The Banneton baskets retain and absorb warmth, provide a consistent shape and texture and ensure the formation of a healthy crust by controlling moisture conditions on the surface of the dough. Also great for use as bread baskets for serving bread and dinner rolls.
Bannetons are great for doughs that are too sloppy to proof as free-standing loaf without flowing into a flatbread. Bread proofed in a basket can, therefore, be wetter as the dough is held in shape during the proofing process. Once proofed, the loaf is flipped or rolled out of the banneton basket and goes straight into the hot oven, giving it little chance to relax into a puddle before the bake.
Made from 100% natural cane and are secured with stainless rust-free pins.

Lovely Sourdough Loaves
Very nice and easy to use. Good for about a 500g flour loaf, nice lines and very artisan looking. Coat well with flour before placing loaf in, upside down. I have also been adding sesame and poppy seeds for a tastier loaf.
Comme chez le boulanger!
To release without sticking I first coat the inside with a spray oil, then give it a sprinkle of brown rice flour which I shake about to coat, knocking out the excess. This works a treat and I get great looking loaves from a decent basket. the stated max quantity 1kg of dough is too much though.
The dough sticks inside the lines, even with a good quantity of flour and not easy to clean. Lovely idea to prove in a natural product and have lines in the loaf. I am no master baker so perhaps others will have better luck.
