High quality banneton, brotform or proving baskets are an essential item for the artisan bread baker. They are used to support the dough while it rises (proves) to give it improved structure, just before it goes into the oven to bake.

Bannetons from wood-fibre need only be dusted in flour (commonly rye) to prevent the dough from sticking, although a liner may be added to the cane ones, if desired. Between use, they should be stacked in a clean and dry place.

Just before it goes into the oven, the dough is tipped out of the banneton for baking and it is usual for a pattern to be cut into it for improved crust and enhanced appearance using a tool called a grignette (a handled lame or blade). You will find grignettes in our shop along with many other items for the artisan baker.
