Bread Proving Basket - Small/Large Round

Our bread proving baskets (bannetons) are made from sustainable birchwood cane or rattan. They are used for the fermentation of the dough and forming bread loaves. Prepare the basket by dusting it with flour, then put the dough in the basket and leave to rise. The small basket is suitable for making 500g loaves, the large basket is suitable for making 1kg loaves.

The basket is easy to clean. It needs to be brushed with a hard brush and washed with water. Do not use soap to clean it. When drying the basket put the basket in the oven at 130°C for 45mins, this will dry the basket and kill any possible germs and moulds. The baskets are not suitable for baking bread in the oven.
