Also known as “bannetons” or “brotforms”, our cane baskets are perfect for all bread bakers.
These baskets give support and shape to dough during the final proving step, and leave a beautiful spiral shape on the finished loaf.
Before adding dough to the basket, dust generously with flour. Place the dough in the basket, seam up. When turning the dough onto a tray or dutch oven for baking, the seam will be at the bottom, and the beautiful spiral pattern at the top. The dough should come out fairly easily with gravity, or a little rocking backward and forward will usually loosen the dough. Don’t wash flour the baskets after use, but shake off the excess flour before storage. Do not bake bread in the baskets.
