    Add some sand if you want or keep a plate that fits perfectly to the base of the cooker. Keep the tin on top of it. Or keep a small wooden stick and keep it on top.

    If baking tin comes into direct contact of the base of cooker, it can harm ( overbake ) ///

    so what shd we place on the base of cooker ?

    n also shd we remove gasket while baking ?

    My style of baking was a little different though. In a earthen pan, fill sand and heat it as you start preparing. Once the mix is ready, immerse the box into sand (covered) and pour some more heat sand over the top. Le
