Pottery Clay Bread Pan


Summer Hollow Pottery’s Pottery Clay Bread Pan are made of the finest terracotta clay available and are ideal for baking breads. Baking bread in an unglazed clay cooker results in a crisp, shiny crust you may have only thought possible in a baker’s brick oven. The terracotta clay is the closest thing to the brick oven which has always been prized for the crisp crust and the moist inside it produces. Brick Oven Results from Your Oven!

Care and storage of your clay bread pan:

  • Butter your pan before each use; a nice patina will develop over time.
  • Don’t soak your pan in water before use;
  • Protect your pan from extreme temperatures. Never put it in the freezer; don’t transfer the pan from refrigerator to a hot oven, or vice versa; and let the pan cool before washing.
  • Your pan is suitable for oven temperatures up to 450° F; putting your room-temperature pan into a preheated oven is fine.
  • Don’t use your pan under a broiler, or on the stove top.
  • Finally, protect your kitchen table and counter from scratches; it’s recommended you set your stoneware pan on a trivet when it’s not in the oven.

How to Clean a Clay Bread Pan

Do not wash a ceramic bread pan with soap or detergent because the porous clay will absorb the soap. Instead wash with warm water, using a brush and baking soda to help remove any baked-on crust. Do not put in a dishwasher, most machines’ high temperatures and harsh detergents could damage a clay pot. Over time and with frequent use, your clay bread pan will darken, retaining scorch marks and stains but developing an appealing patina. Keep in mind pottery is fragile and can break if banged around or dropped on a hard surface. It’s not recommended that this pan, when hot, be placed on a cold or wet surface.
