|Impressive Packing and Performance (5/5)||Sep 14, 2013||Norm Breitner||West Boothbay Harbor ME US|
I'd read the packing horror stories from other sites; I was reassured by this site's directly addressing that issue - and ordered the cloche. The manufacturer's boxing was really good - and the Breadtopia packing was REALLY good. So - it arrived in the correct number of pieces.
The baking. I ruined my oven in the past trying to do steam. Broken glass, steamed electronic controls - the whole sad story. After one run with the cloche, I'm happy, the oven's relieved and the bread looks great. Wish I'd known about this 20 years back.
|Best bread I ever made. (5/5)||Dec 19, 2009||Karen Jagielski||Washington DC US|
|I received this yesterday and immediately made one of the bread recipes that came with the product. I never knew I could bake bread in my home oven with a perfect crust and moist inside. I don't know if I can ever bake with regular bread pans again!|
|worked, then cracked (3/5)||Jun 15, 2011||Bill Schell||Warren NJ US|
|Definitely improved the crust of my breads. However, after a year of baking once a week, the bottom developed a crack which steadily lengthened until it was about to crack apart. It was never dropped.|
|Best invention since fire (5/5)||Jan 1, 2010||Nancy Parsons||Philomath OR US|
|The La Cloche has transformed our lives - we now live for the next opportunity to bake bread! Truly a work of genius, the La Cloche is so good it's tempting to say that every bread baker has to have one. Which isn't true, but once you've used it, you'll never look back. I no longer even remember how to bake without it.|
|THANK YOU very much (5/5)||Nov 30, 2009||Larry K||Lincoln NE US|
Eric, I just wanted to drop you a line and say THANK YOU very much. I
received my purchase on Friday. I have only been baking bread earnestly for
about a year and a half now. I have purchased books read articles, hunted
the internet for any info that would help me to make a decent loaf of bread.
I was resigned to using cake pans filled with water at the bottom of my
oven, having to religiously open the oven and spray my loaf, only to find
that I didn't really get the crust I was looking for, and holes, well I had
pretty much given up on being able to produce a decent hole. It got to the
point, that if I got a hole as big as a broken pencil tip that I was doing
great. But then I came across your website, I viewed your FREE let me say
that again (FREE) video and that's when I ordered the clay bakeware.
I want to say that after my first loaf using your no knead recipe and clay bakeware
that I got an amazing loaf of ARTISAN bread. And the holes, they're huge.
Again, thank-you for your online video and products. I will be purchasing
from you again, and I will be glad to let others know of your site.
With all sincerity, Larry K.
|It Works! (5/5)||Oct 31, 2013||Chris Chester||Lebanon TN US|
I have baked 2 loaves...so far..using La Cloche. Great results. No more spritzing..or pouring water in a broiler pan to make steam. This WORKS! So easy...even a caveman...like me...can do it!
Git ya one!
|Update - First Use: Amazing Results!!! (5/5)||Nov 2, 2013||Patti Johnson||Lawrence KS US|
Update to my review from 10/31/2013: I have now used this awesome baker for the first time and the results were GLORIOUS! BEST. LOAF.YET. We had fried ham sandwiches for breakfast this morning using this loaf (which I made last night)! DELICIOUS! I grilled my bread in my cast iron skillet (after I was done frying up the ham) and WOW! So good! Can't wait to make grilled cheese sandwiches!
I just used the baker right out of the box. I did sprinkle a bit of flour in the preheated bottom before I transferred my dough to it. But, I don't think I'll even do that next time. No sticking problems at all (which was a BIG RELIEF!).
VERY HAPPY NOVICE BREAD BAKER am I!
I highly recommend this baker. It's worth the investment! Now, I just have to save some money up for one of those oblong bakers. :)
|Love at first sight! (5/5)||Oct 31, 2013||Patti Johnson||Lawrence Ka US|
I ordered my La Cloche Clay Baker (Round) via Breadtopia during the very early morning hours of 10/30/2013. I just received it today (IN PERFECT CONDITION!), 10/31/2013. It's mighty nice to live so close to Iowa! :)
Quick Question/Verification: I'm assuming that my interpretation and understanding that the use of this baker as strictly a bread baking vessel using ONLY the "preheated" method for use requires absolutely no preliminary seasoning of the baker at all, correct? (Regardless of what the manufacturer instruction/recipe booklet may indicate.)
I will update my review after I've baked my first loaf of bread in this beautiful baker!
I'm just so darned excited that I got it so quickly and in perfect condition (the packaging was excellent)!

|Impressed with packing (5/5)||Jun 15, 2013||Don Martin||Hendersonville NC US|
Received my La Cloche today and have not used it yet but this review is about how it came packed. I have read horror storied about La Cloche bakers coming broken on other sites and forums that sell them, this baker was not only packed by Breadtopia so it in no way could move around in the shipping box but the factory packing was so tight that there was no way this was going to get damaged. Kudos to both the Mfg. and also Breadtopia.
Will bake bread either tomorrow or Monday and write a review about how it bakes.
