The cast iron walls heat the dough evenly, and the enclosed cooking space traps the steam from the baking bread — the magic ingredient for creating a golden, crispy crust and getting amazing oven spring.
Since it’s designed to work with the baking tray, you simply slide your loaf into the front of the oven. There is no need to touch or lift anything hot or heavy.
There’s no need to remove it from your oven. Just open and close the hatch using the removable handle to capture or release the baking steam.
It accommodates multiple loaf shapes and sizes, giving you the freedom to bake rolls, baguettes, boules or even pizzas, fougasse, or focaccia.
The Fourneau is made in the USA from cast iron. With care and use, it will just keep getting better over time.
