What is the bread leavening basket for?

The baskets for leavening bread are containers of various shapes and sizes useful for ensuring perfect leavening of the dough. Using the leavening basket the dough will rise upwards, maintaining the desired shape. Classic rattan leavening baskets with ribbed bottoms and walls, thanks to the warmth of wood and the breathable properties of natural fibres, allow the dough to breathe and absorb some of the moisture it contains. This ensures that the dough rises more gently and produces a crispy crust at the end of baking, usually with the classic spiral pattern on the surface.
