rhsd Wood Pulp Proofing Baskets

Both sizes perfectly fit The BreadMat. YES, you can use an oval basket with a round BreadMat. It fits perfectly, because I designed it that way 🙌

I’m so excited to be the only person (that I know of) offering these sizes and shapes (750-1000g oval and 650-950 round) proofing baskets in the US.

I fell in love with wood pulp proofing baskets while living in the UK and I am pleased to be able to bring them back with me to the US.

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 two shapes of proofing basket, a round and an oval . My go-to size is an 875g oval, but hey, some prefer the round!

The oval basket is for loaves 750 – 1000g (875g sweet spot)
The round is for loaves 650 – 900g (750g sweet spot)
*I have had many bakers bake 500g loaves in both and love them!

These are the only basket I use in my baking.

These wood pulp proofing baskets are hand made in Germany, so slight fluctuations in color and size basket to basket are expected.

Since these are a food contact item, I cannot return opened proofing baskets.

    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.

    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!!!!

    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.

    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.

    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!
