The Mason Cash Innovative Kitchen Terracotta Baking & Proving Stone has unique design features that help prove and bake perfect artisan loaves and pizzas every time.
At 36.5cm long x 33cm wide x 1.5cm high the Baking Stone has a 2 in 1 function as a baking stone and eco friendly proving lid to cover dough in mixing bowls.
Made using traditional terracotta with a grey external glaze and an unglazed interior baking surface. The unglazed interior absorbs liquid, drawing away moisture from bread dough surface and resulting in crispier crusts on loaves or pizzas.
To use as a proving lid, place the unglazed surface down on top of any 29cm or smaller mixing bowl so that it forms a seal over the bowl, allowing dough to prove for the first rising without using single use bowl covers such as cling film.
Mason Cash originated in a pottery operating at Church Gresley in the heart of the English ceramic industry in 1800. The pottery became world renowned for producing kitchen items made from their distinct ‘white and cane’ glazed earthenware. The pottery was run by a series of Master Potters of whom the most colourful was William ‘Bossy’ Mason. During the 1800s the pottery was named after him, and when Tom Cash acquired it in 1901, he renamed it Mason Cash & Co. Although Mason Cash had produced mixing bowls during the 1800s, in 1901 they designed and manufactured the very first iconic Mason Cash Mixing Bowl. The bowl’s design has endured the test of time and has become something of a design classic. In fact, the design has barely altered since then, which is why the brand is still renowned for its innovative, classic kitchenware today.
