A few questions about brotforms.
Hey all! I'm starting to get even more serious into baking, so I wanted to stock up on equipment. I found this good deal on Brotforms here and I think I'm gonna buy some. here Would you say a 9in is good a 2 pound loaf?
I hear everywhere that Brotform and Banneton are interchangeable, but the first thing I read said that the German ones with the coiled design are called Brotforms, and linen lined baskets are the French equivalent and called Bannetons. Is this the case? Or are they basically interchangeable?
Also, let's say I always bake two loaves of bread, so have two coiled Brotforms for both and linen liners for each one, if I lined each Brotform up with the liner and proofed it like that, would it have the same effect as using a wicker basket with liners?
If it has the same effect, I will probably get the two Brotform with the liners and then I can choose whether I want the design or not depending on the day. If I want to bake more than two loaves at a time, I will buy a few wicker baskets to use alongside my Brotforms.
Also, so I can use the word right, is the plural for Brotform just Brotform, or is it Brotforms? Same question for the word Banneton.
