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!

  • Bosch vs Electrolux

    After using a bread machine to make tiny batches of dough, I am ready to purchase a REAL mixer. I was looking at the DLX when I happened across the Bosch. It looks really nice and is less money too. Anyone have an opinion? I am going back and forth between these two. I will be using it to make dough mostly for pizza with some bread on occasion.

    Re: Bosch vs Electrolux : Chose Bosch

    So, no need to reply to prior post. I talked with the company that sells both and decided to go with the Bosch. I can put the 180 dollars saved toward building my oven or other purchases.

    I will give my comments on the mixer once it arrives. Currently my experience is with large commercial planetary mixers and bread machines. I can hardly wait to make a larger batch and have a pizza party.

      They make a few - what flavor did you purchase?

          Whom did you buy from? I am in the same boat as you where and I spoke with a Pleasant Hill Grain Company.

            I purchased from them and so far am impressed. They answered all of my questions, shipped the way I prefer, and offered 'no pressure' suggestions. The lady that took my order has one and suggested the cookie paddles.

            I'm hoping that I have it Friday. I will let you know what I think once I have seen it and given it a try.

              Review of Bosch

              I got the Bosch Universal yesterday and made two 16 inch pizzas.

              After watching the short video on the machine, I started measuring out my ingredients. I did follow the one suggestion from the video which was to add the salt last.

              Basic procedure was to-
              Measure out dry ingredients
              Add measured water (and oil) to mixing bowl - I used 21oz water & 2TBL oil
              Turn mixer on to 1
              Spoon in dry ingredients
              Add the salt just before all the ingredients came together
              Run mixer 3 minutes on 1
              Turn mixer to 2 and ran another 3 minutes
              Pull dough and let rise

              I only waited an hour before making into pizzas- we were hungry

              I was very impressed with how well it mixed and how well it worked after rising. The dough had a wonderful feel when I was working it into my shells. AND the dough didn't come out of the bowl all overworked and sticky. Instead, I would describe the dough as warm and stretchy. In fact, I was tempted to toss the dough instead of rolling it out into pie shells. So, I mostly rolled out the dough with an occassional toss for fun.

              Wow! I can't wait to make another batch.
