Simulate Old-World, Artisan style breads with this Romertopf Round Bread Baker using any recipe you desire. The water-saturated clay ensures the optimal amount of air moisture in the oven, while baking. As a result, your bread will be especially crispy.  Romertopf Clay Bread Bakers are universal and do not need to be soaked prior to use, however, you can choose to soak them if you wish as the moisture released from the exterior of the baker will give your bread a crisp crust, without the need to mist the bread or oven walls during baking.

Round bread loaves make a lovely presentation.  Make a "serving bowl"  by hollowing out the center of the your bread to serve dips, soups, stews, or chili. So versatile, this baker can also be used for many dishes such as macaroni and cheese, casseroles, desserts and more. Scrumptious results every time!

  • Before every use, soak the clay baker lid for 15 minutes in water.  If you are short on time, holding the lid under running cold water for about 30 seconds is sufficient for the pores to hold water. 
  • Place ingredients inside base of clay baker
  • Always place your baker in a cold oven.
  • Set the oven temperature after the clay baker has been placed in cold oven to allow the baker to heat up gradually. Most recipes can be prepared at an oven temperature of around 375-500 degrees Fahrenheit.  Generally, lower temperatures (between 375-425 degrees Fahrenheit) are ideal for meals requiring a long cooking time, while higher temperatures (425 and up) are for meals that require a short cooking time.
  • Go relax while your clay baker prepares your meal to perfection! (optional, but highly recommended!)



Do not subject your clay baker to extreme temperature changes such as putting in cold water or on a cold surface (such as marble) straight from the oven. Place the clay baker on a hot pad or wooden cutting board to avoid drastic temperature changes. 

Romertopf Clay Bakers are designed for traditional and convection oven use and are microwave safe as well, however they are not for use on an open flame, stovetop, grill, wood stoves or wood-fired ovens.
