"Very stylish piece of equipment - an asset to any kitchen" star star star star star_border This was smaller and lighter than anticipated, which was welcome, but still sufficient for a large standard loaf. The crust of the loaf I baked looked and tasted terrific - but a lot of the base of the loaf remained stuck to the bottom of the platter. The bread baker's instruction booklet recommended on the first few occasions of baking with it, to put a thick dusting of flour on the platter before placing the loaf on it. Clearly I had not used enough flour. I am uncertain how much is needed and wonder whether oiling it might help? I oiled the dome of the baker and had no problems with that. Ms Diamond - 12 March 2021 support_agent A note from the team Thank you for placing your review. The platter should be well floured - rice flour or semolina works well. Also allowing the bread to cool before removing will help avoid it sticking. I hope this helps but please do let us know how you get on.
