I bought these as a gift for my sister. She used them for the first time this weekend. She oiled and floured the baskets, but the dough still stuck, and the bread didn't keep the shape when baked which is a bit of a shame. However, she's going to persevere and is hoping it's because they are new and need a few 'oilings' to stop the dough sticking, so fingers crossed. Oh, and the bread was delicious!
