Mugsies and... - Now, 'dead-flat Bottoms'...
This makes sense...I did not think of that kind of example.
Somehow a 'dead-flat' Bottom does seem intuitively and logistically correct
for something one
will bake food in...and, be slideing into and out-of the Oven and so on...
Hmmmm, now THAT made me hungry !
Thinking about Baked Dinner things...!

I can not think of any functional form for which a 'dead-flat' Bottom is
I am not so sure, I have started to make pie plates and chicken rosters
with a dead-flat bottom and think it works better then a foot on the
bottom. I end up with just a nice curve into the bottom that slides in
the oven very nicely.
We were having a problem with oven ware cracking before we stopped
trimming the bottom and now we do not. I am not sure the foot ring had
anything to do with it or if I am just getting better at making them.
