Create a gorgeous traditional-style loaf that mimics those found in authentic European bakeries with the Sassafras 11-in. La Cloche Brick Oven. The pie-shaped base and tall dome cover recreate the action of a classic brick baking oven right inside your conventional kitchen oven, so you get a light, crisp crust encasing a tender interior. The sturdy unglazed stoneware heats up evenly, and the convenient dome holds in steam and heat to deliver the optimal moisture level for your bread. The top handle lifts easily off the dome at the end of the baking process to allow the crust to brown slightly before you remove it from the oven. Whether you're preparing your grandmother's sourdough recipe or making a rosemary-olive loaf inspired by your latest trip to Italy, this brick oven is sure to bake breads you'll be proud to share. You can even bake multiple loaves in a row without having to take the pan out of the oven by simply sliding out the cooked loaf and add new dough to maximize your efforts. A one-year manufacturer's warranty ensures you'll be able to make plenty of loaves of delicious artisan bread in this brick oven. The dome and the base wipe clean in seconds. Features:
  • Classic stoneware construction creates the ideal conditions for baking bread similar to traditional bakery loaves
  • Sized to accommodate artisan boule loavesProduces optimal humidity levels under the dome for a crisp, light crust
  • Cleaning & Care: Wipe with damp cloth
  • Dimensions: 11 x 6-in.
  • Material: Natural stone (clay)
  • Origin: USA
  • Size/Capacity: 11 x 6-in.
  • Warranty: 1-year

  • Good product, poor packaging

    I purchased the La Cloche specifically for baking bread. After reading the reviews of this product on Amazon.com, I learned that most who ordered the La Cloche received it broken. My assumption was that Amazon was not doing a good job at packaging the product for shipping. This is what prompted me to order from Cooking.com, my hope being I would receive it not only at a slightly lower price but also not broken.

    The La Cloche arrived in a secure box with good packaging but it was broken. I attributed this to the manafacturing packaging and not Cooking.com. I was sent a replacment ASAP which arrived in good condition.

    There are literally 20 + reviews on Amazon of people who ordered this and recived it broken, not once, not twice but many going on three times. Let the manufacturer know they need to change their packaging to avoide irritating thier customers.

    I recommend this product.

  • The top is great, the bottom will break

    I still recommend this, but you have know you're buying it for the top only. The bottom pan will break, so get yourself a separate pizza stone to substitute for the bottom (and then use that for pizza and cookies too). I just use my old pizza stone, which I prefer anyway to that stupid pan 'cuz it's easier to slide the loaf onto it with a baker's peel. I think my old stone might be the Bialetti square, but there's no markings on it to be sure of that anymore. That combined with this bell top has been doing great, cooking a loaf of killer spelt sourdough every week now for more than eight months. I have not tried any other products like this to compare, but haven't seen any others like it out there to try.

    The upper bell on this oven is thick and sturdy. It has even stood up to a quick air-cooling outside the oven rather than letting it cool slowly inside the oven like you're supposed to do. It makes for great rustic breads in a conventional oven because it holds in the moisture, and you don't have to spritz your loaf every 5 minutes or have a professional oven with steam jets.

    My first one arrived with a shattered bottom pan. Cooking.com promptly sent a replacement that had different manufacturer's packaging than the first one, plus they added more padding in the outer box. After three or four uses, however, the bottom pan cracked in the oven anyway. The pan is thinner than the top, and it looks like we've all had this same problem here, so don't count on the bottom lasting for you. If yours arrives with broken bottom but top intact, just save your time and skip asking for a replacement.

    I recommend this product.

  • I love the results I get from baking bread in the La Cloche. I bought one several years ago, but when the base broke after a few uses, I regretfully returned it. The vendor was no longer carrying it, so I couldn't get a replacement. When I decided to check it out again, I noticed from the reviews that others had had a similar problem. I finally managed to find Sassafras online and wrote asking them about this problem. They sent me a replacement base! There I was with the base, but no

  • as alan scott said in his book about baking bread and building ovens the results in using this device are unblievable. it produces a real artisan loaf of bread that cannot be duplicated in anything other than a masonry oven

  • I just baked a sourdough in the La Couche and I am going to like this for bread. I have wanted the crunchy crust and this is doing just that.
    I am so glad I bought it!!
    I lost my husband a year and a half ago and so I do not cook for myself everyday, but I do have company over and that gives me a reason to go all out, because I have always loved to cook...
    Thanks for making a great product!

  • Easy to use and keep clean. The bread crust was wonderfully crisp and the insides stayed moist and luscious.
    The down side is that this thing takes a lot of storage space!

    I recommend this product.

  • The La Cloche makes bread like you would not believe !

    I bake home made sourdough breads and this oven works great.

    The 3 pound round loaf fits well.
    It simulates very well the classical stone/brick oven, used by many European bakeries.

    I recommend this product.
