Product Description

The Bread Dome by Sassafras

The Bread Dome is inspired by the traditional Dutch oven, but with an updated, contemporary silhouette.


Its size is perfect for a standard 1 ½ pound loaf of artisan bread. Its shape is particularly well suited for the immensely popular No Knead bread baking method since the sides of the BreadDome prevent the wet dough from spreading out too much, forcing an upward rise and a nice rounded shape.

The natural stoneware replicates the baking environment of a professional brick oven. The domed shape encourages a uniform circulation of hot air which is ideal for producing bread with a light crumb and crackly, evenly browned crust. Stoneware also distributes heat evenly throughout the body to reduce burning and overcooking.

The inside bottom of the Bread Dome is glazed to enable you to roast succulent chicken, meat and vegetable dishes without leaving a taste residue when baking breads. A small hole in the lid allows some steam to escape to ensure a crispier crust.

Stoneware is durable and versatile and a natural way to cook and bake. We hope that you’ll enjoy the Bread Dome for years to come for a variety of your favorite recipes.

Inside diameter at rim –  9 1/4″
Inside diameter at base – 6″
Inside height of base – 4″
Total inside height – 7″

One of our very first Bread Dome customers, Leslie Mckinney from Michigan, emailed us with this glowing report…

“Just received my round bread dome this afternoon. I made my first loaf for dinner. I love this thing already! My bread was beautiful. I figured that I would have to have a few mistakes to work out the bugs, but perfection the first time.Thanks.”

Wayne Clifton from Florida was very nice to send this…

“Eric, I received your e-mail showing the gift ideas you had for Christmas. I looked them over and didn’t think I really needed anything. I have your Danish dough whisk and 3 Le Creuset dutch ovens which I use for baking my breads. However, you all are so nice and helpful I decided I “needed” the Bread Dome. My wife ordered it for me for Christmas. I used it and I want to tell you it’s the BEST! I will use it from now on instead of my Le Creseut. The bread comes out perfectly every time and I don’t have to adjust anything. Thanks so much.”

    Love the dome! I made Jim Lahey Carrot bread (which is delicious) on my 3rd attempt using the dome I finally have success!

    Works well! Been making no-knead for 2 years, I can use a lidded dutch oven for baking but don’t feel comfortable with it, afraid I’ll get burned. So I tended to stick with recipes that held their shape well while rising (allowing me to use a cloche) but a lot of promising recipes were too wet. A neighbor bought the starter kit which included this Bread Dome and I was impressed with holds no-knead bread in a desireable shape during baking…so I bought one. Does a great job and for me, a real problem solver.

    just what i was looking for to make no-knead breads – i have been making the bittman no-knead bread in enameled cast iron for a couple years now, and suffering from flat loaves. i’ve now put three loaves of ‘artisan bread in 5 minutes a day’ through the bread dome, and while i wouldn’t say that i’ve achieved the height in the pics here, it’s definitely better. plus, the dome doesn’t weigh a ton, it’s cheaper and takes up less space. crust and crumb are as good or better than i’ve ever achieved in cast iron. can’t comment on long-term quality yet, but it appears to be well constructed. avoid thermal shock and you should be fine.

    Love it – I just got into the no knead method and having the bread dome has really helped me perfect my technique. I am using it so often that I haven’t even bothered to put it into the cupboard yet.

    Oh my gosh – I love this dome! For health reasons I started making bread to get away from all the presevatives used in store bought loaves. At first I was using the pizza peel for the bread but did not get consistant bread and was unhappy with the results. Once I started using the dome, my breads have been coming out perfect and would rival any artisan loaves seen on the front of bread recipe books. I will never go back to the pizza peel for artisan breads.

    Love the Dome! Made a dense honey wheat today and thought I’d try out the Dome. It did a great job of baking this loaf. Nice, crispy crust and perfect crumb. Can’t go wrong with this tool!

    Good for occasional baking – I’ve been using my ‘Bread Dome’ for a couple months now and have to say that it’s created perfect loaves every single time I’ve used it. The first time I didn’t use any parchment paper and my loaf stuck really bad but since then I’ve used paper and it’s been great everytime.
    The only reason I couldn’t give it a 5 star rating is because after less than two months of, to be fair, moderately-heavy use (I bake between 4 and 10 loaves daily), a crack has developed in the bottom ‘bowl’ section and will soon result in the entire bottom section of the baker splitting in two.
    I think this is a great item if you plan on using it just occasionally but it didn’t seem to hold up under regular and heavier daily use.
