This is a traditional French style linen-lined wicker banneton, for artisan home baking. After shaping the bread dough, place upside down in the oval banneton or proving basket for its final rise.
Use a bread proving basket to help keep the bread's shape during proving. Also, because water is wicked away from the dough surface during the prove, the wicker banneton is thought to help develop a better crust. The porous linen lining prevents the dough from sticking to the wicker, and is removable and machine washable at a low temperature.
Just before baking, turn the loaf out of the banneton onto a floured or lined baking sheet. Slash the surface of the bread with a grignette or lame, to help the rise, and place straight into a hot oven to bake. Flour well before use, and give the linen time to dry between bakes.
