LoafNest Artisan Bread Making Kit

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2018-02-22

Conveniently make your own bread without kneading, shaping, mess or clean up with the LoafNest Artisan Bread Making Kit. Plus it only requires less than five minutes of handy work. Using a patent-pending combination of innovative easy peel liner technology and classic cast iron, LoaftNest brings bread making to everyday life. Loaftnest also allows you to use healthy ingredients without additives or preservatives. Additionally, both beginners and experienced bakers alike can use LoafNest. The cast iron heavy casserole stores and releases heat quickly, resulting in oven spring. Likewise, the non-stick liner seals the moisture in, producing a soft crumb and crunchy crust. To use LoafNest, just mix the ingredients using a fork and allow the dough to rise for 18 hours. Afterwards, pre-heat the oven, place the liner in the hot casserole and pour the mixture in. Lastly, let the LoaftNest bake for 45 minutes. Finally, you can make limitless creative modifications to recipes by using different ingredients.

Why you decided to omit some contries from the availability list in your new campaign is beyond me. Anyway it means you wont get my support

Review from Kickstarter
Best of luck on your re-launch, LoafNest!! I will once again be a backer. This is such a great idea; I love no knead bread, but it's so hard to handle and using my big cast iron Dutch oven = large, flattened loaves. I love the shape of your pan, and the liner is brilliant!! Cannot wait for your next campaign. Best wishes!

I going to assume you have a patent on the LoafNest.
If this KS doesn't follow through are you going to relaunch?
Have you tried partnering with other enameled cast iron brands like Le Creuset, Lodge, or Staub?

Dear Cindy,
We really hope that your hope comes true ;)
Basic recipe comes with the product -- that you see under "recipe for success" in campaign listing. And, the community recipes would be on the website. With active community members who would like to put LoafNest to test with their ideas, this section would be continuously updated. We designed LoafNest for one purpose. For baking the bread. Our focus was only on baking the excellent bread. But then you see, Loopy's Nordic Nut Bread is not a bread at all, it is a something like a cake. And, it comes out well and nice as well. So, when the community puts LoafNest to test with their visions and creative ideas, we will know what we don't know! And, recipes will then be located here: http://trfl.nl/LoafNest-Community-Recipes Thanks!

Dear Loopy,
You are spot on! Capturing steam better is a core part of LoafNest innovation. In addition to that the thickness of the casserole is designed to provide high thermal mass and that's how every single time we have an excellent oven spring.
Thank you!

Review from Kickstarter
I really hope that this project gets funded! I'm excited to use this. Where are the recipes located? Or, are you testing them out and will make them available when the project is funded?

Review from Kickstarter
The review posted in the update #4 tested the very idea that I had. Just take two loaf pans and place one upside down. It just shows that the LoafNest design is designed for this type of baking that puts it above a kitchen hack. Am I correct to think that the design of the two halves and the silicon create a seal that traps air in the LoafNest?
I think size is another advantage over say a Dutch oven. Times I don’t need such a large loaf.

Dear Frances,
Thank you for asking really good questions. Indeed, the backers deserve to know more about the future of LoafNest. Parallel to Kickstarter fulfillment, we are working on making LoafNest available in retail. Selling it on Amazon is planned so for. So, when you need your next liner they would be available in retail. After LoafNest we have a few more products/accessories lined up based on the same concept. We intend to have Baguette and Ciabatta versions soon. Half and double size loaves as you indicated also sound like a great idea! To provide most value to our KS backers, all these versions will be compatible with the current LoafNest top lid. Over coming period, assuming we have sufficient volumes, we will also produce LoafNest in additional colors. We made LoafNest to solve our own problem of making the best bread with minimum effort. We have brought down the preparation time to below 5 minutes. We won't stop there. You know that there still are two bottle necks in the whole process, pre-heating time and the cooking time itself. We have ideas to reduce the pre-heating time to make the whole process even more human friendly! That would be the next major project. Our campaign goal is the minimum amount we need to get started and fulfill Kickstarter orders. So we will be cost neutral after fulfilling Kickstarter backers. But we will be left with partial inventory that would go on retail channels and fund our future projects. This should also allow us access to more funding outside of Kickstarter. Thank you!

