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!

  2. Laila O’Boyle

    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.

  3. Ryan (verified owner)

    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.

  4. Bea Jung (verified owner)

    This is the best banneton I have every used!!! I love the smooth interior and exterior. It stays clean and has a great shape. The price is unbeatable and the quality is the best around!!! Thank you so much for creating this product!!!!

  5. Janie K (verified owner)

    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.

  6. Lynnea ruiz (verified owner)

    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.

  7. Aaron (verified owner)

    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.

  8. Amanda Tennant

    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.

  9. David Russo (verified owner)

    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!

  10. Sherry

    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.

  11. Dina (verified owner)

    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.

  12. Eric L. (verified owner)

    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.

  13. Alyson (verified owner)

    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.

  14. Dolores (verified owner)

    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!

  15. Brenda Harris (verified owner)

    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.

  16. Rachel (verified owner)

    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!

  17. Kathy (verified owner)

    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.

  18. Christine Higgins (verified owner)

    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!

  19. Jill Sauve (verified owner)

    It is absolutely wonderful using the proofing baskets and the bread mat. My loaves are turning out beautiful and I even love to open the fridge to smell the sourdough proofing in their ‘beds’. Thankyou so much for these wonderful products!

  20. Judy, @ohfortheloaf (verified owner)

    I never thought that switching from rattan bannetons to RHSD wood pulp bannetons would make SUCH a world of a difference! These bannetons wick moisture and reduce condensation on the surface of the dough, which prevents sticking and results in a crispier artisan crust! Since switching to RHSD wood pulp bannetons, my loaves have been noticeably easier to score and my crust has been consistently crisp. The best part is they’re so clean and care for. No more washing cloth banneton liners or dealing with crevices from rattan bannetons! Highly highly recommend these bannetons paired with TheBreadMat!

  21. Melanie (verified owner)

    Love my new proofing basket and bread mat. The basket cleans easily and my loaves maintain their shape.

  22. Cynthia (verified owner)

    These wood pulp bannetons work great! My bread crust is thin and crispy, and there’s absolutely no dough sticking when I invert the basket to remove the loaf. I make sure the banneton is coated well with rice flour before placing my dough, and the loaf slips out beautifully. The top of the loaf is set and easy to score.
    Love the RHSD banneton and The BreadMat. I use them with every bake. So much better than the banneton and parchment paper I was using before.

  23. Helena Scheffer (verified owner)

    I am super happy with my bread mat and wood pulp bannetons. I looked at a lot of other bannetons before ordering and was dismayed at the dismal reviews. I have nothing but good things to say about these! Easy to use, easy to clean, bread dough doesn’t stick. And no wasted parchment with the bread mat. Could not be better! Except the price. Being in Canada, the exchange was high. And in addition to shipping, there was duty and fees to pay, so the price ended up being high. But i don’t regret my purchase!

  24. Nancy (verified owner)

    Great service. Perfect size and shape. Nicest baskets I own.

  25. John (verified owner)

    After seeing two gardening influencers have positive, unpaid endorsements of these rhsd baskets, I decided to purchase 2 myself. And the results were an IMMEDIATE improvement compared to a traditional banneton. Not only are they incredibly easy to get the loaves out, but also yield a thin, cracker-like crust that is a delight to eat. Maintenance is easy too with just brushing out the excess flour (if any) and drying out in a cooling oven once you’re finished baking.

    These are a MUST for anyone baking their own sourdough bread!

  26. Bohdanna (verified owner)

    LOVE these proofing baskets (and the silicone mat). Just waiting for some round ones to be made! Unless I make smaller loaves, I barely touch my original cane bannetons.

  27. Heather (verified owner)

    I cannot recommend these baskets enough! They are sturdy and made of great material. The instructions are easy to read and I am making beautiful loaves of sourdough. I want to be constantly baking with them!

  28. Brian (verified owner)

    The proofing bowls are amazing! Super easy to use and the crumb is perfect. I will be buying some for my sourdough friends!

  29. Jamie (verified owner)

    The bread mat and proofing baskets are the best! Can’t bake without the mats anymore. They are a game changer!

  30. Rosanne (verified owner)

    Great product. Purchase when you’re ready to bring bread loaves to the next level. No complaints whatsoever.

