Default Dough storage trays

I think it is time for us to start selling dough storage trays through the FB Store. I want a couple, so my thinking is that if I want them, then other people will as well.

Here is my question.

Do you think a 24"x16"x3" is a good size? Will it fit in your refrigerator? You can stack them two ways: sideways to allow airflow, which will slow fermentation in the refrigerator, and directly on top of each other, which closes out air and dust.

What do you think? That size is designed for restaurants and it might be too big for home use -- but, I'm having trouble finding smaller proofing boxes.

Whadya think?
James

24 inches wide may be too large for most home refriderators

That's what I was thinking. I won't fit in my side-by-side.

Does anyone have a good lead on a home cooking size tray?

Does the supplier of that size accept orders for a "residential" size?

What is the ideal temp. for dough retardation (sp?). We use the fridge, because that's what's available. Assuming the typical refridgerator is 40-42 degrees, is this ideal, or would warmer or colder be better.

I have fairly sizable, temperature controlled wine cellar that could easily accomodate large trays of dough, but always assumed it was not cool enough (perhaps incorrectly).

Thumbs up Re: Dough storage trays

I would be interested in several trays measuring around 15" x 12" x 3"deep.
I also have a side by side and plan on a smaller fridge in the outdoor kitchen, so smaller would be preferred. I tend to cut my dough into smaller balls to make 10" pizzas so each tray could comfortably hold up to 20 balls if they rise to 3 x 3 x 3" or 12 if needing 4 x4 x3" to rest/proof.
This size would still stack both ways and suit more people with smaller requirements.
How many pizzas do people need or would normally mix/proof per session anyway.
I have been looking out for similar containers, found nothing ideally suited and are currently using the wife's Tupperware.

I use these square plastic craft boxes from hobby lobby.

They are about 3 inches high and are square with about 15 inch sides. They fit perfect in the fridge, they have tight fitting lids, and they stack well.

I have a side by side as well, this size wouldn't work. I most certainly will buy them if you can find a smaller size

Not sure where you found your source James. I've been slow in buying one. I was planning on checking the KA flour website.

I must be wrong about the size, because they fit in my side by side.
I will measure them tonight, and take a picture this weekend.

How's the weather in Tampa?
