How a Banneton Can Benefit Your Home Baking

A cane banneton brings ease to the life of home bakers in more ways than one might imagine. Here are just a few benefits that we can't get over

Well-Formed Loaf (or boule)


If you're worried about your dough losing shape before the heat can get to it, a banneton can take that burden off your shoulders. So long as you transport your dough straight from the banneton to the oven, this method of proofing basically ensures a well-formed loaf.

Baskets made from cane rattan with a spiral pattern leave behind a beautiful spiral shape as a print on the crust, a popular characteristic of rustic, hand-made loaves. Natural rattan cane absorbs some of moisture during proofing and gives your bread a good crust.

Healthy Homemade Bread


Our products comply with food safety regulations, so you can make the healthiest artisanal homemade bread possible.

The banneton can be used for high hydrated breads like sourdough bread and any other bread recipes.

Unique Touch


  • When all is said and done, many people wind up with flavorful bread that may or may not look as good as it tastes. That's why people love the cane banneton because the imprint that the woven basket leaves on the loaf!
  •  
  • Using our handwoven cane banneton helps keep your bread attractive, tackling a strong foe in the world of at-home baking. Not only will it retain a handsome boule, but the spiral effect granted by the proofing basket will be a unique touch added to your repertoire

Easy to Use, Clean & Maintain


Bannetons work best with a thin build-up of flour and moisture which helps your dough leave the basket before baking. You could use normal white flour for flouring the banneton and dusting the baking linen. The rising basket is that simple to use.

Cleaning a banneton is simple, and doesn't require soapy scrubbing. As such, you can rest assured a banneton won't add to your kitchen duties

In case you'd like to know more about Banneton and Proofing (Baking technique):

Banneton, borrowed from French banneton(originated from "banne", meaningwicker basket),is also called proofing basket or brotform (plural brotformen) in German (please read the definition here). Of German origin, the brotform supports the dough as it proofs and prevents shaped loaves spreading out in the proving times when the gluten relaxes.

It has become one of the necessary baking equipments to manipulate the speed and qualities of fermentation. Fermentation is a step in creating yeast breads and baked goods where the yeast is allowed to leaven the dough. Other baking equipments include dough proofer (a warming chamber used in baking that encourages fermentation of dough by yeast through warm temperatures and controlled humidity), dough retarder (a refrigerator used to control the fermentation of yeast when proofing dough) and couche (pronounced koosh, or bakery couch, or proofing cloth - a banneton substitute - to proof dough for longer loaves, such as baguettes or batards). Breads such as sandwich loaves and brioche are normally proofed in the bread pan in which they will be baked. Read more about Proofing, also called proving or more rarely blooming, technique here.
