Product Review :: Clay baker

About a month ago I was contacted by these guys to see if I was interested in doing another product review from one of their stores. The first product I reviewed for them was a beauty. You can read more about it here.

Of course I was interested. After searching their many, many stores to see what product I was interested in, I stumbled upon this beauty.

In this simple, organic lifestyle that is happening in our home - one of the things I enjoy the most is baking bread and the no-knead bread is our favorite... so moist, chewy and crusty. I've been baking it for a couple of years now and using my dutch oven pan to bake it in. It turns out perfect every time but I had read about and knew that baking this bread in a clay baker (or any type of bread for that matter) made it even more perfect. Since last year I've been searching stores in the city for one of these babies but never finding one. I went shopping on-line but most of the sites did not ship to Canada. CSN ships to Canada. And speaking of shipping - the process with CSN is such a breeze. As soon as you've finalized your order, they inform you that your product has shipped and the next thing you know (about a week later) you have a parcel on your doorsteps.

Soooooooo, I made no-knead bread this past weekend and look at the yummy-ness. The clay baker baked it more evenly throughout the loaf and it made a bigger loaf of bread.

You need to soak the lid for 30 minutes the first time you use it than 10 minutes every other times. Even though the bottom is glazed, you need to grease it because your bread will stick (believe me, I know).

I still look at this beauty on the shelf and get all excited that I actually own one now. Thanks CSN stores.

I've been using my vintage cast metal enamel Dansk terrine baker for bread but must check these out.
I've heard they are very good!
