Any home baker will attest to Le Creuset's place on their ultimate wish list for pots, pans and kitchenware.

The signature French-made cast-iron pots have cemented themselves as cult staples, boasting high-quality materials, a gorgeous provincial look and an easy-to-use ergonomic design.

If you thought you knew every Le Creuset home product, an exciting addition has made quite the entry. And, it's on Amazon.

The signature kitchenware leaders have launched an enamelled cast iron bread oven and it's already earned a solid five-star rating.

The beautifully designed appliance comes in popular colours, including the almost-sold-out white, each selling for $1119.

The 1.75 Quart (9.5") bread oven is crafted from Le Creuset's signature high-quality cast iron, delivering exceptional heat distribution and retention, while the tight-fitting domed lid traps and circulates steam for a crisp crust, maximum rise and flavour.

The oven has a low-profile base, for even browning and a golden, crispy crust, imprinted with Le Creuset's hallmark three rings to brand each bake. Cute!

The sturdy ergonomic knobs and handles are designed for easy lifting, even with bulky oven mitts, and the porcelain enamel finish traps flavour and makes cleaning easy.

Already, Amazon shoppers are loving it.

"Highly recommended," one customer revealed.

"It is a wonderful bread oven.

"I made the two recipes from the Le Creuset website, both loaves of bread turned out delicious.

"I am enjoying it a lot!"

A second home baker attested to the amazing results: "This bread oven creates a beautiful loaf with a crunchy crust and perfect crumb on the interior. You will never go back to bread from a store. Just buy it!"

A third person added to the five-star ratings, applauding a "perfect bake every time".

While the bread oven will be on many must-have lists, the four-figure price point won't be for everyone's budget.

Fantastic alternatives include Amazon's highest-rated cast iron bread ovens, the French-made Emile Henry bread cloche for $230, with 587 high ratings, or Puricon's 5.5 Quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven for $83.99, with over 4.5-star reviews.

If you want to start off small and bake a humble loaf, but still want the Le Creuset brand, you can shop their Non-Stick Bakeware Loaf Tin for $55.

Happy baking!
