NATURAL FIBRE BANNETON "BREAD PROVING BOWL"
ALL SIZES CURRENTLY NOW ON PRE-ORDER DUE TO HIGH DEMAND. EXPECTED MID OCTOBER THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
High quality German Banneton made from natural conifer wood fibre. Ideal for making organic bread as only natural materials are used to make these bowls (fibre, water, pressure).
You use bannetons to prove & shape loaves of bread. The Banneton supports & holds the shape of the loaf as it rises. An imprinted pattern on the inside of the bowl puts a pattern on the outside of the loaf.
Features of natural fibre Bannetons ...
The dough does not stick to the bowl as it can/and does with cane bannetons
The bowls have thick walls with superb insulation properties - bread will prove (rise) faster
Better moisture absorption by the bowl (giving it back to the dough as needed) improves dough proving
Easy to clean, use a small hard brush to brush out surplus flour
For ecological reasons this material should be favoured over cane.
The bowls will hold a wet dough loaf of 500g, 750g, 1000g, depending on the banneton size (see photos).
You are purchasing ONE Banneton of your choice from the selection available, as shown. Please write in order notes which size you would like.
Full instructions along with a sachet of NZ organic Diastatic Malt powder (a natural dough enhancing additive for superior crust colour, flavour, nutrition). Also a sachet of organic brown rice/wholemeal flour to season your banneton with.
