New bannetons from ebay - do I clean???
Just picked up some banneton's from ebay for around $13.00/piece!
I would like to clean them before using. I'm thinking of using only water, and then throwing them in a 150 - 200 degree oven to dry.
My other thought is just to flour the inside, and if there is bacteria/germs, at 450+ degrees, anything harmful should be killed anyway.
Thoughts? Should I use soap & water?
