Fourneau Bread Oven cooks bread at home, saves dough at bakery

Despite the current war on bread, most people eat bread every single day. Unfortunately, this gluten-infested treat is slightly complicated to make. Those with bread makers may take the plunge, but everyone else usually opts to visit the bakery instead.

Now, the Fourneau Bread Oven lets timid bread-lovers make their own. This little metal hatch goes straight into the oven. When preheating is done, stick the loaf into Fourneau and close the door. The Fourneau Bread Oven provides the type of tight steamy space the loaf needs to bake without any hassle. The folks at Fourneau also offer a peel (otherwise known as that giant wooden spatula bakers use) and a book of bread recipes.

There are plenty of DIY methods out there to designed to cook bread at home without a bread machine, but they’re all fairly makeshift. Fourneau is a good option for those looking for an easier alternative. The device appears to only cook baguette-type bread, which may limit its appeal going forward. Still, backers who would like one can donate $195 for delivery in August 2015. Fourneau is hoping to raise $90,000 on Kickstarter by April 7.

Camping Cooking

Compact Delta Toaster lets your bread feel the burn

For those who enjoy camping, RV road trips, yacht cruises or just live in a small space and like having their toast and coffee when they wake up in the morning, here is a nifty gadget that doesn’t require electricity to toast bread on both sides at the same time. Delta Toast is shaped like a triangle that stands bread up while it is placed over a heat source for faster toasting, and less hassle than conventional one-sided camping toasters. It works on both gas and electric stove tops, has a double layered heat shield so that the crusts won’t burn, and will even toast a sandwich.

For those who want to use it in their house or apartment, it is dishwasher safe. Unfortunately, the product is only available to those with addresses in the US and several European countries because of shipping issues. Still, a cute, albeit clunky, product for more simple-minded toast enthusiasts. Backers can get this for $55, with an expected delivery of February 2015. Delta Toast hopes to raise $2,500 on Indiegogo.
