How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Mix and Knead Dough

    By following the bread recipe of your choice, fully mix your dough in this round blue bowl and then knead it with your hands as you normally would. If you don't have a bread recipe to use, or if you want to try a new one, consult the recipe guide that's included with each bowl.

  2. Let Dough Rise

    After you've mixed and kneaded your dough, you'll need to leave it in the bowl and let it rise before it can be cooked. This will typically take one to three hours. To determine whether your dough is ready to be cooked, you can poke one gloved finger about a half-inch into it. If you're able to see the poke mark after you've removed your finger, you can consider it ready.

  3. Close Bowl

    If you look carefully at your bowl, you'll notice that there's a narrow slot underneath one of the two handles. To close your bowl, you'll have to slide the opposite handle through that slot. Following that, the shape of the bowl will narrow and hug the bread dough that's inside more tightly.

  4. Cook Dough in Oven

    Once your bowl is closed, you can set your oven's temperature in accordance with the recipe you're following (the bowl will tolerate temperatures up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit). Place your bowl on your oven's top rack and follow your recipe's guidance to set the oven's timer.

  5. Remove From Oven

    When your oven's timer goes off, put on an oven mitt and remove your Yoshi Prep And Bake bowl from the oven by hanging onto its handles. Open it up by detaching one handle from the slot you inserted it in earlier, and view your newly cooked bread!

How It Works

The shape of this bowl, when it's closed, will enable you to create a homemade loaf of bread that's soft in the middle and crispier on the outside. First of all, when you close the bowl, this will have a convective effect, causing steam to circulate around all the dough inside. Meanwhile, two holes near the top of the bowl (one on each side) will still remain open, and act as vents that'll allow your oven's hot air to flow through the bowl. This entire process of air circulation should prevent your bread from drying out or becoming mushy, especially on the outside, as it cooks.


  • Cooks Various Bread Types

    You can cook any type of bread, including gluten-free and low-carb alternatives to traditional flour-based loaves, in this bowl. Other food items, such as fish, meats, vegetables, eggs, and even cake mixes can also be cooked in the bowl. With other types of food, the process of mixing your ingredients, closing the bowl, and adding it to your oven should be the same.

  • Microwave and Dishwasher Safe

    If you don't feel like cooking a particular dish in your oven, the Yoshi Prep And Bake Bowl is also microwave-safe. Furthermore, it's dishwasher safe, so if you have a dishwasher, you can load it into the appliance when you're done cooking instead of washing it by hand.

  • Makes Round Bread Loaves

    Those users who want to make a round loaf of bread (as opposed to a rectangular one) will be able to do so by leaving their bowl open in the oven, instead of closing it. The same goes for round cakes. However, you must keep in mind that the open bowl may make the cooking process slightly less efficient, due to a reduced convective effect.

  • Non-Stick

    The Yoshi Prep And Bake bowl has a non-stick design, which means that when you want to remove bread or other food items from the bowl, they won't cling to its inner surface. This will be the case, regardless of whether you add a lubricant (like butter or oil) to the bowl before putting it in your oven. Moreover, there likely won't be pesky bits of food residue left behind for you to scrub or pick off.

  • Folds for Storage

    If you close up your bowl when you're not using it and there are no ingredients in it, it'll likely fit in a medium-sized kitchen drawer for storage purposes. When you need it again, it'll be able to quickly spring open to its full size.

Positive Points

  • Difficult to Break

    Since this type of bowl is made of silicone, it'll be almost impossible for you to break it, even if you or someone in your household drops it on the floor. While you knead or mix your dough, it'll also be able to withstand being rocked from side to side along with your movements. This makes it a better alternative for making bread than a glass bowl that could shatter quickly, especially if kids or other amateur bakers will be involved in the bread-making process.

  • Recipe Book, Knife Included

    As mentioned above, you'll get a recipe guide with your bowl, and you'll also get a general-purpose kitchen knife that you can use to cut a wide variety of food items.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Pour Directly From Bowl

    If you use your Yoshi Prep And Bake to make a dish that's part of your dinner, such as an egg-based or vegetable-based one, you may not need an additional serving plate. Instead, you'll likely be able to partially open up your bowl and pour the food directly onto a plate or into a dish for consumption.

  2. Take Care With Runny Food

    Some of the ingredients of a dish you plan on cooking in this bowl may be runny, so you'll need to be careful that they don't spill out the vented openings. For that reason, when you place your bowl in your oven or microwave, make sure the handles are pointing straight up. In the microwave, you may even want to add a plate underneath it to catch any drips. Similarly, you could add a cookie sheet underneath your bowl in the oven, to serve the same purpose.

Save Money

Without a piece of kitchenware like the Yoshi Prep And Bake bowl, you might find yourself frequently visiting a bakery to obtain delicious-tasting loaves of bread. Once you've got one of these bowls, though, you may be able to avoid opening your wallet at that bakery, as making tasty bread at home with your own ingredients is a more economical solution.
