Bread Serving Basket
Perfect size every time. A proofing basket holds the dough in place and gives bread the right height when it rises – and gives the loaf a nice pattern when it’s done. After all, we also eat with our eyes.
Before using your proofing basket for the first time, it should be treated as follows: Moisten the proofing basket with water. Sprinkle flour over the basket. Tip and gently shake out excess flour and allow the proofing basket to dry.
Place the dough in the proofing basket and cover it with the included cloth. Once the dough has risen, place the bread on a baking tray and put it in the oven.
Dust the proofing basket with flour before each use, make sure the flour covers all surfaces and gets in all grooves. Tip and gently shake out excess flour.
The first times you use the proofing basket, you may need to use extra flour to prevent the dough from sticking. It can take up to three uses before the proofing basket works optimally.
