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 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 is 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.
