A little baker's secret to getting that crispy crust is baking bread in a steamy environment and steaming is what the Romertopf excels at! Soaking the ROMERTOPF lid before use creates a moist environment within the clay baker while the bread bakes, eliminating the need to mist oven walls so you get hearth-baked results from your oven. Removing the lid 5-10 minutes before baking is complete browns the crust. ROMERTOPF Clay Bread Bakers #249 and #250 do not come with lids, however by soaking the bread baker for 10 minutes before use, moisture will be released during baking resulting in a crisp crust and outstanding flavor. Along with the traditional ROMERTOPF bread bakers, we've added our recommendations for clay bakers from the main line that include lids and make outstanding bread bakers.
RÖMERTOPF® Clay Bakers originated in Germany in 1967 and have a long-standing history in the gourmet housewares industry for superb cooking results. The superior clay used to craft each ROMERTOPF clay baker is from the Westerwald region of Germany, an area known for its pure, elemental clay which has given ROMERTOPF the leading edge for healthy, all-natural clay pot cooking. Seasoning of the clay bakers is not necessary. Simply soak the unglazed clay lid in tap water for about 15 minutes prior to each use and put the ROMERTOPF in a cold oven. Set the oven temperature and walk away. The ROMERTOPF will not need your attention as it cooks your meal to perfection!
