oven. You can knock the dough down, once, twice or not at all.
You'll just have to carve your own path, but try to strike out into new territories and accept the challenges. And remember what Emerson said: "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds."
In the oven photo, note the nice space for wood storage, the handy clamp-on light, and of course the shelf for beer.
