Mark Bittman has a follow up article about the no-knead bread including weight vs. volume, salt, pot sizes, other shapes and other flours. And, you can still watch the video with Jim Lahey making the bread.
Some discussion of enameled cast iron pots is going on over at this picture on Flickr. At the moment I’m still interested in oval pots primarily to shape the bread (which I anticipate making regularly), but I’m warming up to the idea of a round pot since there are more affordable options out there and I think it might be even better for using to make stews. Do you have a cast iron pot? Do you love it?
