Couronne Bannetons?

Anyone know of a good source in North America for couronne bannetons (or any vendor that has a nice selection of affordable couronne bannettons)?


SFBI doesn't seem to carry them.



I can get them from this French vendor, but the prices are steep and the shipping exorbitant.

This thread has a good tutorial for a make-shift one (and it's what I've been using), but I'd like to buy a few real ones.

Excellent products and variety.

Thanks, but I only see 1 brotform couronne.


There are no linen-lined banneton couronnes.


Or am I just not seeing them?

You can make your own or you can visit TMB, SFBI's supplier, which sells them.

I want to buy professionally-made ones, preferably large ones like are available at the French site I link to above.


TMB/SFBI doesn't sell them. I mentioned that too.


Thanks, though.

I just make my own by putting--and taping in place--a small bowl open side down in a really big bowl.  I drape the whole think with linen.  Works wonderfully.

That's what I do too, but it's time to get a few dedicated ones.


I also want one of the really huge ones (24" across). 


Then I can make bread hats like Mexican sombreros. :D