Review from Kickstarter
It would be really helpful if the campaign listing could include some discussion of how you hope to leverage the initial Kickstarter effort into long-term manufacturing and sales. This is really important for initial backers. The start of a community of recipes is a good sign, but if the company doesn't endure, the community will never be large enough to truly thrive, and additional supplies will not be available a couple of years down the road when silicone liners need replacement. (Ordering more in advance is a very helpful starting point, but not a sustainable plan.) Alternatively, if things go well and the LoafNest and its supplies are eventually available for retail purchase, then we might hope for expanded options in the long term. A smaller pan suitable for standard LoafNest recipes divided by half would be of great interest (to me, at least). Color variations would be of interest to people who like to color-coordinate their kitchens. For these reasons, some information on your business plan would be reassuring. Thanks!

Thanks for the suggested recipes.

Review from Kickstarter
@ Cindy Layne, The inner size of the LoafNest is 23cm (~9 inch) long, 14.5cm (~6 inch) wide and 13.5cm (~5.5 inch) tall.
The actual loaf will have same length and width and height around between 4-5.5 inches depending on the recipe. Thanks for asking about the size of the loaf. We will also add this information to the FAQ. We slice the bread with a common bread knife. This requires some practice to get uniform slices but that is also the part of the 'hand made' feeling. You can see a sliced loaf on our gallery at http://trfl.nl/loafnest-gallery that is sliced with a normal bread knife.
If you prefer a more skill-free solution for slicing, you can try a bow knife to get uniform slices or use a electric bread knife.

Cindy: I use a bow knife to cut my bread. Just Google or Amazon bow bread knife.

So you guys have a recipe for a cinnamon nut bread? Or banana bread?

Review from Kickstarter
This may have been answered, but I didn't see the information....what is the size of the actual loaf? Also, how would you recommend I slice the loaf to use for sandwiches? Do you know of a kitchen tool that would help with this? If you don't....maybe, you could create one! 😁

Repost from the update comments:
Growing up my family always had a loaf of rye bread in the house.
I moved to where there were no eastern European bakeries.
I found this recipe for rye bread.
http://allrecipes.com/recipe/230396/real-ny-jewish-rye-bread/
The trick is to use pickle or sauerkraut juice to give the bread it's bite.
Some more searching I did find a no knead version that uses beer rather than pickle juice.

@Diana B, Yes, we have baked sourdough (with a few variations) with LoafNest in past. We will share a sourdough recipe in near future. We currently do not have a ready sourdough culture in our fridge so it may be a while for us to build one and make a loaf again. All our past sourdough attempts worked well (or better) than the traditional counterparts. LoafNest really does bring the best out of a recipe.

Review from Kickstarter
@loopy,
Thanks for the Garlic Roaster suggestion. We will keep it as an option. We would prefer recipe nominations on the main post's comments. Indeed, we realize the SG adds costs. Hence we will only make it if we exceed our funding goal by a reasonable margin. Our funding goal is based on the minimum amount we need to make LoafNest orders. So every cent till the funding goal will go towards LoafNest. We do however hope the stretch goals motivates more backers to spread the word and help us achieve the funding goal sooner.

Review from Kickstarter
Have you baked sourdough bread in the LoafNest? Do you have a sourdough recipe that works well that you can share? I'm excited to bake with the LoafNest, and I've been a big fan of sourdough bread lately. Thanks for creating such a cool product!

Review from Kickstarter
trfl: Thank you for the award. Looking forward to when this KS ends and getting a LoafNest. Might just have to put my bread machine away. For the community recipes do you want the new ideas posted in the main comments or in the Update comments?
As for SG what are you looking for to add value to the LoafNest? A breadbasket? I'm thinking to keep with cast iron for SGs how about a cast iron garlic roaster?
https://www.youtube.com/watch…
The problem with SG is cost/value added to the KS. I'd rather see funding go to making the LoafNest rather than SGs.

