Yes, I have one and I love it. I make quite a few cut-out cookies, and it works really slick. I roll out the dough between 2 sheets of parchment, so you hardly even have to clean it. I got one for my mother-in-law for christmas, and she really likes it too. To tell you the truth, I had ZERO experience in making cookies before I got it, and was scared I'd never be able to get the dough the same thickness throughout. So, I have never made cookies without it......I don't know if I could!

DH brought me home some molding from the lumber yard - I think they're called firring strips or lattice. I asked him for 1/2" thick. I roll the dough out on parchment using the molding - rolls perfectly every time and much much cheaper than a dobord!

Just goes to show you don't need fancy gadgets. I use cookie sticks or dowel rods to gauge the thickness of my cookies. A nice simple cheap solution.

I bought some of the square dowel rods at the hardware store, and they work very well! I just lay one on each side of the dough (between sheets of parchment) and use them as a guide for the rolling pin. They come in several different thicknesses (I use the 1/4 inch the most), and the square ones are nice because they don't roll away! icon_wink.gif

Wow, you guys have some good alternative ideas to the dobord! I love my dobord and wouldn't give it up, but those sticks would be great to roll out bigger sheets of dough or fondant evenly.... Plus, storing sticks would take up less space too! Good job people!

I cannot seem to find anyone that has the dobord in stock. I wonder if they have discontinued this icon_cry.gif

Can someone post a pic of one? Thanks

I just received my dobord today! I am so excited! I ordered it last week from www.armchair.com They are a company out of Los Angeles, CA.

If you have husbands that are handy it is just boards with a lip frame around it and they could make it cheaper than buying one. I think the dowels work the same for a great deal of savings.

You can get the dobord at www.kitchengifts.com. It's in backorder until April. I currently use the rubberbands around my rolling pin, the work great. I purchased them at my local restaurant supplier but I'm such a gadget collector I might just buy it. icon_redface.gif

Check out kitchengifts.com. They carry them. Vicki0052

I bought square dowel rods at Home Depot in different thicknesses. I roll out my dough between two sheets of parchment paper. It works great. MUCH cheaper too!
