#4. The Spring Oven – Patrick Kendal
“Steam Baking; the way to create bakery quality bread in a regular home oven.”
In the last few years it seems everyone has realised that big brand white bread is dog shite. Artisan bread and home baking is on the rise (get it?). That has less to do with Mary Berry and more with people just realising that making your won bread is just way cheaper and more delicious.
The beauty of bread is in its simplicity and versatility and while bread machines with every bell and whistle imaginable now exist, Patrick Kendal went back to basics when he created The Spring Oven. Featuring a water channel and lid, it maintains the hottest possible temperatures in your shitty home oven while introducing high moisture levels throughout, similar to professional bakery ovens.
