Posts Tagged ‘proofing baskets’

On Friday morning, the Australian Tax department sent me a small tax refund for the last financial year.  That was a good thing.

On Friday afternoon, the lovely Melissa from Chefs’ Warehouse rang and said, “Celia, the bannetons are here.”  That was a very good and serendipitous thing!

So I drove into Surry Hills and happily handed over my refund in exchange for these gorgeous proofing baskets. If you’re a breadbaker in Sydney, race in as soon as possible – they have a wide range of sizes available, at about half the price I’ve seen them for anywhere else!

These 1kg round bannetons (not 500g as I originally thought!) were just $19.95 each (retail price, if you’re in the trade, there’s an extra 25% discount).  They’re imported from Europe and made from cane.  There were larger ones for a few dollars more, but this size is the closest to the plastic baskets I’m using at the moment.

The oval bannetons, 500g sized, were a tiny $18.95 each.  They’re sturdy and well assembled…

I was so excited with these that I had to show them to you straight away – I haven’t even had a chance to bake in them yet.  If you need any more information about sizes or pricing, do give Chef’s Warehouse a call – they really are the nicest people to deal with!
