Not ultra light but still pretty light. I like this method better than steam baking. It’s just like a regular oven (or Dutch oven)--you can actually brown the bread and get a firmer texture if desired.

For the “oven” I used large/tall can that had been previously burned cleaned and then “seasoned” with cooking oil like you would for cast iron cookware. I’m sure others have done this and may have tips or improvements to suggest.

It may be possible (?) to make a L/W version using a titanium foil windscreen rolled into a tube with the ends capped off with foil or some other L/W metal.

Most cans today are lined with poison that dissolves into the food when heated. It's called BPA.

'Dook' you may want to re-read my post. The Can is first burned clean in a fire and (after cooling), is seasoned (protective coating of baked-on cooking oil) is applied. This is done before it is ever used as an oven. I doubt any original plastic coating/lining would survive this treatment.

I just found a tin cup I thought about using inside my pot to steam bake with or just convection heat with hot rocks inside
