New Castle, DE, April 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This specially engineered, covered baker from Emile Henry creates bakery-worthy, artisan loaves of bread with crisp, golden crusts and chewy, airy interiors. The magic offered by this new bread baking dish is in how it captures humidity. This pan creates the ideal environment for baking bread dough, transforming regular ovens into bread ovens.  The new Long Covered Baker is all a home baker needs to make artisan bread at home. Cooks no longer need to add steam to a hot oven to get a good crust because the domed lid and ceramic walls trap the humidity released from the baking dough resulting in the crackling exterior on the bread. The baker makes the baking homemade bread much more successful and safer. This new baker retails for $130.


The long ceramic baker, nearly 14-inches, is designed with handles to make it easy to remove the baker from the oven and to flip the baker over to release a loaf of bread. Ridges on the inside base or bottom of the baker help to prevent dough from sticking to the baker. An ample dusting of flour before adding the dough is all that is needed for easy release of the bread.


Made from Burgundy clay, each baker provides even, gentle heating and features vent holes that allow excess moisture to escape. Produced one at a time, each piece of Emile Henry bakeware is formed and hand-finished by skilled artisans.  On the bread baker, the base is designed so it fits neatly inside the lid for compact storage. 

The bread baker, like all Emile Henry products, is made from Burgundy clay. Burgundy clay provides gentle, even heat to coax out the natural flavors of food. With unmatched even heating capabilities, Burgundy clay is safe for broiler and microwave use and is oven safe to 500°F. Emile Henry bakeware is also highly resistant to thermal shock and can be moved from the refrigerator or freezer and placed in a hot oven.


Specialists in culinary ceramic for more than 168 years, Emile Henry creates accessories stamped by its unique savoir-faire.  Inspired by its history and desires, the family-run company continues to use its passion for authentic, homemade cooking prepared with love and shared with pleasure.  Like all Emile Henry products, the baker is made of all natural materials and is backed by a ten-year warranty, which is not offered by any other ceramic manufacturers.  Carefully shaped, each piece is signed by the artisan who makes it. The bakeware is then meticulously checked by the person who packs it, adding a label with their name for traceability and as a guarantee of quality. Emile Henry is located in the Burgundy town of Marcigny, France. To find out more about Emile Henry, call 302-326-4800 or visit Emile Henry USA at
