Oblong La Cloche Baker by Sassafras

Produces the same crispy crust and moist crumb as the round La Cloche. I call this the "crust lover's cloche" since a longer loaf has more surface area than a comparable round loaf.

Another big benefit is it will fit inside a standard 30" oven along with the round La Cloche. Two round La Cloches will not fit at the same time.

Now you can get two hearth oven style loaves in the same baking.

"I have been baking breads and yeast pastries for over 50 years. Since moving to the no knead method I have been making a variety of breads the no knead way and using a variety of covered containers from a clay wok to cast-iron. I recently purchased the loaf and boule covered bakers. There is no comparison. These products create a bread that has a perfect crumb and a perfect crust and the taste is sublime."

Elaine Cooper - Breadtopia customer
"I've used the bulk dough/refridgerator method, recipes from 4-5 different no-knead books, the stone, broiler pan, ice cubes, but nothing got the crust to crack when cut like the lecloche. Yesterday, I think I made the pefect loaf - used the Cooks Illustrated recipe with KA white flour and added about 10 minutes to the cooking time. Crust crackly, big holes, chewy texture; hubby got out some cheese and we ate half the loaf for supper - never done that in 30+ years of baking bread. Next I'll try the WW flour, then some seeds..."
