Questions about bannetons.
I am going to be buying some bannetons, both round and oval. My questions are these:
As to size, they can be had anywhere from 6” to a huge 17”. Is my reasoning correct, that I can put smaller loaves in a large basket, and just not fill it, but I can’t stuff a large loaf in a small basket. So, my best bet would be to order, say, a 10.5“ basket rather than a 8” or 9” one? Money being, well, money, my goal is to NOT have the world’s largest banneton collection. :)
As to the liners ... when do you use the liner and when do you use the basket alone, dusted with flour?
Thanks for your help.
