MADE IN SOUTH AFRICA.  We are taking orders with a production delay of approx 10 working days.

In partnership with a leading design duo, we are now making bannetons locally. This part of a community project to create jobs. 

Instead of most of the money spent on imported bannetons leaving the country and being spent on courier fees, purchasing locally made bannetons keeps the money in the South African economy creating a real economic benefit at a community level. 
The bannetons are made by hand from sustainably sourced unbleached cane which is more dense than the cane used on the Chinese imports. This makes the baskets more durable (but a little more challenging to make). 

Our bannetons are available in 5 variations with a liner as an option. Medium are suitable for up to 750g dough, large 1,5kg and the special "ciabatta" shape up to 500g. 

Cane is by far the best performing material for a proving basket. Dough will not stick to a seasoned basket and the basket can also be dried in a 70 deg C oven to sterilise it. 

Thank you for choosing to support locally made.

Thanks to amazing customer support We are moving to a new production facility and daily production in mid-Feb. This will improve our lead times dramatically and bannetons will soon be a standard "in stock" item.

Very happy with these locally produced bannetons, well made and strong. Also loving my Danish Whisk, makes mixing so much easier!

Banneton Purchase

We had exceptionally good service. One of the baskets was damaged and was replaced without hesitation.

Proving Basket

Very good, communicated thoroughly re delivery. I have tried my proofing for the very first time today, and is happy with the results. I have already recommended it to two other sourdough baker-friends. I was wondering though whether one could buy directly from the shop in Woodstock?
