I'm planning on spending my Christmas money on a Dobord (woo hoo!), and was hoping to get some input on the best place to buy one. No one in town seems to carry them, so it means going on-line. I'd love to hear from anyone who can point me in the right direction.

Cake n' Crumbs sells these, I really want one of these too but they are so expensive.

Here is their website, it tells you places you can purchase it.

Thin4life...what a great site recommendation I can't believe it's only $61!! I paid $80 for mine! Gemini...you should jump on that one. I've had one for two years now and have to say I love it so much I'd pay $200 for it if I had to!! The site did say you can also use it as a cutting board but I would never, ever, ever use it for that. Treat it well and it should last forever. They're built really well. Good luck and have fun with it!!

Ditto from me as well on the site recommendation thin4life! They have some neat stuff.
Is it too early to break my New Year's resolution of showing some restraint when it comes to cookie cutters/gadgets? I think I am going to have to try to find some support group-like cookie cutters anonymous!

I did not know what the Dobord was so I looked up the website. I never saw it before but i kind of had the same idea, I went to TAP plastics and had them cut up 3 different thicknesses on food grade plastic in the shape of a picture frame, it is really handy I just place it on my silicone mat, place the dough in the middle and roll it out. I found it easier to use than the dowels or the pastry sticks. Make sure if you have them made up that your rolling pin fits on it. I think mine is about 9 inches and the frame itself is 1.5 inches wide. They are easy to clean, I have had mine for about 6 months, I have also stacked and double sided taped two together for thicker dough.

Does anyone have a business or tax id#? You can order from them directly, if you do but the minimum is 6. But you would get them at wholesale. I am sure you could get 5 other people to take one, I would for sure.

This is great ! I had never heard of it either. I am bookmarking the site for future reference. Thanks. thumbs_up.gif

Wonderful! It was mentioned on another post that SurLaTable carried the Dobord, but that wasn't the case for the store in Omaha. I saw the CakenCrumbs site and noticed the great price, but was wondering if anyone had any experience ordering from this company.

I'm pretty sure I got mine from Armchair World. I only bought one so there must not be a minimum with them. Still can't believe the price!

GeminiRJ Posted 9 Jan 2009 , 1:36pm

I just finished ordering from Cake 'n Crumbs. It came to $71.03 after shipping and handling. Now the hard part...waiting for it to show up!

GeminiRJ Posted 19 Jan 2009 , 1:03pm

The Dobord showed up one week after ordering, and I used it for the first time this weekend. (See the Valentine Flamingo cookie I posted). I hadn't realized how much quicker it would be to roll the dough out...no fussing over whether the thickness was "right". I look forward to using this tool over and over!

-K8memphis Posted 19 Jan 2009 , 1:14pm

It's an awesome tool. I love mine. I use it for fondant and gumpaste too.

thin4life Posted 19 Jan 2009 , 5:26pm

You guys have sold me, I have to have one of these now!

andpotts Posted 25 Jan 2009 , 7:13am

I just had to come and say thanks for the info on where to get a doboard for less, I have wanted one for a long time, but have recently really delved into decorated cookies and after reading this post, it put me over the top and I just HAD to order one! I am so excited and can't wait for my new toy, my hubby is going to revoke my CC privledges, you guys always get me all excited about stuff but i must say I haven't been dissapointed yet thumbs_up.gif

thin4life Posted 25 Jan 2009 , 5:33pm

I ordered one from Cake n' Crumbs and my total was also $71.03. If anyone else orders from this company please choose Kendra Arch as your instructor. I have met her along with the owner of this company and they are both very nice people. They are trying to grow this company so any business you can throw their way would be great. Thank you.

adunfag Posted 25 Jan 2009 , 5:46pm

I want one too...I have an order coming up for 3 dozen cookies, I think I'll use that money to get mine. I'm so EXCITED! Thanks for the site and info ladies.

andpotts Posted 25 Jan 2009 , 10:50pm

I ordered from Armchair World Company Store, it was a few bucks less, but mostly because they take Paypal and I had a credit in my account to use up. Mine was $59.50 / $70.25 after shipping. It is expensive, but I've rolled out so much cookie dough over the last few weeks having something to make the entire process easier I am all over it!! I can't wait!

lilacc01 Posted 28 Jan 2009 , 12:55am

I roll out my dough between two long dowel rods to get uniform thickness. Is this really that much better?!!?

Yes it is, I used to do that and I think it is a pain in the butt! This works much better.

It really is. I'd a never thought it but it's awesome. It's one of those cake toys you really don't ever have to have (like a turntable) but boy oh boy when you get it you wonder how you ever made it though life without it.

GeminiRJ Posted 28 Jan 2009 , 12:36pm

Even using rolling pin rings, I never got really perfect dough thickness. With the DoughBord, I do! And I hadn't realized how much time it would save me, since I wasn't constantly fussing with trying to make sure it was evenly rolled. I can also roll out a larger amount of dough at a time, as the roller is quite a bit bigger than my old one. LOVE my DoughBord!

lilacc01 Posted 28 Jan 2009 , 4:15pm

Sold! Thanks ladies! icon_smile.gif

toleshed Posted 28 Jan 2009 , 7:22pm

oh boy - another new toy - I just can't wait. I hate those darn dowels.

tripleD Posted 28 Jan 2009 , 7:35pm

OH, I agree with Toleshed " another toy" Whoo Hoo!!
I going to have to build on to my kitchen or the dining room is looking good for storage shelfs who needs that dining room table. hahhaha
(I have already converted the utility room into a cake room for supplies.)

my husband just cringes when the UPS truck pulls in..

thin4life Posted 8 Feb 2009 , 9:34pm

I got mine the other day and it works like a charm. I absolutely love it and highly recommend it to all cookie makers!!!

I could not agree more, got mine last week and spent all weekend making Valentine's cookies. I LOVE my doboard and can't believe how simple it makes the whole process. All of my friends want their own now too! It is wonderful.

GeminiRJ Posted 10 Feb 2009 , 12:50pm

I'll be making about 200 cookies for my niece's wedding in the fall, and I'm actually not dreading the baking process anymore! My sister and niece want to help, so I think having the Dobord will make it a whole lot easier for them to do that. So easy, even a novice can make perfectly even cookies!

CakeDiane Posted 10 Feb 2009 , 1:14pm

I have never heard of a Dobord before today--thanks for sharing all the info about it!!!! thumbs_up.gif

nickshalfpint Posted 26 Feb 2009 , 10:31pm

I just bought mine from Armchair World Company Store. The woman I spoke to (Lisa) was the nicest person I've spoken to in along time! She was very helpful!!! I can't wait to get it. It should be here tomorrow or the next day! Here is the link:

I got mine several months ago and I love it to death. I will now make decorated cookies for no reason at all, because it's really no trouble......as opposed to before, when I had to have some motivation to want to go through the hassle of dealing with the dough. I have used it for all manner of dough projects in addition to cookies too. And the clean up is a breeze. Love that thing! Now if I only had cupboard big enough to store it in........
