Professional grade banneton made in Germany from compressed wood fibre. Bannetons, also called proofing baskets or brotform are used in the baking process to help as the dough proofs, for it’s final rise and offers a support structure before you intend to bake. This is an all important piece of equipment for the serious baker.
Banneton are often made with cane rattan, a climbing palm made from tropical rainforests and not ideal for environmental reasons. Our bannetons are made using compressed wood fibre or pulp from managed spruce in Germany and have a much smaller environmental footprint.
To use simply dust your banneton with flour before putting the dough in to proof, to avoid the dough from sticking. When you are ready to bake, tip out onto your surface (baking sheet, peel etc) before scoring and baking.
Please leave your banneton to dry in a clean environment before next use.
