Dough Mixer - Omcan/Globe - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Dough Mixer - Omcan/Globe

    Has anyone had any experience with either the Omcan or Globe mixers? I am looking at the 20QT and see that the Omcan claims 1.5 HP whereas the Globe 0.5 HP. But the Omcan is advertised in some places as not suitable for heavy doughs. Go figure since it is rated 1 HP higher than other machines in it's class.

    THey run 1500 to 2,000 Canadian. Pretty steep. Just want to make sure I do the right thing.

    I work with a 20q globe mixer at my mom's house. When she was in pastry school (her 3rd major career, graduated last year and studied under the current reigning national pastry champions), all the students rushed to get the Globes each day, because they were the "good" ones and everyone's favorites. My mom liked it so much she decided she had to have one for home, too.

    I haven't tried it for bread doughs, but we make 100+ gingerbread houses each year, and the dough is very stiff, at least as stiff as a bread dough. Probably a lot more stiff than a very wet bread dough. The Globe performs magnificently. I'm completely in love. The self-timer is especially nice: you can set it to beat for a certain number of minutes and it turns itself off at the end.

    No experience with Omcan.

      The globe looks kind of Hobart-like:


      Not a cheap piece of equipment. They don't show voltage/phase info on the motor: where is it made?
