      Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 8 to 18 hours.
    3. 3
      Lay 12- by 18-inch sheet of parchment paper inside 10-inch skillet and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
    4. 4

      Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature until dough has doubled in size and does not readily spring back when poked with finger, about 2 hours.
    8. 8
      About 30 minutes before baking, adjust oven rack to lowest position, place 6- to 8-quart heavy-bottomed Dutch oven (with lid) on rack, and heat oven to 500 degrees. Lightly flour top of dough and, using razor blade or sharp knife, make one 6-inch-long, 1/2-inch-deep slit along top of dough.

      I saw this on America's Test Kitchen and this bread is the best I've ever made and so easy - Yum, Yum, can't wait to make it again. Thanks for posting the recipe.

      This bread turned out great, it's a HUGE improvement over the original no-knead that went around awhile ago. The dough is firmer and easier to work with. The parchment trick makes it very easy to shape and get in the pot. I used my 5 quart crock pot liner and glass lid to bake, worked fine. I forgot to slash the top but that was fine too, not as fancy looking I guess.
