The Bread Dome by Sassafras
The Bread Dome is inspired by the traditional Dutch oven, but with an updated, contemporary silhouette.
Its size is perfect for a standard 1 ½ pound loaf of artisan bread. Its shape is particularly well suited for the immensely popular No Knead bread baking method since the sides of the Bread Dome prevent the wet dough from spreading out too much, forcing an upward rise and a nice rounded shape.
The natural stoneware replicates the baking environment of a professional brick oven. The domed shape encourages a uniform circulation of hot air which is ideal for producing bread with a light crumb and crackly, evenly browned crust. Stoneware also distributes heat evenly throughout the body to reduce burning and overcooking.
The inside bottom of the Bread Dome is glazed to enable you to roast succulent chicken, meat and vegetable dishes without leaving a taste residue when baking breads. A small hole in the lid allows some steam to escape to ensure a crispier crust.
Stoneware is durable and versatile and a natural way to cook and bake. We hope that you’ll enjoy the Bread Dome for years to come for a variety of your favorite recipes.

One of our very first Bread Dome customers, Leslie Mckinney from Michigan, emailed us with this glowing report...
“Just received my round bread dome this afternoon. I made my first loaf for dinner. I love this thing already! My bread was beautiful. I figured that I would have to have a few mistakes to work out the bugs, but perfection the first time.Thanks.”
Wayne Clifton from Florida was very nice to send this...
"Eric, I received your e-mail showing the gift ideas you had for Christmas. I looked them over and didn't think I really needed anything. I have your Danish dough whisk and 3 Le Creuset dutch ovens which I use for baking my breads. However, you all are so nice and helpful I decided I "needed" the Bread Dome. My wife ordered it for me for Christmas. I used it and I want to tell you it's the BEST! I will use it from now on instead of my Le Creseut. The bread comes out perfectly every time and I don't have to adjust anything. Thanks so much."
