Banneton baskets are used to support 'free-form' (not baked in a loaf tin) shaped bread dough as it rises (final 'proof/rise'/final fermentation).
These baskets can be used for sourdough and instant (quick-rise) bakers yeast breads and gives a traditional rustic finish the the loaves.
*DO NOT PUT BANNETONS IN THE OVEN* The dough is gently tipped out of the basket before baking.
Bannetons can be used with the included cloth liner (recommended for wet dough) and/or generously dusted with flour (e.g. wheat, rice, potato starch). The flour helps prevent the dough from sticking. Rice flour and potato starch have the best non-stick properties.
