I loved the concept of this ceramic bread maker and have tried repeatedly to make it work for me. I have followed the advice of putting a layer of semolina in the base to prevent bread from sticking. Following the advice of another user, I have also tried lining the edge with baking parchment. Every time the bread has either stuck around the edge of the dish or the baking parchment has become incorporated into the dough. So the look of the final product has been messy and the bread maker very difficult to clean. I have to say that the bread has still tasted great.
A note from the team
Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry you're having difficulties with the bread baker.We've spoken to our buyers and they've given us the following advice for using the ceramic bread baker: Place baker in a cold oven to pre-heat for around 20mins to 230c. You can flour the bread baker before use but it shouldn't be oiled. The dough can be left to prove on a flat surface and then transfer into the baker after the second prove, place in the oven. Please let the bread baker cool completely before removing your finished bread.
