Baking bread seemed like it became part of everyone’s quarantine schedule at the dawn of the pandemic. Be it focaccia, rye, or the ever-popular sourdough, there are countless types of loaves to bake. That said, though, it’s best to make sure you’re using the right equipment for the ideal result. When it comes to the right kitchen appliance, few brands level up to the high-caliber quality of Le Creuset. With the release of its long-awaited Bread Oven, owners can have their bread and eat it too.
The new product is composed of the French manufacturer’s top-of-the-line, heat-distributing cast iron material. It also features a low-profile base with raised ridges, paving the way for the perfect shade of golden brown and even Le Creuset’s signature three-ring motif. This cast-iron skillet is neighbored by a domed lid that assists in maintaining steam circulation and providing the bakery-adjacent flavor.
As a bonus, a significant difference between anything from Le Creuset and your average, cast iron-composed appliance is that it requires no seasoning, thanks to its matte black satin enameled finish. This signature touch also makes it much easier to clean. Rounded out with ergonomic knobs for an easy lift no matter how puffy the oven mitts are, this is simply as premier a bread oven the market has to offer.
Do yourself a favor by baking your bread the right way. Le Creuset’s Bread Oven is available on its website in a myriad of enameled porcelain colors for $290.
