The right proofing basket for every bread
No country in the world has a larger bread variety than Germany – and there is no other place where people appreciate bread more. Traditional artisan bakeries and large scale manufacturers provide their customers Germany-wide with the no. 1 staple food. Shape, colour and recipes of the delicious product vary from region to region. In the North, they eat more dark bread, in the South, they prefer white bread. However, there is one thing most bread types have in common: their shape is given by a proofing basket. Traditional rattan proofing baskets support the dough while fermentation and let it breathe so the baked bread can develop its full flavour.
