Test results

1. It is possible to make brioche dough easily at home 

   by applying No Knead Dough Method(no kneader is needed)

   You do not need to use a lot of power for dough.

2. It is a very soft texture.

3. It is advisable to use a lodge combo cooker 

   for small sized home ovens.

4. Fermentation time is not absolute. 

   Time adjustment required according to room temperature

   (Because of winter shooting, room temperature is low,

   so the fermentation takes a long time)


* Note: Always be careful when using the oven

(It is very hot, so use it after wearing very thick oven gloves)
