Using glazed tiles in oven

I have been unable to find unglazed tiles locally. We have left over 12" tiles from our home and thought we could use these. Any reason not to? We will not be cooking right on them. Just using for heat dispersion

Over the years we have tried many different things to disperse heat in our rv ovens. We tried the tiles and pizza stones, all of which eventually cracked. For the past 5 years we have settled on a Lodge cast iron 10.5' griddle. We simply hack sawed the handle off and put in on the bottom oven shelf inverted right over the burner. Has worked wonderfully.

I use a round pizza stone to help with heat regulation, but glazed tiles would work. You could wrap them in aluminum foil to prevent the shards from scattering if they shatter. I think the best thing would be a sheet of 1/4" cold rolled steel plate, cut to fit under the oven rack.

DW uses insulated cookie sheet she found in a cooking specialty store that fit the RV oven.

DW uses what looks like a heavy duty cookie sheet that fits our RV oven. Actually, we don't know what it was used for in its original life. She found it in a thrift shop.

You could use a baking steel instead of a tile or stone. Similar to using a steel griddle with the handles cut off but made for the specific purpose of evening out the ovens heat.

I've tried 12x12 2 times and both cracked , 1 was glazed the other unglazed, so i decided to go with 4 small 6 x 6 unglazed stone and since then all is fine

I am using 4 6 X 6 terracotta colored un-glazed tiles I got at Home Depot. Previously I used a 12 X 12 floor tile but it cracked. They make a huge difference when baking anything in the tiny oven.

We have a standard 12x12 (maybe 14x14?) glazed floor tile in our oven. Only used it once so far, and no cracks. Marginal results, but still better than nothing.

I really like the idea of the baking steel though. Or an old piece of cast iron if you can find it...

I'm new to TTs and haven't tried to use the oven. What is the issue that requires an added heat absorber?
