Banneton Size (internal measurements) & Dough Capacity:

Cane Oval 750g: 22cm length x 14cm width x 8cm height (holds up to 7500g dough)


Additional Recommended Items:

Below are some additional items which you may already have around the house which are not included in our Basic Kit.

Our Basic Kits are just that - basic. They do not come with flour so you will be required to source your own. To achieve an active working starter, we recommend feeding your starter our White Gluten-Free Bread Flour & trying our recipe here.

  • Small jar with lid 

An old jam jar that has been cleaned is perfect or you could use one of our Starter Jars.

  • Kitchen scale

Useful for weighing all types of ingredients - flour, water, salt. See kitchen scale

  • Large mixing bowl

Preferably a thickish walled large mixing bowl, in the videos we have used a Pyrex 24cm/3L glass mixing bowl or similar. 
  • Cast iron Dutch oven
Our preferred method of baking bread is the Dutch oven method. This is the perfect vessel to create a hot & steamy environment so that your bread can rise & expand easily. For best results we recommend a bread specific pan like our Bread Pan Dutch oven. This is a game changer! 
  • Oven that can heat up to atleast 250 degrees Celsius

Ensure your oven is able to reach a high temperature required for baking bread.

Love Gluten Free Sourdough!

Purchased the basic gluten free sourdough starter kit and couldn't wait to get started! As I live in a very remote area I did have difficulty purchasing stock of gluten free bread flour, however I can now purchase from your lovely online store.
Have baked a couple of loaves without dutch oven (I'll be buying one now), they turned out just ok. I'll be placing a further order today for gluten free bread flour and a dutch oven :)
Very happy with the gluten free starter too.
Thank you
