For artisan bread - braising pan vs dutch oven

I have a braising pan, stainless steel with glass lid. I was wondering if I could bake artisan bread in that. It is only a 5 qt pan. I would like to get a dutch oven , mainly for bread, just waiting for $$

That's what I use. The only alteration I had to make was to remove the plastic (?) knob from the lid and replace it with a metal one. My pan is Magnalite with a glass lid. Makes N.Y. Times bread perfectly.

I don't know what mine is, I bought at Wegmans long time ago. It has no marking or labels on it.

Magnalite is aluminum and transmits heat very well. Stainless steel does not and the results could be uneven. Worth a try.

do you have a crock pot with a removable insert? I use the ceramic insert from my 6 quart crock pot that has a glass lid with a metal knob. This set up works great.

Question Dough

Can you give me the recipe for the dough? We have the little le creuset dutch oven, I believe it's a 3-1/2 qt. Is this the size you'd be looking at?

Smile Pick Another Pan

Thanks, I think I have a pan closer to what is shown in the pictures. I really love artisan breads.
