New Oven Toy!!!!!

Yup, the Dough Boy got his new round La Cloche clay baker from the UPS driver this afternoon.





After inspecting for any shipping damage, I immediately took its picture to share here. This baker will allow me to make a 50% larger loaf of NYT bread (4-1/2 C (1#8 oz) flour, 18 oz warm water, 2-1/4 t salt and 3/8 t Instant Yeast).

I just baked NYT last night, so this will not see any use until this weekend. I can hardly wait.

I got it at Breadtopia.com, who had he best price at $39.00, when everyone else wants $49.00

Very nice, Joe! I love when the Santa in the brown truck pulls in.

What's all the space afforded by the lid for? Why would a pan be shaped like that instead of more half and half? Your NYT's breads don't rise that high, do they?

I had one of these and got rid of it a couple of years ago because I didn't know what to do with it.
Now that I do, I kick myself.
Lucky you, JoeV.
And I know we'll reap the reward of your posted pics of the heavenly loaves.

It's similar to the one I got at a Thrift Store for $6.49 along with a pasta maker for $6.49...

The baker came with recipes for cooking foods other than bread. I believe bread was an afterthought when these bakers were originally designed. I'll find out this weekend how high it actually rise. Of course, pictures will follow.

I think I'd be as big as a house living in yours Joe.
But smelling from outside would be okay, I suppose.

Not a pretty sight watching me drool spittle all over myself.
Not pretty at all.