  31. Maria Katz (verified owner)

    Great product. Exactly what I wanted

  32. Judy Calderon (verified owner)

    Best baking baskets ever

  33. Mr David (verified owner)

    so nice I bought it twice, absolutely loved these wood pulp baskets
    Honestly surprised how much better my loaves have been turning out
    Little pro tip you got to bench rest before you put them in so they don’t stick to the basket
    Love them!

  34. Tiffany

    Absolutely love love these mats ! Buy some

  35. Erica Theodoratos (verified owner)

    These are absolutely amazing. I ordered a 2 pack with the bread mats to try out after seeing them all over Instagram. I have a small home bakery and was very excited to try these. As soon as I tried the first one I was sold. I immediately ordered another 2 pack with bread mats. These are all I’ll use now. The wood pulp sort of dehydrates the surface of the dough, making it so much easier to score. I’ve even had improved oven spring with these. They are fantastic. A 1000g loaf bakes beautifully in my 7qt Dutch oven or my Le Creuset bread oven. They are so amazing! I will highly recommend these to any sourdough baker.

  36. Wendy (verified owner)

    By far the best proofing basket I’ve ever used! It’s perfect size and shape for an individual loaf and is holding up really well even after constant use. This wood pulp proofing basket, along with the The Bread Mat, have definitely upped my sourdough game.

  37. Mary A. Chastain (verified owner)

    I’ve been baking for 50 years. I have tried every type of proofing available to consumers. This one is the BEST!

  38. Sarah (verified owner)

    I am relatively new to making sourdough bread for my own starter. I saw this popping up on a lot of the accounts I follow. I was curious so I purchased one and now I will never use anything else! I feel like I get a much better ear on my loaves after they have been in my pulp basket. I will be getting more!

  39. Vera (verified owner)

    Now I have use them for quite a while can tell that those proofing baskets little too small, very hard to clean and got sticky after 2 times using. Love the silicon math but wish would be bigger also.
    I purchased one proofing basket on Amazon with liner and for me work much much better.

    • admin (verified owner)

      Hey Vera! Send me an email and let’s chat about the sticking issue you’re having. I bet I can help with that! So glad you’re loving The BreadMat! I’d love to help you learn to use the wood pulp basket and discover how much better it is than those ones with liners. Talk soon! -Mike

  40. Kelsi (verified owner)

    I absolutely love the proofing baskets and mats. They are excellent quality and the mats have saved me a ton of parchment already. I look forward to buying more in the future!

  41. Donna (verified owner)

    Love my new proofing basket and silicone mat
    So easy to use

  42. Meghan Donaghy (verified owner)

    I’ve been baking sourdough for almost 3 years and have a small collection of 18 bannetons from various places. Several weeks ago I wanted to add to the collection and ordered 2 of these. Not to be wasteful, but now I want to get rid of all my old ones and replace them with 18 more of these! The only reason I ever choose to not use them now is because I want them to stay in perfect condition because they are PERFECT!!! I can’t recommend them enough 👏👏👏

  43. Catherine Frankenfield (verified owner)

    I bought the 2 pack with the bread mats. I kept one and gave the other to my sister as a bday present (she has a small business selling sourdough bread). I loved it so much I ordered myself another set. They are game-changers ! Scoring is so much easier and I find the dough holds the shape better-I guess because of the moisture wicking wood. I can’t wait to see what my sister thinks on her next bake day.

  44. PY (verified owner)

    The proofing baskets were great to use.
    I love the BreadMat the most. 😉

  45. Lucie Che ette (verified owner)

    My loaves stand up so much more nicely with these baskets . The size is perfect .Once you have used them you don’t wNt to go back to others . I can hardly wait to get some round ones . Thanks to you Rosehill sourdough

  46. Goga Chkhaidze (verified owner)

    I have been baking the bread more then 5 years already and I have tried plenty of proofing baskets. When those amazing baskets arrived, I knew they were good at the very first glance, but the result was more then I expected. They are simply the best available on the market. Bough 2 more after a few bakes later. They are the BEST!

  47. Heidi

    Bread Mat and proofing baskets really are the best. I”m so glad I found them!

  48. Crystal Catron (verified owner)

    Look no further for the BEST proofing basket!!!! Best purchase ever!

