|Good for occasional baking (4/5)||Jan 1, 2012||Bart Snell||Lakeview Or US|
I've been using my 'Bread Dome' for a couple months now and have to say that it's created perfect loaves every single time I've used it. The first time I didn't use any parchment paper and my loaf stuck really bad but since then I've used paper and it's been great everytime.
The only reason I couldn't give it a 5 star rating is because after less than two months of, to be fair, moderately-heavy use (I bake between 4 and 10 loaves daily), a crack has developed in the bottom 'bowl' section and will soon result in the entire bottom section of the baker splitting in two.
I think this is a great item if you plan on using it just occasionally but it didn't seem to hold up under regular and heavier daily use.
|just what i was looking for to make no-knead breads (5/5)||Feb 25, 2013||Garrett Walker||New York NY US|
|i have been making the bittman no-knead bread in enameled cast iron for a couple years now, and suffering from flat loaves. i've now put three loaves of 'artisan bread in 5 minutes a day' through the bread dome, and while i wouldn't say that i've achieved the height in the pics here, it's definitely better. plus, the dome doesn't weigh a ton, it's cheaper and takes up less space. crust and crumb are as good or better than i've ever achieved in cast iron. can't comment on long-term quality yet, but it appears to be well constructed. avoid thermal shock and you should be fine.|
|Works well! (5/5)||Jul 15, 2013||Mary Lynch||Long Island NY US|
|Been making no-knead for 2 years, I can use a lidded dutch oven for baking but don't feel comfortable with it, afraid I'll get burned. So I tended to stick with recipes that held their shape well while rising (allowing me to use a cloche) but a lot of promising recipes were too wet. A neighbor bought the starter kit which included this Bread Dome and I was impressed with it..it holds no-knead bread in a desireable shape during baking...so I bought one. Does a great job and for me, a real problem solver.|
|Love the Dome! (5/5)||Feb 4, 2012||Patti||Midwest IL US|
|Made a dense honey wheat today and thought I'd try out the Dome. It did a great job of baking this loaf. Nice, crispy crust and perfect crumb. Can't go wrong with this tool!|
|Bread Dome by Sassafras (5/5)||Aug 20, 2012||Sarah Hearrell||Abilene TX US|
|Oh my gosh - I love this dome! For health reasons I started making bread to get away from all the presevatives used in store bought loaves. At first I was using the pizza peel for the bread but did not get consistant bread and was unhappy with the results. Once I started using the dome, my breads have been coming out perfect and would rival any artisan loaves seen on the front of bread recipe books. I will never go back to the pizza peel for artisan breads.|
|Love it (5/5)||Jan 21, 2013||Vina Ryan||Nunica MI US|
|I just got into the no knead method and having the bread dome has really helped me perfect my technique. I am using it so often that I haven't even bothered to put it into the cupboard yet.|
