Silestone for bread counter?

September 23, 2008 - 9:12am -- Loafer

Does anyone else out there have Silestone counters that you use when prepping your bread?  Have you encountered any issues cleaning the counter? Or issues with any kind of scratching or marring from you dough blade or other tools?  The company says that the counters are entirely food safe, and I suppose I believe that, but I'd also like to be sure I won't damage the counters before kneading a huge batch of bread, or rolling out some pie dough directly on the countertop.

Starter Containers

March 20, 2007 - 12:02pm -- Loafer

So, I have had starters going off and on, and have made a lot of mistakes (including saltless loaves.. yuck!) but I have a simple question that I bet gets lots of answers: What kind of container do you use for your starter? What size? What materials? Detailed answers please ;)
