There is a remarkable reaction where a glider collides with the bi-loaf, displacing it by (3,6) and generating another glider in the same direction as the incident glider. The only other known reactions of this type involve stable reflectors, which have a displacement of (0,0), alongside a constellation of three blocks. This displacement reaction has enabled the construction of half-baked knightships:

It can also act as a one-time glider reflector in various other collisions.
Half-bakery is the eleventh most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than barge but more common than mango. It is also the fifteenth most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.
