Re-create the delicious results of brick-oven baking with this Emile Henry cloche. Crafted in France, the ceramic baker absorbs and retains heat evenly while redistributing the steam released by the dough as it cooks. This yields an artisanal round loaf with a tender, moist interior, a light crumb and a chewy, evenly browned crust.

  • Crafted of Burgundian clay and finished with a vibrant hand-applied glaze that resists scratching and crazing.
  • Designed for proofing and baking in one vessel.
  • Turns out one round loaf.
  • Can also be used to roast meats, fish and vegetables.

More about Emile Henry

Emile Henry has been crafting artful kitchen ceramics since 1850, when the French company was founded in a small town in Burgundy. Today, it’s still proudly owned and operated by members of the Henry family. The mineral-rich soils of Burgundy are known for creating wines with unique terroir, but they also yield the special local clays used to craft each piece of Emile Henry cookware and bakeware. The high-fired clay withstands extremely high temperatures while distributing and retaining heat gently and evenly. Artisans hand apply the glazes to create vivid color that looks beautiful in the kitchen and at the table.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest, best bread ever! I've never been much of a baker. Mostly I'm a stovetop cook who uses his oven to braise or roast. However I love hot, home made bread and after trying a whole raft of other methods finally got one of these out of desperation. It's a winner. My very first loaf could have come from the artisan bakery of your choice. It's going to see a lot of use. I may even get the baguette baker to go along with it. Are there any drawbacks? Yeah, round loaves are kind of clumsy if you want to make sandwiches. Hey, Emile, how about a sandwich loaf cloche? I'd get on in a heartbeat! Pair this with a KitchenAid Pro stand mixer and go to town.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Raising the bar in bread baking This cloche is a great tool if you bake bread (in round loaves) regularly. I have used if for Artisan bread at 450 degrees and a favorite honey wheat at 350 degrees with excellent success. I did not know it when I bought the product, but it included a matching mixing bowl that is perfect for 3 cup loaves. Packaging was excellent, perhaps the best packaged item I have received in years. My last computer purchase was not that well protected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Bread I had some issues with the delivery of this item, but Williams-Sonoma was able to take care of everything very satisfactorily. Thank you very much. The quality of bread that you get from this cloche rivals any bakery. I've tried baking on a stone with a pan of water in the oven, but could never achieve the results I expected. Crispy exterior and soft chewy interior. I am very pleased with this purchase. The Emile Henry baguette baker is also wonderful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this cloche Normally I try not to get single-use items but this was a gift, and I love it so much. It makes the most beautiful loaves of bread imaginable - just stunningly beautiful with a great crust and crumb. I didn't bake a lot of bread before I got it (to be honest, I debated returning it) but it was such a great gift. The base makes a great extra pizza stone if you need it too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a baker out of me! This cloche seemed like kind of a ridiculous thing - after all, it's not that hard to make bread. But after eyeing it for a while, someone gave it to me as a gift and I absolutely love it. It makes the most beautiful loaves of bread - wonderful crust, great crumb. I use it all the time to make bread. It takes up a lot of room in my tiny condo but it's worth the space - one of my favorite kitchen items.
