My new toy!
« on: September 28, 2014, 08:08:23 PM »
Er, I mean mixing bowl.
This, I am told, is a Hungarian dough mixing bowl. Hand made and this one is water tight.
Found it at an antique fair in Petaluma.  I have seen really big ones before but they were over sized for my small batches of dough.  This one is perfect size for me.
So it's hand mixed,  hand kneading for a while.
I love new toys!

That's a great mixing bowl, Mark.  I love getting new toys for the kitchen.  It's a beauty!  Enjoy it  ;)

Can you provide the dimensions and the size dough ball you can make?  It seems that most people use these bowls only as decorations.

Thanks

I have been making one DB at about 350-375 grams. In the pic is one DB. This is my 1st mix in this bowl.
I see no reason to not use the bowl. I have enough decorations. The size of this bowl is the smallest I have seen. Most are as big as a small bath tub.

That's a cool bowl. Is it heavy so it does not move around easily while making dough? Looks like it would be solid and stable! Nice find, Mark!
Cheers,
Don
Few great accomplishments are achieved single-handedly, Most have their Norgays.

You start with the people with the funny names.

relatively heavy, yes. I put a towel on the island and a towel on either side of the bowl. Stable!