@Nurseychic,
Thanks for your suggestion. Yes, it would be really nice to have a handy reference of a lot of 'tailored for LoafNest' recipes. We are already working on building a 'LoafNest community recipes' section on our website http://trfl.nl We will share a preview soon. When we have a good number of recipes, we plan to make it into a downloadable eBook for the community. I guess the first community contributor award goes to @Loopy for the eclectic Nordic Nutbread recipe :)

Review from Kickstarter
I think a LoafNest baking book would be amazing...even if just a download. Modified just for LoafNest...takes the guess work out of modifying current recipes. Or a webpage or facebook page where people can share their recipes. I would be interested.

Dear Matt,
That is a fair point. Our initial plan was not to include extra liner to keep the logistics simple. But because of frequent requests now, we will work on it to make it a possibility. Please check out our next update. Thanks!

Question: will it be possible to pledge for additional liners? They sound pretty durable, but they're definitely the weak link compared to the cast iron :)

Dear Tim,
Thanks for backing and sharing your project. I am now your backer too :)
It is wonderful to see how a sculpture of bread can be so evocative.
I think this is what the Kickstarter community is all about. Connecting through things that we feel strongly about.

Dear Shrivalli,
We are fellow bread lovers and have just pledged to your campaign! We already make no-knead bread but are looking forward to working with your "oven". I am also running a Kickstarter campaign called 100 Little Loaves. It is more about bread as art, if you will. I am a sculptor and am making bread-loaf sculptures from stone. I thought you might enjoy the campaign, so here's a link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1392047624/100-little-loaves-0… Your campaign is beautiful crafted, very clear, organized and informative. I commend you! Best,
Tim

Review from Kickstarter
Dear Benji,
We have not tried the flour you shared but we have used a similar flour before (https://www.amazon.de/Soubry-Céréales-5000g-Packung-Vollkornbrot/dp/B01G1PJ8TG) and it works well. You would be amazed to know how using normal flour, yeast, water and salt gives excellent results that are equivalent to or often better than the results from specialized flours.
We often use https://www.ah.nl/producten/product/wi951/ah-patent-tarwebloem that costs 65 cents a kilo! In the flour you shared, I notice there is 1.4% dry yeast included which a bit more than what we recommend for LoafNest recipe. You can compensate for the high yeast by reducing the raise time or partly raising within a refrigerator or both, if this is your favorite flour. But then I would say just try the normal flour once :)

Hi there!
I am from germany and i love this bread: Aurora Bauernkruste Brotbackmischung,1er Pack (1x 500 g) https://www.amazon.de/dp/B00UMVC3LQ/ Its a finish breadmixture. Just add water, mix it and so on..
Will this work too?
No problem if u dont want to import this stuff :-P

Yes, it did taste amazing too! And it was incredibly easy to make. Thank you for sharing it. It is really a nice idea to try out nominated recipes with LoafNest. In our next update we will ask all backers to nominate their favorite recipes. In the meanwhile, all current and future backers, what would you like us to try with LoafNest? What is your favorite recipe that you would like to try with LoafNest? Let us know in comments and we will try to make it happen.

That looks amazing! The bottom looks better than using parchment paper.
Now where's my LoafNest? It's great to see how the LoafNest tackles different recipes.
An idea to push this KS forward. Have backers vote for a recipe to try for each week of this KS. Then bake the winning vote. With ~30 days left that's like four loafs.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Carlos,
Yes, we do agree it is quite a bit especially compared to the value we offer on the product itself.
We are apologize we could not make it lower in spite of our best efforts. On the positive side, this shipping is inclusive of all taxes and duties and guaranteed not to have any additional costs of import.
LoafNest is heavy and relatively large. For US/EU/CAN where we have the benefit of large volumes, and nearer distance (from Europe where we ship from), we could offer a much lower shipping rate of 16 EUR. For Australia, the rate is based on the most economical shipping we could find inclusive of all costs till the end customer.
Thanks for your understanding. I hope you see combined value of such a great product still attractive after the shipping.

50 euro shipping seem a bit too much
trfl
Review from Kickstarter
About additional unit, please just multiply the total amount (reward+shipping) with the number of units you want and edit your pledge.
For example, if you want 3 sets at 89 Eur reward and 16 Eur shipping then edit your pledge to (89+16)*3 = 315 Eur.
