Bread Cloche


The Durand Handmade Bread Cloche's have been specially designed to provide the same traditional finish of baking in a brick oven.

How Does It Work?

Heat: The ceramic absorbs a high amount of heat that is distributed evenly to provide a crisp exterior finish to the loaf. This amount of heat cannot normally be acheived when baking in a conventional oven, however the high-fired ceramic is capable of trapping this heat to replicate the environment of a traditional brick oven.

Moisture: The lid of the cloche traps the moisture inside that is evaporated from the dough. This moisture ensures the loaf to stay moist whilst baking, creating a light and airy texture on the inside and crisp finish on the outside. 

Clean: The ceramic is finished wth non-toxic and lead free glazes to provide a convenient non stick finish that is easy to clean and will not stain. 

Multiuse: The shape of our cloche's allow them to be used for multiple purposes, including proofing the dough, baked casseroles, vegetables etc and also for serving and storing foods.
