A gift for the seasoned bread baker, using an Eddington's banneton will help you get a crispier loaf with a deliciously crunchy crust. The banneton baskets are made of natural cane and work by creating a slightly humid micro-climate between the dough and the banneton during proofing. As the dough dries it creates a skin, and this is what makes a superb crust on artisan bread.
