I'm looking to buy a banneton. My local cooking store didn't carry them. Any recommendations for online sources or stores in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area?
They have both German- and Slovakian-made cane brotforms and bannetons, both at prices rather less than I've seen most other places.
Just wondering. Not getting a stand mixer opens up about $350 for some other needed bread-related things.
Hi to everyone, thanks for the great site. Does anyone know a Canadian site or shop where I can order a banneton/brotform? I prefer a german one as I plan to use it forever.
I'm looking for bannetons/brotforms in Montreal. I feel like there should be a place that sells them because there's much bread in this city! :)
I've tried Ares, Quincallerie Dante, La Soupière and Les Touilleurs but to no avail.
Any suggestions/leads would be much appreciated!
I found a source for willow reed nearby that seems to be reasonably priced. The problem is that I need to know what size reeds to buy for bannetons. The source I found has reeds in the following sizes.
1.25mm, 1.5mm, 1.75mm, 2.25mm, 2.75mm, 3.5mm, and 4.5 mm round diamaters.
It appears that they sell the reeds in 1-lb coils for $4 plus shipping.
Also, should I make the bottoms with the coiled reed or use a plywood form for the bottom of the banneton? I already am aware that I should use stainless steel brads to hold the banneton together.
I have tried now twice to use this banneton to shape and rise my dough in. It is one without cloth, just wood.
I rose the dough once then put it into the banneton.
I used heavy flour but still both times the dough stuck.
Advise really needed!
Thanks in advanced
