How do traditional German bakers‘ loaves look? Well formed,
attractively marked and with light grooves in the surface. Our oval baskets
are made of untreated rattan.
Inside dimensions: 10" long x 6" wide at the rim. Tapering down to 7 3/4" x 4" at the base. Designed to accommodate up to a 2 pound loaf.
How to Use: Dust the proofing basket with flour and
the risen dough drops easily onto your baking surface. For proofing very
wet doughs, as called for with the popular no knead bread recipes, for
example, the optional cloth liner (see below) is the simplest solution.
Working flour (rice flour is particularly effective) into the cloth
liner will release wet dough.
Care Instructions: Cleaning the proofing
basket is usually just a matter of tapping it on the edge of your
kitchen sink. If necessary, rinse it out with hot water with your faucet
in spray mode. Shake off excess water and place upside down over still
warm oven to dry quickly. Don’t use soap.
