Baking Bread in Chinese Clay Sand Pots?

Does anyone have experience in using clay sand pots to bake bread in?  They have to be soaked for 24 hours in water and go into a cool oven so they don't break.  They are the perfect shape to proof in,  should steam great and work for breads that go into a cool oven like some challah's and others.

Hi dabrownman - welcome to TFL!

I recall some TFL conversations about baking in clay pots, but can't recall exactly when.  Maybe a year ago?  Not sure. 

If  you plug "clay pots" into the TFL search bar, lots of hits will pop up and hopefully you'll find something helpful.   Lots of reading material, for certain!

There is a ton of stuff after searching.  That will be my next attempt.
