Product Description

Oblong Brotform Proofing Basket

OblongBrotformandClocheMade of natural cane that’s hand woven following a century old tradition. Made in the same style as the round coiled proofing basket. This one is ideal for forming loaves intended for baking in the oblong La Cloche. It will hold the desired shape of the dough during rising and make it easier to turn the risen dough into your cloche or other hot baking surface for baking.

This basket is exceptionally well made in Europe of the highest quality natural materials.

Dust the basket with flour and the risen dough drops easily onto your baking surface. For proofing very wet doughs, as called for with the popular no knead bread recipes, for example, the optional cloth liner (see below) is the simplest solution. Working flour (rice flour is particularly effective) into the cloth liner will release wet dough.

Cleaning the Brotform is usually just a matter of tapping it on the edge of your kitchen sink. If necessary, rinse it out with hot water with your faucet in spray mode. Shake off excess water and place upside down over still warm oven to dry quickly. Don’t use soap.

    I purchased two of these from Breadtppia many years ago and they are as good as new after hundreds of risen loaves. In fact, they are better than new because they are seasoned and more sturdy than new. I lightly spray mine with non-stick spray and then use semolina flour to allow for a perfect release into the clay baker. Afterwards I run them under hot tap water and use a toothbrush to loosen the semolina. After that they drip dry and are ready for next time. When I first purchased them I remember wondering if they would hold up after dozens of uses, and I can now say yes indeed they do! These oblong baskets are a very nice product that I would rate as 10-stars if I had the option!

    Thank you Eric for carrying such a top quality product. I’m a huge fan!

    Perfect! I am *thrilled* with the two oblong proofing baskets I recently purchased. They are a great size — big enough, but not huge. I also ordered the oblong covered baker, and the Brod and Taylor proofing box, and the baskets work perfectly with both those items (yes, two baskets neatly fit into the proofing box). I did not get the liners, as I personally like the look of the floury stripes on my bread, and have not had any trouble with dough sticking, even with high hydration loaves. Just make sure the baskets are well floured. A great purchase!

    Perfect La Cloche Companion – After watching the video here, I purchased one. Finally!! … a way to proof my dough AND smoothly transfer it to my long La Cloche baker! Shipping was lightening fast and packaging was excellent! I received exactly what I anticipated!
