Let your home-baked artisan breads rise in a broftorm (banneton in French) proofing basket and harness the wisdom of centuries past. This basket yields a better rise, a crunchy ribbed crust, and superior texture. Easy to use: simply flour the brotform and place kneaded dough in the basket for the final rise. Transfer the loaf onto a baking sheet to bake. Use it with your bread machine, too: let the machine knead the dough, then rise in the brotform. Made of natural cane; can also be used as a serving basket.
