Dear Stephen

 

There are Eastern and Other (or ‘normal’) mitads. The Eastern one is perhaps 40 cm in diameter. You might concentrate on getting the smaller one evenly heated first and then put it on the market. The larger one might take more time or complication in the construction.

 

Regards

Dear Stephen

 

It has to be heated to almost the very edge. The edge of the enjera is thicker and takes the most heat to cook. The clay material to some extent makes the centre less likely to overheat. Spreading the heat around is a challenge from a concentrated source. See Samson's work on this. 

 

Regards 

Crispin 

 

Hi Stephen, you need to have a firechamber/ heat exchanger to be able to heat the ceramic plate on top, the mitad. there are various diameters, but you should aim at something between 55 and 65 cm diameter.  

regards

Christa
