A Thrifty Find
A while ago, I spotted this clay baker in our local thrift store. I snapped it up for a tiny fraction of the cost of a new one (which by the way is approximately $70 -$80 Canadian). I've heard these Romertopf clay bakers are lovely for roasting and baking and I'm so happy to have it.
This particular one is very old (it's stamped West Germany!) but was unused in new condition, in the original box. Can you imagine?
As evidenced by the sticker below - never has this clay baker seen the oven...
I've made a few loaves of sourdough in it and I really like the oven spring I get from it. I'd like to find out from you if you've used one for baking/cooking and if so, how do you use it? Any tips?
