"Michele Kreitman" <michelekreitman@gmail.com> asked about the Lekue 
Silicone Bread Maker. The closest our experience comes is baking 
no-knead recipes in a cast iron pot. But the Lekue has an average 
Amazon review of 4.2 out of 5 and is only $21.19, so we are going to 
give it a try.

This is the url of the Amazon reviews: 

Some comments from a review "LOVE this silicone bread maker for no 
knead bread, vegs, meats (also use in microwave for vegetables)" by 
sandy on Feb 5, 2015:

Started with limited quantity of flour and container closed for 
entire baking. Wanted a larger loaf, so used my regular recipe for no 
knead bread: 500g King Arthur bread flour, 375g water, 12g sea salt, 
1/2 tsp SAF instant yeast. Mixed and left covered with a plate at 
room temp (80F) for 11 hours. Baked at 425F for 30 min with container 
closed, then unclipped the top to allow the loaf more room as baking 
completed. Crust is wonderful, crumb outstanding.
