The Round Bread-Proofing Basket and Oval Bread-Proofing Basket are specially designed for professional and artisan home bakers. Perfect for proofing softer bread dough that requires added support, this baking accessory provides structure and shape during the dough proofing (rising) process. Its coiled texture helps add an artisan beauty and professional finish to homemade loaves of bread.
Handcrafted from palmwood rattan, it’s strong and durable to outlast thousands of uses. The removable cotton-linen blend liner (plus a dusting of flour) prevents the dough from sticking and adds an even deeper decorative appeal. Ideal for proofing softer doughs, like Irish soda bread, sourdough, and French bread, but can be used for adding decorative interest to any bread dough that requires proofing. To use, simply place the cloth liner inside the basket, dust with flour, add kneaded dough, allow it to rise, and bake on a baking sheet.
After each use, brush out excess flour, hand wash the liner with warm, soapy water, and hand wash the basket without any soap. Air dry thoroughly before storing. Instructions included.
