Additional Information

Bake Artisan Bread in Your Own Oven

Whether you are a seasoned bread baker or a novice, using a banneton will help you get a crispier loaf with a deliciously crunchy crust. This is because banneton baskets are made of natural cane and work by creating a slightly humid micro-climate between the dough and the banneton during proofing. As the dough dries it creates a skin, and this is what makes a superb crust on artisan bread.

Professional bakeries use bannetons regularly to achieve the beautiful spiral effect on their artisan bread boules. For a smooth look of the loaf simply use the cloth liner that comes with this banneton.

Bannetons are used for proofing the bread dough before baking (commonly referred to as the second rise). By containing the rising dough the basket prevents sideways spread so your loaf comes up taller, not wider. Spirals of the basket create a beautiful pattern of flour that contrasts with score marks (made right before baking to help the loaf expand).

Our bannetons come with a handy flexible bowl scraper, which is very helpful in removing all of your sticky dough from the bowl when you're ready to shape your bread. Before using our banneton be sure to read the Use and Care Instructions provided in a PDF format.

Get one of these bannetons now and treat yourself to a fresh crispy loaf baked in your own kitchen. You will be so pleased with the results you will want to buy a second one!

Just received the basket and it looks like a quality product. I look forward to making some fancy bread.
It's not something I "need," but it's definitely one of those nice touches that makes you want to practice the craft of bread making.

Update:) I used the banneton basket and I love it! The presentation is so much more beautiful! I added a picture which compares a regular loaf and the banneton loaf. Now I wish I had more of them, to make them all like that at the same time. I can also use it as a bread basket after I brush out the flour and line it with a linen napkin. Definitely a fun addition to my kitchen experience!
I make homemade bread all the time but it’s always “loaf” bread or some kind of flavored bread (cinnamon, ranch, etc.). I have not used a proofing basket before until now. It’s not something that is difficult or hard, it is fairly easy. You will get an email with Use and care instructions when you purchase.

What you get: 1 8.5” round banneton proofing basket, cloth liner, and a bowl scraper.

When you get your banneton basket you will first need to “condition” the basket by misting it with water then dusting with a thick layer of flour. *NOTE* do not use until you do this! It may take a few times of doing this before you have a nice “build up” of flour (a thin layer) and a moisture level that helps the dough. Also DO NOT EVER BAKE in your banneton basket.

To clean the basket simply shake/brush out the excess flour after each use. Once or twice a year you will need to place your banneton basket in the... Read more
I am relatively new to bread baking. A friend of mine encouraged me to get started. We do enjoy sourdough bread in our family and a slice of a freshly baked loaf is a powerful motivator :) I bought this banneton basket to be able to get this beautiful shape and pattern on my breads.
I really liked the pdf instructions that were emailed to me when my item shipped. They were nicely done, easy to understand, with good pictures. Being a novice it was so helpful to be able to read about use and care of this banneton and how/why it works.

This proofing basket is nice and sturdy, the materials seem to be of good quality. The cloth liner and a dough scraper that come in this set are a nice addition. I can use the scraper for a lot of things, not only for dough - it is like a huge spatula and the shape is perfect to clean out the round sides of any bowl. The basket came neatly wrapped in tissue paper inside the polybag. White tissue is such a nice touch, makes the whole set... Read more
