Brotformen-cane-proofing-baskets-batard.png German BATARD- Proofing Basket OUT OF STOCK SKU: #4167


Quantity: Hand-made in Germany, these baskets are a newly found treasure for us. They were made especially for FG pizza & Italian, and beaming with quality.

The baskets are very nice, white in color, sturdy and firm construction, and traditionally shaped.

The great feature about these baskets are their shape! The are wider at the mouth, than they are at the bottom. This allows full development during rise, better adhesion of flour to dough, and these baskets make it much easier to pop the dough out of the form.

Outside dimensions: 13.25" x 5.75" x 3" Inside dimensions: 12.50" x 5" x 3"

These German-made, bread proofing baskets are labeled many names: Benneton, brotform, brotformen, willow baskets, cane baskets and coil baskets to mention a few. What ever you want to call them, you can't beat the QUALITY or the PRICE that we are offering.

For those who have never used these, proofing your bread in these baskets allow one to retain a beautiful artisan flour design on your loaves when finished.

Dust the baskets with flour, (I use semolina) your bread proofs sitting inside these brotforms inside these brotforms. When it's time to bake, invert the basket on your peel and transfer the bread, the dusting of flour is now left on the unbaked bread and supports a spiral design of flour, typical of European bakers.

The final result is the mark of a true artisan baker.

Bread-couche-bagguette2.png Dough Fermentation Fabric -Baker's Couche SKU: #4218


Dough, fold, dough, fold, dough, fold..... this pattern is known in the bread baking world as a Baker's Couche.

We have found a professional fabric that works very well for dough fermentation. It allows the loaves to breath without drying. It's light weight... and even washable! (although I never wash mine).

This material offers a new and hygienic solution for bread-fermentation cloth. The advantages are: the material does not fray, or shrink if washed. It is very flexible, lightweight and naturally resistant to mold.

This is the most important part... it's approved and compliant with food safety standards.

We are offering 23.5"x 36" for $19.99. If you require a Couche longer than 36", email us and we can prepare a size that fits your needs.

Frankie's Notes: I personally use this product and like how light-weight it is...I used to use kitchen towels, but I really like this better. It's very lightweight and sturdy. It holds the dough form well.

You can see this cloth demonstrated in our video, located on the FG Video page.

Made in France.
