Many men will at some point slice up a ciabatta, stick a knife in a lump of chèvre, toss some olives in a dish, and think they've reinvented the third date.
But if you really want to make yourself a keeper, you want your special ladyfriend to see that loaf come out of the oven. Your oven.
Thankfully, there’s this piece of cast-iron perfection.
Designed to fit snugly inside most conventional ovens, the Fourneau Bread Oven lets even inexperienced bakers create artisan-quality bread in their own homes.
Simple yet effective, the Fourneau’s walls heat dough evenly and the cast-iron device traps steam inside to give rolls, baguettes or even pizzas a perfect crust every time.
Made in the USA by Strand Design and built to last, the 28-pound Fourneau comes with a peel made from maple for safely removing items from the oven as well as a detailed recipe guide.
Priced at $225, Fourneau orders before New Year’s Eve include free shipping, so we’d suggest going against the grain with a bread-related resolution — whether your oven is working or not.
