Very little beats freshly baked bread. With the help of the bread baking pan, you can bake the most delicious bread at home in your oven yourself! The unique design of the bread baking pan allows steam to build up during baking, allowing the bread to rise well and giving it a nice crispy crust.
But why is this steam so important anyway? In a bakery, as soon as the bread dough goes into the oven, some steam is added. The steam puts a thin layer of water on the dough, delaying the bread’s crust formation. This allows the bread to rise properly during the first part of the baking time. Halfway through the baking time, the steam is gone, the bread has risen well and can then be baked further until it is crisp and golden brown. The bread baking pan mimics this process and gives you the ideal bread baking oven for your home.
The bread baking pan is made of enamelled cast iron. Cast iron retains heat for a long time and ensures good heat transfer to the bread dough. Because the bread baking pan is enamelled, it is water-resistant, rust-proof, easy to clean and the dough is less likely to stick. Traditionally, bread was baked in a cast iron pan, the Dutch Oven, using the pan as an oven. The bread baking pan uses the features and benefits of cast iron, but lets the oven do the work. The sturdy stainless steel lid knob ensures that you can grip the lid of the bread baking pan properly even with oven mitts. With the integrated handles, you can easily move the entire bread baking pan.
To bake bread, use both the base and the lid together in the oven. How do you use the bread baking pan? Place the oven rack low in the oven and place the bread baking pan (both bottom and lid) on the rack. Preheat the oven with the bread baking pan to 240 °C for at least 30 minutes. Use oven gloves to take the lid off the bread baking pan, slide the bread onto the bottom rack and place the lid back on. Lower the oven temperature to 220-230 °C and let the bread bake for about 20 minutes. Using an oven glove, remove the lid and bake the bread for 15-25 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Let the bread cool on a wire rack.

Besides the tastiest bread, you can also use the bread baking pan for pizzas, quiches, savoury pies, flatbreads and much more. In that case, use the bread baking pan without the lid.
