    A dedicated bread mixing container

    It is a great container to mix your dough in. I like that it is almost clear and you can see your dough from all angles.

    These buckets are fantastic. I am so happy I got them. I did shop around but nothing seemed to be as useful. I was right.

    Proofing bucket and lid

    I ordered the 2L and 4L size. They are so much easier to clean after making my pain au belle. It’s going to be so much easier to judge when the dough doubles in size when I am making focaccia.

    This container size - 2qt- has so many uses. The quality is very durable. I am tempted to purchase the other two sizes

    Perfect Size!

    Posted by Kelly Love on 8th Aug 2021

    This bucket is exactly what I needed to help me keep a closer eye on my proof! The perfect shape makes it easy to clean and the dry erase section on the lid helps me track my timing through all the steps for my bread :).

    Proofing bucket

    Posted by Rosanne Lowes on 28th May 2021

    I am in my first year in my Sourdough journey and decided to celebrate my anniversary with the purchase of proofing buckets instead of making do. How I have gone this long without them is mind boggling! I need to buy more!!

    I love these buckets for making bread. The lids don’t pop off and you can see the dough development.

    Perfect size for most recipes. I have a smaller bucket for single loaf and a larger bucket for multiple loaves. This size is just what I was missing
