Affordable brotform/bread rising basket
- free sample addict aka Tracy L Jan 14, 2014 08:55 PM
I am meeting up with a friend on his boat in Mexico. He misses good bread and the last time I visited we made bread together. I'd like to bring a bread rising basket/brotform. I am bringing some other goodies as well so I need to keep within a budget. Most baskets I have seen are $30+ I was wondering if there any sources for affordable brotforms?
Try eBay. Besides brotform/bread rising basket, also search under banneton. I bought 2 of the that way. They came with linen liners and shipping was free. There is a wide variety to choose from and prices were about 1/3 of Sur Le Table's prices. The only downside is almost all of the ones on eBay are made in and shipped from China. So it takes 2-3 weeks to get them delivered.
re: Sam D.
On your rec, I found the Chinese seller on eBay. It lists these various bannetons in several different ways (auction, no reserve auction, buy-it-now). I must've hit a "no reserve" auction on a slow day, because I won a 9" round with liner for $7.61 with *free shipping* from China.
We'll see how the quality compares.
