Dough roller

Is there a mechanical dough flattener that I can buy for home use?

November 10, 2012 - 9:57am -- giyad

I've been baking a lot at home but I flatten my dough and so I use a regular wooden roller but I was wondering if there is something mechanical that I can use to speed things up and keep things consistent?  I tried a pasta machine but they are too small.

making rye bread in a DXL

April 22, 2009 - 9:24am -- caviar

I'm having trouble with my rye breads ion the DXL. The loaves seem fine but after putting themm on parchment paper they start to flatten out. I've been following George Greensteins recipes. The dough doesn't seem to be worked in the machine unless I move the scraper around and/or the roller or constaqntly push the dough off the hook. Should I go to folding the dough every 30 minutes to develope the gluten more? I'm thinking of putting some vital gluten in the mix. This may not have anythinbg to do with the mixer itself but the mixer himself.
