Tools & Equipment
Lodge 6-Quart Ceramic Coated Cast Iron Dutch Oven
Highly recommended when baking free-form loaves to keep them from drying out and getting too crusty at high baking temps. Comes in red, green, orange, and purple, too!
Alternatives: a covered clay baker (cloche) or a 5-quart or larger well-seasoned cast iron Dutch Oven.
8-Cup Stainless Steel Flour Sifter
Want to make your own sifted, all-purpose flour? This 8-cup sifter is large capacity and easy to use!
Alternatives: use a fine sieve or perhaps your mixer has a sifter attachment.
Banneton Dough Proofing Baskets
Helpful for proofing/rising artisan free-form loaves. Dust well with flour before using; gets better with each use.
Alternative: Linen couche in a colander.
Linen Couche Proofing Cloth
Flax seed linen proofing cloth especially suited for einkorn as it absorbs excess water without becoming a gummy mess. Use with well floured dough. Line a colander and place your dough inside to mimic a proofing basket.
Alternative: Banneton Dough Proofing Basket.
Vitamix (High-Powered Blender)
Mill your own flour (though not as finely as a mill) and crack grains for porridge.
Alternatives: a stand-alone mill or grain cracker, or another high-powered blender such as Blendtec.
Excalibur 9-Tray Dehydrator
Want to make your own sprouted einkorn flour? Then you'll need a dehydrator to dry the spouted berries.
Alternative: a low temp oven (200 degrees F or lower).
My Weigh KD7000 (Kitchen Scale)
(Optional) You'll get more consistent results if you use weights rather than volumes in your bread recipes, and a quality scale helps you do that. This is the one we chose; we love the advanced features like “hold” and “batch scaling”.
Alternative: use volume measurements.
Danish Dough Whisk
My favorite whisk! Allows you to stir thicker batters and doughs than a normal whisk, due to the decreased resistance.
Alternative: use a wooden spoon.
Fun! Make wavy cuts for your crackers and pastas.
Alternative: use a pizza cutter (straight cut).
Pastry and Pizza Roller
You can roll out crackers, pastry dough, and pizza crust right in the pan without worrying about your rolling pin not fitting.
Alternative: use a rolling pin (however, your pan might get in the way).
1/2 Gallon Mason Jars
Use with sprout screens to sprout einkorn berries (or other grains/beans).
Alternatives: use quart jars or mixing bowls.
Fits under the metal band to instantly convert wide-mouth mason jars into sprouting jars! I advise getting at least 3.
Alternative: use your hand when draining/rinsing jars of sprouts.
