These proofing baskets have been specially imported from Germany.
These are a sustainable product as they are made from local spruce pulp. Most of the cheap Chinese cane bread proofing baskets are made from cane harvested from virgin Indonesian rainforest.
These are a must have for anyone wanting to make their own rustic artisan style bread.
Bread proofing baskets have a few functions.
1. They are a container in which to proof your bread.
2. They help to create a uniform shape.
3. Probably most importantly, the wood pulp bannetons help to wick away moisture from the surface of the dough which helps to create a thin, crisp crust.
4. The ribbing inside the basket imprints onto the bread giving it an attractive texture.
5. The dough won’t stick – Unlike the cane varieties, no cloth is needed inside the basket. Just lightly flour it before use and the dough easily falls out when it’s ready to bake.
6. No clean up required. Just tap the excess flour out after use and store in a dry place until next time.
In this combo you will receive both a long oval (approximately 33cm long x 17cm wide x 7.5cm deep) and a small oval (approximately 26cm long x 25cm wide x 7.5 cm deep).
