Bannetons (Proving Baskets)
Our proving baskets and liners are proudly made in South Africa.
We also have a nifty new basket cleaning brush, the ideal tool for keeping your baskets in top condition. See the brush click here.
Available in 5 variations with a liner as an option. Medium are suitable for up to 750g dough, large 1,2kg 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.
Round medium (22X8cm) + liner option
Rectangle medium (25X13X7cm) + liner option
Round large (26X10cm) + liner option
Rectangle large (30X13X8cm) + liner option
Ciabatta (30X13X4) - no liner
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).
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.
Thank you for choosing to support locally made.

After the challenges in KZN in July we have been able to get our supply back on track and whilst there is a short lead time currently, we expect a normal "in stock" supply from September onwards.
Work perfectly, very happy with the purchase. Bannetons have made proving even easier
The prices are right. The quality (of everything) is right. The service is VERY right. And in my closing argument I can only say: THANK YOU Motherdough!! :-)
Very happy with mine. I would recommend getting the lining with your basket. Easy to clean too!
