Magic
Had tried for years to get a good loaf of San Francisco sourdough with no success. Finally found the secret, (Breadtopia) fresh sourdough starter and this cloche. Have made about 100 loaves almost all of them perfect. Did a blind taste test vs. "Bodin Sourdough" and mine easily won. This cloche will give a great loaf of bread with a great crust.
Fresh out of the oven.

I love it!
I feel like a baker now. I've been baking bread Every day in my beautiful burgundy cloche since I got it. I have given away many loafs and people want the recipe. I love this so much that I ordered the baguette baker and the loaf baker. I am so happy with this purchase and would recommend this to anyone who would love to bake their own bread.

I used to bake bread and got away from it years ago. Now that I will have time to experiment more in the kitchen, I think this Emile Henry Bread Cloche is the ticket to get me motivated. I also love all of the Emile Henry made in France products that I already have and wanted to add this to my collection.

Great reviews, I like that it doesn't have to be preheated and you can let the dough rise in the cloche, it's pretty and I love to bake bread!
Sarah H on Nov 11, 2017
I have this bread cloche and it makes wonderful crusty bread. I am getting one for my girlfriend.

Price was competitive compared to other online vendors. Also Sur La Table always has excellent products.

Makes amazing crust on artisan bread

This was for my Dad. He loved it!
Ami R on Jan 1, 2017
I am a bread maker, and I read the reviews. I think that steam produces an exceptional loaf of bread. I sometimes have thrown ice cubes in the oven!! This is much, much, much easier!! Love the Emile Henry Bread Cloche.
AlwaysChiefCook on Jul 10, 2016
This item surpassed my already high expectations. It performs beautifully and it cleans so easily. My bread is delicious and it looks professionally made!
Sharon H on Jun 16, 2016
I bake bread. This is a nice tool to have on hand. I can make the bread using a mixing bowl but this adds some style to the show.
Robert H on Dec 16, 2015
Ordered based on recommendation of an instructor. Also read reviews on Sur La Table that rate it highly.

love bread the European style, crusty
Romi M on Mar 24, 2015
I bake bread every week, but with my dutch oven I am always in fear of burning my arms on the deep sides of the 475-degree pre-heated sides when placing the bread dough in it. This seems to be a much safer option.

How is this different than the previous EH Bread Cloche that was sold?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Emile Henry products have been completely redesigned with the American consumer in mind. Dishes are deeper with slightly flared sides, handles are larger and easier to grip with oven mitts, and lids have been redesigned to seal 20% better.
How does this differ from the bread pot?
Jen Z on Nov 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A bread cloche has a shallow, flat bottom with a bell top. A bread pot is a pot with a domed lid. You can make equally good bread in either, but a bread pot can only make a bread in a diameter smaller than the bottom pot (since you generally don't want the bread touching the sides--if you look at the picture of the bread pot, you'll note the bread isn't touching the sides), and only in a boule (round) shape.

You can also use the bread pot for making other things (potatoes, casseroles, etc.), whereas the bread cloche is only made for bread.
Is the base to this bread cloche a pizza stone? Could I use it as a pizza stone on my gas BBQ or oven?
Sarah H on Aug 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's similar in shape, but it's not the same as the pizza stone. It's smaller in diameter & has a larger lip on it. It wouldn't yield quite the same results.
How do you tell if you have the old or new EH bread cloche? Asking because I do not know what the "old" model looks like..thanks!
Sarah H on Aug 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sorry but i'm not sure I can answer this. Didn't know this was something to be concerned about. I think the old version had a high gloss finish and the newer ones have a more matte finish. I wanted the high gloss finish just because i preferred how it looked not because I thought there was a difference in quality or performance. I was able to get one with a high gloss finish because Sur La Table had one out on display. If you have to order one I think you will get one with the matte finish. We haven't used ours yet. So all i can tell you is that i think anything from Emile Henry will be a quality product.
do you preheat both the bottom and the lid of the cloche?
A shopper on Oct 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I do preheat both the top and bottom. Be careful to position your bread dough away from the sides or it can stick to the lid!
Anyone who ordered this online, can you please tell me if it ships inside its own box in the mailing box? Or is it just wrapped up inside the Sur La Table box? I'd like to give this is as a gift and would prefer it was in its own box. Thanks!
A shopper on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is in its own box. I even store it in the box. Nice and sturdy box. Keeps the lid in place and the dust off of it. My first bread dome for baking, I love it!
Are there any particular recipes geared to this cloche or can you just use 'regular' recipes like from James Beard or other chefs/bakers? I'm a bit puzzled about the lid.
A shopper on Nov 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Just purchased! The lid is to keep the steam from the loaded dough trapped around the bread instead of dissipating into the oven and out any vents. (Professional bread ovens have steam injection, and so don't need lids, although a lot of restaurants who bake their own bread will often use cast iron bakers.) If you are making boules (round loaves), this cloche will make boules in diameter up to about 10.5-11". (You don't want to have the bread hit the sides of the lid.) If you are making more than single loaves of bread, and want to make batards (oval loaves of bread), a cloche is not usually the most space-wise option--an oval baker is usually better because you can generally get more than one loaf baking at a time--but for someone baking single batards, you can go up to 10.5-11" in length without the bread hitting the lid.

Any recipe firm enough to hold a loaf shape will work in this cloche. I don't usually make particularly high hydration loaves, but if I am going over 60-70% hydration, I will use a long, slow proof in the fridge (usually about 15-16 hours), slashing right before I load the bread. This helps a high hydration loaf hold its shape during loading.

I bake at a higher temp, not least because I love a mahogany crust with a lot of crunch and shatter. Preheat the oven and empty cloche at 500 deg F. Load the bread using a peel and semolina flour or parchment paper and cover tightly with the lid. Bake for 20 min, then uncover and bake at 450 for another 10 minutes. Lower the heat to 400 and continue baking until the inner temperature reaches about 210-220 and when you tap the bottom of the loaf it sounds hollow, with the loaf feeling light for its size. But every baker, oven, and bread will mean you'll need to experiment to find what times and temps work for you. I'm looking forward to experimenting with the EH cloche and expect it to change my times and temps.
