No-Knead Bread

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 hours
Total Time 5 hours 10 minutes


  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 3 cups hot water 130-140 F
  • extra flour for shaping and handling dough


  • Combine the flour, salt, and yeast in a bowl and whisk well.
  • Add the hot water to the bowl and mix until fully absorbed.  The dough will be sticky.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let proof at room temperature for at least 3-4 hours or until dough has doubled in size.
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 450F
  • Place the Wonder Cooker in the oven for 30 mins.
  • While the Wonder Cooker heats up in the oven, turn out the dough onto parchment paper generously coated with flour (the dough will still be pretty sticky).
  • Roll and shape the dough into an oval loaf.  Use a scraper to help fold over the dough and add more flour as needed.  Handle the dough as minimally as possible.
  • Carefully remove the Wonder Cooker from the oven.
  • Place the loaf onto the Shallow Pan with the parchment paper and cover with the Casserole Pan to form the Dutch Oven
  • Place the Dutch Oven in the oven and bake at 450 F for 45 minutes.
  • Remove the Casserole Pan and bake at 460F for an additional 10-15 minutes or until crust has browned to your desire.
  • Cool before serving.
