La Cloche - Broken

Hi all, does anyone have any tips to repair my cloche? The bottom part has cracked into  2 pieces, its a clean break so wondering whether there is any way to stick them back together with a non toxic heat resistant glue.


Is this my fault for placing the cloche in a hot oven from cold or is this a defective cloche?

I've only used it 3 times! So iit works out at £15 per loaf - joy!!!

Measure your Cloche base and head for the garden supply store and hopefully you'll find, as I did, a saucer shaped flower pot base. You'll need to find and mark the sweet spot where the base and cover seat the best.
