Bread baking at the highest level
Every detail of the Challenger
Bread Pan® was designed with the baker in mind.
Absorb. Radiate. Retain. Trapped. Perfectly placed.
Bring on the Heat
The Challenger is made out of
thick, black cast iron because it is proven to absorb, retain, and radiate
heat — just what your dough needs. The cover is shaped like a loaf of bread to
bring radiant heat as close as possible to help your dough’s oven spring and
bloom. It’s a self-contained oven within your oven so that heat is not lost
when you open the oven to take the cover off.
With handles large enough for
oven mitts, you’ll easily load your dough, place and remove the cover, and
safely remove your perfect loaf.
The Perfect Amount of Steam
Steam is what produces bread with crackling crust, rich
colors, open scores, and full volume. The
Challenger is designed to ensure a tight seal between the cover and the base, trapping the
steam your dough needs while baking.
One Pan To Rule Them All
Small combo cookers yield small
boules. Dutch ovens have bakers cutting elaborate parchment slings to lower
dough without burning their hands (or degassing the dough!). Baking stones and
steels require even more elaborate workarounds to create steam. Clay bakers
No more baking workarounds. The
Challenger is designed for you to bake all your favorite breads. It’s easy to
load and score your dough. The sealed cover traps the steam you need. Your
Challenger won’t crack. In fact, it’s made to last for generations.
