Wood pulp proofing baskets have been used in European bakeries for over 100 years; for good reason!
- They absorb moisture evenly, creating crispier crust
- They are environmentally friendly, made from sustainable wood pulp
- They are easy to clean, just allow them to dry completely between uses
- Their thick walls offer thermal insulation, limiting dough temperature fluctuations
- They are sturdy and have a professional look and feel
- They last a lifetime
I offer one size proofing basket, and it easily holds up to 1000g of dough. My go-to size is between 750g and 1000g.
This is the only basket I use in my baking.
These wood pulp proofing baskets are hand made in Germany, so slight fluctuations basket to basket are expected.

Absolutely love these wood pulp bowls for proofing my bread! I love them so much, I immediately ordered another batch, so I have four total. They are basically maintenance free, perfect size for my loaves, and once I flipped them out onto my bread mat they have an interesting skin on them that makes scoring the bread very easy. I believe the wood pulp must pull a little bit of moisture out of the bread’s outer skin. These will be the only Banneton I use in the future for sure!

Great banneton! Happy to have found it, I like how it states the range of weight it can accommodate. Would love to see a longer and thinner size some time! Great job.

I love this for creating batards without using a towel and minimal maintenance. They’re a perfect shape and size (especially when used with the bread mat and/or a standard Lodge combo cooker).
I also find the crust and crumb to be more uniform and consistent relative to classic bannetons, which I find to change slightly when coming out of the banneton.
Also, Mike has great has great customer support. I had a mishap before my first use (my fault) and Mike was very prompt in responding and helping.

I’m new to making sourdough and these proofing baskets were perfect for me. I started with one and liked the ease of use that I ended up buying two more. So far my bread has come out perfect every time. And when I’m done baking, I just put the basket in the hot, turned off oven and let it dry out to be ready for next time.

I bought this proofing basket and I cannot recommend it enough!! My ear and texture of my loaf have never been better! I also love the ease that I have to clean this basket- it makes my life SO much easier.

I have been using the same round bannetons for years but recently purchased some RHSD ones and can’t imagine using another. It has always been a challenge to get that consistent well-proofed but structurally strong dough in the past, but every single time I use one of these bannetons, it eliminates so many of the frustrations I have had in the past. Minimal flour is needed to keep it from sticking, the dough pops out easily and holds it shape and height extremely well, and it is the perfect size for a lodge combo cooker. All contribute to a perfect loaf with great oven spring and texture.

I have been baking sourdough for 5 years now and the RHSD Wood Pulp Proofing Basket are THE BEST. I just wish they would have been around sooner! The size is perfect for all my dough recipes and has created consistence across all my bakes. I’ve also seen more spring in all my loafs since using these baskets. Oh and the ears! Every loaf has come out with a Instagram worthy ear, perfection for any bread nerd. I cant recommend RHSD enough and pair your basket(s), hint get 2… always make 2 loafs, with a bread mat! Both are the best baking investment ever.
I recommended them to all my friends… get a bread mat too.

I recently switched from a traditional lined banaton to the RHSD wood pulp basket and I love it! My loaves have better color, a thinner crust, and actually seem to stay a little fresher a little longer (but that might also be because I switched from a 1:1:1 to a 1:2:2 feeding 🤷🏻♂️) My only wish is that he start carrying them in a circular boule shape!
I love my rhsd proofing baskets. When I turn out my dough, it holds its shape better than it holds in my other oval bannetons. I feel like it oaborbs more moisture. At any rate, I give these guys 5 stars. I’m sure I’ll be purchasing more.

I recently purchased two rhsd bannetons along with the bread mat and they are my go to baskets from now on. They are the best!
Shape and size is perfect. My bread results simply improved and I was able to experience better bread for the first time. Very happy with my purchases.

Bought these with the breadmat combo. Go for it you won’t be disappointed! Great proofing basket (so much better than the low price ones with the cloth) and the bread mat is fantastic. It was worth getting them to travel all the way to Australia 😉 Never using anything else again. Now onto RoseHill Sourdough #x.

I bought this recently and am so excited to use it! I love the shape and that it’s so easy to use. It came well packaged and with a card with some tips for how to use it properly, what size of loaf to make with it etc.

I have so many different proofing baskets that I’ve bought throughout the years and was just never satisfied with how they performed. Shape was never held, and it was difficult to get the dough in and especially out. These wood pulp baskets were an absolute game-changer. It makes the bread making process so easy, especially the scoring. My bread has never looked better!

Thanks for your prompt shipping Mike. My RHSD baskets and Bread Mats arrived Friday.
I am a newbie to sourdough baking and my son had suggested I check out your website. I have enjoyed your recipes and videos for the last few months. Today I followed your First Proofing Basket Loaf recipe using my long coveted new products.
My first batard! Wow. Bread Mat and basket more than delivered- an ear to die for and spring like I have never had before. Loaf looked as great as yours 😀 but even better – the taste! Both products easy to use. Loved the bottom of loaf too. Bottom crust was thinner and easier to cut.
I now feel like a ‘real’ baker.
Thanks for your support with website, social media, and now the fabulous Mat and basket.

I have been so happy with these proofing baskets! Easier and less mess than the traditional wood baskets – and my loaves have come out looking beautiful with a Great ear. The price for two baskets can’t be beat and I love supporting rosehill!

Love the wood pulp baskets! They are so much better than traditional woven baskets. The loaf was easy to remove and score, and I got a terrific bake and rise.

I LOVE these baskets! The oval shape is perfect and they are so easy to care for. I think my favorite feature is the way by loaves hold their shape after I turn them out into the bread mat for scoring. It’s like magic! I also like the way they stack easily in my cupboard. The size is perfect. The bread mat is also so handy! Can’t bake without these items now. Oh, and shipping was incredibly fast, even to Alaska!
