Romertopf Clay Baker – Model # 99111 Made in Germany
Note: Romertopf is no longer being manufactured in Mexico. While the German made products are more expensive, the quality is considerably better. We are very happy with this new development.
Baking bread in a covered natural clay baker is undoubtedly one the best ways to get fantastic results at home. Your bread can easily rival some of the best breads available anywhere.
This Romertopf Clay Baker is made from the finest red clay and is a perfect size and shape to accommodate most loaf sizes, from the basic no knead recipe ( ~ 1 1/2 lbs) to loaves twice that size. The inside base of the German made Romertopf is glazed for easy cleaning and non stick benefits, the inside of the lid remains unglazed.
The moist dough cooking inside the clay baker creates the steam needed to produce a delicious bread with a crackly, golden crust and light crumb. Absolutely eliminates the need to spritz your bread, pour water in a hot skillet or any such thing to get the nice crust you are after.
While the Romertopf baker is an excellent choice for bread baking, it is better known for the wide range of other fabulous dishes you can bake in it. This may become one of your most versatile, appreciated and often used kitchen items.

|“My husband bought me the Römertopf clay baker as a gift with all the other goodies like the oval proofing dish, the danish whisk and the awesome bread knife! I wish you could see this bread. I did the no knead recipe and it turned out 100 times better than using a lidless container. Thank you for the great site and keep on keeping on.”
All the best,
