Product Description

The Andrew James 1kg Banneton Basket is made from natural rattan - a beautiful material that allows you to create stunning artisan loaves at home.

Beautifully handcrafted bread is a bakers dream. The aroma of it baking, the golden crust, how the butter just glides over it - it's an incredible experience.

We understand baking is a fine art - almost scientific with its succinct recipes, and a lot of things can go wrong.

To make it easier for home bakers across the world, we've produced our Natural Rattan Banneton Dough Proving Basket.

Sometimes called Brotforms or Brotformen, these wonderful baskets are a bakers secret technique to creating stunning artisan loaves such as a French Boule or a traditional sourdough.

Ideal for proving your dough its especially advantageous when baking with a highly hydrated loaf as it helps form your loaf and keep its shape when baking.

To prepare your banneton basket simply dust the inside of the basket with a light smattering of flour. This will ensure your dough won't stick.

Once the proving (or proofing) stage has finished, all you need to do is gently tip the banneton basket until the dough leaves it and settles on your prepared baking tray.

You'll notice your bread will have a superior crust after proving in our basket. This is due to the natural properties of rattan - you'll never go back to expensive shop bought bread!

Large enough to hold 500g of dough you can bake to your heart's content! Easy to clean, simply shake the excess flour from the basket and wipe it clean with a lightly damp cloth.

Additional Information

Always allow the basket to completely dry before use

Dimensions (cm): 22L x 22W x 8.5H

Good bit of bakery kit for the artisan baker, even the would be try harder ones. I got it for around £6, which is why I bought it for my sour dough bread. Otherwise they all seem to cost around £11-£13 which is a lot for what it is. Tip: they all need seasoning well with whatever flour you will use. I used rice flour. Smother it with flour the first time, leave no circle or crevice untouched and all will be well. If it doesn't go according to plan it will after a few tries as it seasons - not the fault of the banneton. I don't wash mine unless I have to. Serves me well.

The diameter of this banetton was not given although it is sold as suitable for 1kg of dough.It measures 21.5cm which is usually sold as suitable for 500g of dough. This is disappointing as it was the lager size I wanted.

The supplier kindly sent me a review sample for evaluation, the opinions expressed here are entirely my own •

This is a natural Rattan basket which looks very similar to cane. I have only ever used a banneton when making sour dough. I first learnt to use one of these by my mother in law years ago who was from Madeira and she swore that this was the reason her bread was always a good shape and golden in colour as well as delicious :-)

To use this banneton it is best to dust it well with flour (I use rye flour) before adding your dough mixture into the bowl to prove. By dusting it, it helps release the dough from the basket and not stick to it. Some bannetons will require you to spray a light mist of water onto them but this one seems to work great with just the usual dusting of flour. When you have finished using it all you need to do is shake it over the sink to release the flour and then store it away for the next time.

I bought a separate cover for proving and it fitted nicely onto the bowl.

As with other products by this seller, the item comes with a 2 year warranty.

Works great.

1. Oil with a paper towel soaked in olive oil. Go into every crevice and crack (including the upper rim)
2. Put half a cup of rice flour inside and rotate around to coat lightly. Then get your hand dirty and rub the rice flour into every tiny opening and rotate the basket around as you do it.
3. Give a final shake and rotate again to coat with the rice flour that flowed to the bottom
4. Ready. It won't stick!

You may wash the flour off and go through these steps again but I recommend simply scraping lightly with your dough scraper and applying a new layer of rice flour before storing it in a dry place.

This product is great. It has turned my homemade bread look like something from an artisan baker. It has a sturdy contruction and the concentric rings make a lovely pattern on bread dough.

Well made. good value for money. Provides a lovely ribbed finish to the sourdough. Be sure to put a lot of flour all the way up to prevent sticking

This was supposed to be a Banneton suitable for 1Kg of dough but I'm dubious. The package came with no labelling or despatch note so am not sure that it isn't the smaller version

I bake sourdough bread and these bannetons are absolutely brilliant, here's a tip for you, wet dough tends to stick, we all know that, but did you know that if you sift a fine coating of Rice flour (not ground rice, rice flour is very fine) into the banneton (and i mean a fine coating, you should still see most of the banneton through the rice flour), the dough will easily drop out, Rice flour is better than Teflon, i place a strip of baking parchment over the banneton when turning dough out onto the worktop.