  49. Catherine Breton

    I love my proofing baskets. It seems like it took my baking to the next level. I have to admit I have not been the best at cleaning them, but they definitely upped my game. And my family is very grateful 😊

  50. Corey Whitehurst (verified owner)

    The bread mat was awesome! Thanks you

  51. Kathy J (verified owner)

    I love these proofing baskets as nothing will stick to the insides as sometime exhibited by rattan baskets. Also inadvertently left a basket of dough for a week in the fridge and there was no problem releasing the dough from the banneton. I throw the baskets in the oven to dry after baking and that works great!

  52. Melissa Pruitt (verified owner)

    The proofing baskets are amazing! No more caked up flour on the canvas bags like my other ones! Also the bread mat was a game changer. The bottoms of my loaves are much easier to slice since I’ve started using the them! Way to go with that engineering bud!

  53. Shari Duncan (verified owner)

    My favorite banneton! I wish I had at least twenty of them! 🙂 I love the shape and feel of the dough when they’ve proofed in the wood pulp bannetons over other types of proofing bowls. Once my loaves are baked, I can tell which ones had been in these bowls and I love how they look.

  54. Andrea (verified owner)

    Love this basket – easy to prepare, use and love that it doesn’t need a liner or linen. Dough loves this proofing basket! As a smaller loaf-size baker, I would love one for 500 – 750g loaves, but no complaints here!

  55. Mary

    This banneton is the best! It’s my favorite, the quality is really good! I think my loaves a perfect every single time because the banneton and I don’t have to use a liner. Thank you for this awesome products.

  56. Janae

    The five stars are credited to Mike at RHSD, who quickly got back to me with answers to a few questions I had, and replaced my damaged basket within days.. THIS is why I support companies like this instead of Amazon. Will be recommending both the bread mat and the basket to all the bread bakers I know. Thanks again Mike.

  57. Erin @_freyas.kitchen_ (verified owner)

    I am fairly new to making sourdough. I taught myself as a way to cope with the grief of losing my daughter. As a beginner I just used the basics to get started, things from Amazon, which at first did their job. Once I had the hang of making sourdough pretty successfully I thought that maybe I should just invest in some better quality tools. I purchased two bundles of the bread mats & wood pulp bannetons, complete game changer! The wood pulp bannetons made the surface of the dough so much easier to score and gave the loaves such a nice shape! The bread mats, now no more wasting parchment or reusing parchment. They are simply the best and give my loaves a nice evenly browned crispy bottom, no more uneven or burnt spots! Also the pattern it leaves on the underside of my loaves is my favorite, makes them look so professional. I highly recommend investing in Mike’s products at Rosehill Sourdough! Thank you!

  58. Emily Gavin (verified owner)

    I’ve been a sourdough baker for 8 years now but started selling professionally at markets, within the last year. I found myself constantly tweaking recipes and add ins to find the secret to making my rise really pop! These baskets did the trick! They keep my loaves uniform, dry and are so low maintenance. I originally bought 8 but i just bought 12 more and I’m hoping to slowly build a large collection to use them exclusively for my business. It was a big investment as a start up but it has made all the difference in my kitchen. I never want to go back to cheap plastic baskets from amazon. Do yourself a favor and invest in these from the start!

  59. Sam (verified owner)

    Love this banneton! it is so easy to maintain and keep clean, doesn’t give me the ick like the well seasoned lining on my other banneton, and the size is perfect for a pretty wide range of dough amounts. I also love the texture of the skin it leaves on the proofed dough, it is so dry and results in perfect loaves.

  60. Olivia Clementi (verified owner)

    I recently bought the RHSD proofing baskets and bread mats. It’s been a game changer for my bread! I absolutely love them. I’m so impressed with how well my dough keeps its shape. My loaves have such an even cook on the bottom now due to the bread mats. I will definitely be purchasing more.

  61. Tatyana (verified owner)

    I purchased baskets and mats and couldn’t be happier , These baskets are a miracle. I used to struggle with dough sticking on my previous baskets from Amazon, and never had this problem with these baskets. Totally worth the price. I’m going to buy second set for my daughter as a gift.

  62. Linda van Zuilekom (verified owner)

    I recently purchased 2 banettons and just used them yesterday – the care instructions are very clear and my dough released so easily from the baskets. Very happy with my purchase!
