Your favorite bread can be even better
I love bread and was really excited to have the Emile Henry Bread Cloche. The unit met all expectations and promises.

Initial impressions: Upon unpacking the I was immediately impressed by the finish on the unit. The exterior of the cover and the upper surface of the plate has an extremely smooth semi-gloss finish on it. Mine is a beautiful black and I'm sure the red is equally attractive. The finish feels like a quality finish. It is smooth but not slippery.

First use: I chose to use a recipe I was familiar with instead of one of the nice selection of recipes that came with the cloche. The recipe was intended to make two loaves so I baked one in the cloche and one in the open oven per the directions.

I shared both loaves with our dinner guests and asked their opinion on the differences telling them only that I used two different baking methods. The loaf from the cloche won hands down. My guests felt the loaf had a more pleasing crust, a nicer texture, and better flavor.

Clean up was easy though I do have questions for the manufacture regarding care of the unit. The inside of the cover is not sealed and I wonder about getting it wet or getting soap on it.

The plate is grooved and I found, per the instructions that came with the cloche, that a light coating of flour was sufficient to eliminate sticking. I was able to wipe off the bulk of the flour with a dry paper towel and removed the remainder with a damp rag.

With a 10 year manufacturers warranty I can look forward to may years of amazing bread. The homemade bread I used to make and love just got way better

Awesome cloche!
C'est tres chic to have this bread cloche. Ordered the black one and used it to make my sourdough and rustic rye, spelt and wheat bread.

The dome is larger than I expected - however this dome seals the moisture inside the bread. So... I have a yum yum crispy rustic outside and a moist texture inside.

After using it for a week - I realized that I have to adjust my oven temp + lower the temp by 25 degree to make the bread come out in perfection

Love my cloche
I already owned a superstone cloche and a superstone long baker so I am no stranger to the beauty of these bakers. Neither of the ones I have even begin to hold a candle to the beauty of the Emile Henry Cloche. The better part is that it performs perfectly!! My breads have been coming out with thick crusts, beautifully risen and golden tawny brown... just yummy!

My only regret is that somehow I lost the recipe book that had a wonderful maple/whole wheat/oatmeal bread. I want to make that one again. Hopefully I can find it or get it somehow!

BUY THIS... you will love it
