According to Maggie Glezer in her Artisan Breadbaking across America 
(p.10), the Della Fattoria bakery uses plastic tortilla chip baskets as 
bannetons. You can get them at restaurant supply stores. She says that the 
baskets are "just as nonstick and even easier to care for than the imported 
baskets." On the other hand, if you really want the imported baskets, why 
not get them? I'm in grad school now, so I use mixing bowls lined with 
heavy linen. But I wouldn't turn down the more expensive ones as a gift!
