Kneading gloves ???
I was looking at Fantes website and stumbled across a pair of kneading gloves, made of nylon. I never knew such a thing existed. Now I'm wondering if these gloves might be useful. I never considered using disposable gloves because I figured they would make kneading/mixing more difficult, not easier, and I don't really mind the dough stuck to my hands. I make all of my bread by hand, as I don't have a stand mixer. I actually have a harder time with the tendency to add too much flour when kneading/mixing the stiffer doughs than the more slack doughs. I'm wondering if the floured gloves would be useful---if not the nylon ones on Fantes website, maybe just some old-fashioned cotton gloves that have been floured?
I'm wondering whether using a fabric glove, with flour rubbed in well, would be like the teflon effect of a well used, flour encrusted couche? Would you use AP flour or rice flour on the gloves?
Another advantage would be transferring less heat from the hands to the dough, especially in the summer when the kitchen is warmer.
Has anyone tried this? Or have any opinions on how it might work?
