I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    Spiral mixer are great (the bowl rotates as well)

    what sort of amount of dough are you likely to want to make?

    it seem am awkward size too small for commercial and too big for domestic.

      there is nothing wrong with the Chinese commercial mixers, I have one 10l and another bigger Hobart 20l mixers.
      It all depends on how much dough you want to mix, the most I have made in a single mix was for 60 odd pizzas, 5Kg flour with a 63% hydration.
      Either mixer handles this quantity with ease.
      I am sure that the smaller chinese units would be imported into the States at a much more competitive rate than the Hobart range.
      There are numerous threads that feature commercial mixers and mine is included with pictures.

      I just noticed a new name to add to my ever growing list of Aussies and especially those from Adelaide. Welcome to this forum.
      Where abouts in this fine city do you reside?

          I just bought a mixer myself. Two things were important, cost was one and availability to get parts or repairs if anything went wrong. I could not find parts or repair shops for the China models. So I steered clear of them even though the the cost was low. I ended up getting a great deal on a used Univex. Some thoughts you may want to consider.

            Thanks for the feedback , I find parts for all appliances hard to get , I have 2 old Gaggia espresso machines just for parts to keep the one going.
            I make bread every week for the last 8 years , usually 5-6 loaves, half of the time no recipe.. other than start out with 5 cups water . so I don't know what the flour weighs.. this amount I find fills my 10l stock pot when risen , so I need at least a 5l mixer and the 10l seemed to give me room to grow and possibly not overwork the machine.

              I always search for parts before I buy any machine. Univex is made in the USA and I have a full parts list with diagrams. If I can find parts just on a Google search then I don't need to have spare machines for parts. Just my thoughts
