Product Description

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.

  • Holds 3.1 Quarts (Serves 2-4 people)
  • Foods cook in own juices; additional fats, oils or liquids are usually unnecessary
  • Vitamins and minerals are retained
  • Nothing can burn and oven stays clean
  • Natural flavors are intensified
  • One of the best options for bread baking too

Outside dimensions (for determining fit in oven): 13.75″ long x 9″ wide x 6.75″ high
Approximate inside baking area: 11″ long x 7.5″ wide x 6″ high
One year limited warranty – warranty limited to manufacturing defects

“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,
Maria Peterson

    the Romertopf i had that was made in the 60s was well finished and the top was an excellent fit and sealed well, characteristics not true of the new one i recently bought. my complaint is with the quality of manufacture; maybe it is good that they are being taken out of production (in Mexico?). that said, i expect the new Romertopf will still be an excellent baker, tho i have not used it yet. thus a 5 star rating rather than a 2 or 3 for quality of manufacture. i continue to recommend it for baking bread as well as other foods.

    Great Baker – I just used my Romertopf Clay Baker on some Spelt Bread.
    Very pleased with the results.
    And it was a surprise to find out that I did not have to pre-soak the baker in water to bake the bread.
    Thanks again for all the good products that you carry.

    If you bake bread at home, you NEED one of these. Period.

    One of the main things that puts the Romertopf ahead of others is it’s ability to ‘breathe’. The porous, non-glazed clay allows the ‘breathing’ (steaming) process to occur, a crucial component in establishing a strong, hard and crispy crust.

    Of all the clay bakers I have (5 now), my Romertopf’s are used the most (I even ended up buying 2 of them.)

    Like I said before, if you bake at home, you NEED this. [Well, you definitely want it anyway… 😉 ]

    WOW! Absolutely perfect bread – every time! Crisp and crunchy crusts with deliciously soft dough inside!

    I live in the high-desert where bread baking can sometimes be a challenge (due to the elevation and dry arid climate.) With the Romertopf this is no longer a problem. Perfect bread every time!
    Thank you Breadtopia!

    Right now it’s the only vessel I use to bake bread in. I wish there were a round version.

    Totally Amazing!!! I can’t say enough good things about my Romertopf! I am making the best bread I’ve ever eaten thanks to the videos on Breadtopia, the sourdough starter I ordered and my Romertopf! It is the most fun I have ever had baking and I get excited every time I start another loaf. They come out perfect every time (measuring the internal temperature is so awesome – perfect)!! I feel like I had the luxury of spending time with a master bread baker due to the videos. Thank you so much Breadtopia for carrying such incredible products and making all the videos.

    Wow…just…Wow!! While the high heats were intimidating to me, after getting over my fears (thanks to those amazing gloves) I baked my first loaves of bread in this. What a hit! Easy to use, just be careful moving it about as I imagine it could chip or break fairly easy. I’m a klutz so will keep fingers crossed. Thanks Eric!

    this makes perfect bread. The oval shape is just what i wanted. it made for a perfect crust and that alone is worth it. i had been getting very thick bottom crusts in a dutch oven, but this is just the best. and you can cook other things too.

    Great Buy – This clay baker is the best buy for no knead bread. It has brought joy to my baking..

    the absolute best – i am so thrilled with the results i am getting, it is so much fun to see how each one turns out. when i am about to put the bread in the oven i place it first on top of parchment paper (about 2 feet long) shape it, score it, brush it lightly with olive oil, top off with seeds and goodies and pick the loaf up gently cradling it into the baker … easier in and easier out … now i want all the bakers

    it’s fun – this is a fantastic way to bake bread … just love it … it is such a treat to use … each time i take off the lid its fun to see how the loaf turns out … each time its a little bit different … and the bread is delicious … only regret is that i didn’t discover this earlier

    Great Product – Just wanted to let you know I recently bought the Romertopf 111 from you and began baking recipes from ‘My Bread’ by Jim Lahey (Sullivan Streeet Bakery, NY City) – made ciabatta equal to anything I ever had when working in Italy – absolutely incredible.
