Learning how to bake bread with enough steam in a domestic oven is the first challenge for a home baker when embarking on their bread journey. A Dutch oven, which is a pot made entirely of cast iron allows for enough heat & steam to replicate a commercial bread oven environment & so is the preferred method when making bread at home.

Our bread specific Dutch ovens are perfect for baking bread & gives perfect results every time. 

How it works

During the initial stages of baking, steam is released inside the chamber of a Dutch oven (sealed by a lid), this keeps the dough moist allowing the bread to develop a crispy, shiny crust and attain maximal volume.

Best sourdough kit available.

Out of all the sourdough starter kits I looked at & considered (& there’s a lot out there) I chose Sourdough Mate because of the quality of the ingredients, options & accessories - not 1 but 2 types of wonderful Organic flour from the Kialla Mill, fabulous German wood pulp bannetons. What’s not to love!

Sandy Beckett
First time sourdough

Happy with this product although you could provide some more information for total beginners as I wasted a lot of flour for a start as was confused about feeding it.

Darci Morton

I’m a beginner getting into it, I had already failed 3 starters I’d tried to make at home. I ummed and ahhhd before purchasing this, but now I have it, I’m annoyed I spent 3 weeks wasting time trying to do it on my own.

Karen Tomlin

The kit is a Xmas present but looks great to me will let you know how it goes. I have been conversing bout gluten free kit and you guys have been amazing. Haven't received it yet . It is also another Xmas present 😊

Simone Evans
So easy and fun!

I purchased the Complete Organic Sourdough Starter Kit after looking at a few different ones from other businesses. I found the Sourdough Mate kit to have the exact items I was after for the best price! I’m a busy mum of two very young children and I enjoyed making my first loaf! It was a great success and all of the instructions and videos where easy to understand and follow!
Thanks Sourdough Mate for creating a fantastic product!
