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.


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

    I thought these would be for a 600 gram loaf. But I find they are best for a somewhat larger 800-900 gram loaf. They are lovely with a nice full oven spring.

    The shape makes it difficult to know just where to score. Other than that, I like them.

  3. Diane s (verified owner)

    I love the size and the smooth finish. No need for a liner. I’ll be buying more

    I bought a round proofing basket after a friend recommended it. It took a few weeks to commit to buying as there are so many less expensive options out there. This basket is worth every penny. It’s literally been a game changer in the quality and consistency of bread I’ve been able to make. We just bought 2 more. They’re amazing!

    Love the baskets. Bought one each of the oval and round. They don’t stick to the dough at all and they keep the outside somewhat dry which is a plus
