Classic French cookware—expertly crafted since 1850.

Description

HAND MADE This unique, spherical pot is shaped perfectly for baking homemade artisan breads, as well as cooking up some extra-crispy potatoes. Made of Burgundy clay, it diffuses heat gently and evenly, delivering perfectly browned crusts with tender interiors. Plus, it’s great for bringing out the delicate flavors of vegetables and keeps food warm on the table. The durable, attractive glaze is resistant to both scratching and chipping and will not hold baked-on food, so cleanup is always easy. Produced one at a time, each piece of Emile Henry cookware is formed and hand-finished by skilled artisans.

I experimenting with sourdough bread but it was hit and miss. I bought an Emile Henry bread pot and now I make 16 loaves a week for friends and family. Perfect every time! Your investment will not be wasted!

I Absolutely LOVE this Product!
I was VERY excited to receive this bread pot, although I was slightly confused when it arrived since it is called a "potato pot." Nonetheless, I have tried 3 bread loaves in it so far and they have all turned out great! Perfectly domed, and perfectly crispy on the outside and soft in the middle!

Although, confession time: I have been using the video recipe shown on the Emile Henry bread cloche page instead because that recipe only calls for 1 to 1.5 hours of proofing compared to the 12-18 hours shown in the video recipe on this page. (Let's be honest -- ain't nobody got time for that.) I give it 5 extra minutes with the top on in the oven and then an extra 10 minutes with the top off in the oven to really get that crispy crust. Since oven temperatures vary, you may have to experiment a bit to find your ideal loaf.

I would highly recommend this product if you are interested in wanting to make fresh bread at home -- there is nothing quite like it!

Added bonus: I'm very excited to try making crispy potatoes in this pot as well! :)
This is my third loaf in this bread pot -- they just keep getting better and better!

Super for no-knead bread
I use a country loaf, no knead bread recipe that requires a pre-heated (475 degree) HOT cast iron pan. I bought this pan because the handles are grippable and both top and bottom can handle high heat. I couldn't be MORE PLEASED with the result; marvelous bread (mine actually looked like the photo.) I had a little trouble breaking in the pot - boiling milk for 15 minutes - so I wrote to EH and got a same-day response about quick and easy clean up. In short I'm delighted with EH and this beautiful pan. Merci mille fois!

great for sourdough
It yields a good loaf, but it will take a while to get used to handling a 400-degree pot with a lid that fits in one direction. I plan to get a pair of padded silicon gloves since potholders are too clumsy. Provides a great crust. Use parchment under your final rise and slip into the vessel with the dough to make removal and cleanup easy. Wet parchment will mold to your rising bowl and provides more steam. I have not used this yet for vegetables. Too hot in summer for oven right now. Emile Henri makes great stuff.

Great for creating a crispy/chewy crust for a loaf of bread
I've been very happy with how my bread comes out. I haven't tried it yet for potatoes or other vegetables.

Emile Henry Bread Pot
The bread pot has become a kitchen essential for me. It is versatile: it's works beautifully in the oven and also on the stovetop for winter squash and potatoes. And it is beautiful.

I wanted to bake artisan bread in a bakeware designed to withstand high oven heat while preheating prior to placing bread dough inside for baking.

Wanted to make the GREATEST artisan bread possible!! Plus I like the color!
Lynnedora C on May 1, 2018
Read about it on-line. I prefer to buy everything cooking from Sur la table (because of your store manager at the Easton store in Columbus, Ohio).

Where is this made?
Florence M on Nov 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The pot is made in France
How is this different from bread cloche?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think the cloche has a broader base. I actually bought both items because I like making Irish soda bread and brown bread and since they're traditionally baked in something like a Dutch oven and are almost like batter breads (no yeast), the cloche (which can't be used on the range) will be perfect for them. The pot, on the other hand, can be used on the range for vegetables and in the oven to make a boule.
CAN YOU MAKE GLUTEN FREE SOURDOUGH BREAD IN THIS & DOES ANYONE HAVE A RECIPE?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not. I recently passed along a GF recipe link to a friend for whom I bought the cloche. Do a search for "gluten-free boule"; the first result should be "Gluten-Free Crusty Boule"--that's the one you want (the reviews are good).
Is it breakable ? I was looking at it for my RV but afraid of it being made of clay
Eleanor S on Feb 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Eleanor,
I've used mine twice so far--once for vegetables and once for bread--and was very happy with the results. But regarding breakability, I think if you were to drop it, for example, that would not be good. I don't have the impression that it will chip or break super easily, though. (Also, you have to be a bit careful not to put the heated pot onto a cool metal surface--that could crack it.) If you want something that is carefree, this may not be the choice for you.
Does this emile henry clayware need to be seasoned before use, and if so, what is reccommended method? There were zero instructions in either box. Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: Not at all! It is ceramic inside so just season your food and enjoy!
How big of a loaf does it make in pounds? It looks small compared to the bread cloche.
Satomi Y on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It would depend upon what ingredients you use--whole grain loaves would weigh more, for ex. I would guess that a loaf made with mostly white (wheat) flour would weigh about a pound. It's not a huge loaf, but it's not tiny, either.
I just bought this to make bread, but the box says "potato pot". Are they the same pot? Mine generally looks like the pictures you have here, but I just wanted to make sure there aren't two different products. Also, the edge of the top/cover (where it sits on the bottom piece) is not red glaze like the rest of both appears unfinished clay (similar to the raised bits of the bottom exterior Is that the way it should be (none of your photos show this edge)? Thanks.
Wade S on Feb 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The unglazed area is part of the way this pot is designed, so that it can stay sealed.
Can it be used as a casserole or just as serving bowls as well?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't think it's optimal for a casserole because of its shape and size. However, I noticed that Sur la Table carries an EH casserole in various sizes and you can do bread in them as well.
Can this be used in a wood-fired pizza oven? The bottom of the oven gets around 600 degrees.
A shopper on Jan 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would say no. I believe the maximum temperature this pot tolerates is 500F. You should check their website to be certain.
