This recipe from Nigella Express book uses a copper tart tatin dish which I don't have. Would I get the same results if I were to use a stoneware pie dish or should I rather consider investing in a proper tart tatin one?

Dear Nigella Team, My mum is thinking about re-doing her kitchen and needs a new oven. She is thinking about built in oven's so she doesn't have to bend down. We've noticed that you use built in ovens on your programs. Could you tell us what make you use and what size? She wants to be able to fit a large turkey in there for Christmas and so far we have encountered problems with various models being too small. Could you help us out?? Many thanks Amy

Yesterday I made the recipe for the Madiera cake. I used your conversion chart for my measurements. I baked it for 1 hour as stated in the directions. THe cake turned out beautifully. The problem was that it was very dry. Please tell me what I may have done wrong. I have a newer oven so I don't think my temp. is off. i would like to make this again to take to a pitch in at work.
