Mixers, Ovens and Bread Slicers

January 23, 2009 - 7:32pm -- Gluten Free Pam

I'm starting a local bakery, and would be glad for anyone's input on equipment.  I'm making gluten free breads and cinnamon rolls.  My sweet great-niece was diagnosed with celiac disease just over a year ago and she missed having baked good so much that I had to do something about it.  After months of experiments (my dogs have gotten fat off the rejects) I've worked out some recipes.  The folks in the local celiac support groups want more of my stuff and local stores would like to carry my bread, so I'm taking the leap forward, but could use some opinions on equipment.

DLX Question

February 5, 2008 - 5:40pm -- ehanner

Hey all you DLX users, I just took delivery of a new DLX Assistant mixer which looks like it will be fun. I have read where the first thing to know is that the water goes in first and the flour as it becomes incorporated. I'm wondering about the roller position is a little confusing. The manual says fix the roller 1 inch away for a 2 loaf batch and 1.5 inches for 3 loaves and so on. Others seem to say leave it loose and let it ride the edge.
