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........




I leave mine under the sofa in the living room. I have an open floor plan, and the kitchen is right next to the living room, so it's just a few steps away!

Question:
Do you still roll out on wax or parchment paper? Or directly on the doboard. If on the doboard, doesn't the grease from the dough get into the wood?

You don't need wax or parchment paper, just a little bit of flour. If you don't have one and you make a lot of cookies I HIGHLY recommend it, you won't be sorry you bought it.

I showed this to hubby, he thought it was great! He said, "Send me a link." So I did. I won't hold my breath, but wouldn't it be great!

icon_surprised.gif I was intrigued to know what a Dobord was.
Wow - i have never seen one of these let alone heard of them.
What a brillante idea.... thumbs_up.gif

Will go back and see if one of the sites ship internationally.
Again i say - what a brillante idea.
The things i have seen and learnt since being here is just wonderful (costing me $$$$'s but wonderful all the same icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif )

Can someone tell me how exactly this works. Is it just one frame on a base that adjust heights or is it several different "frames" that are interchangable depending on what thickness you need? Hope that makes sense!

thanks so much

It is a large board that has removable side rails. You loosen the rail on one end so you can remove it, then adjust all the rails along slots/guides in the side of the board to get the depth you want. I hope that isn't too confusing!

Yes it's a piece of wood within a frame. The frame can be adjusted to four different depths from one eighth of an inch to a half inch I think it is.

"Under the sofa" sounds like an unusual place to keep food equipment.

But it works great! I kept the original packaging, so I slide it into the plastic sleeve, stick it back in the shallow box, and under the sofa it goes.

The only other place I've seen that carries the Doboard is Cake n' Crumbs http://www.cakencrumbs.com/productslist.asp?pid=39⊂=cookie%20accessories
I think with shipping it was a slightly better deal from Armchair World and that's where I ordered mine (it shipped fast). Still swear by that thing and it's the best thing to happen to my baking icon_smile.gif Andrea

Mine came for Cake n' Crumbs, too! I can't believe how much use I've gotten out of this one item! LOVE having it.

I have a couple of questions about this:

1) do you cut the cookies right on the board after you've rolled the dough out on it, or do you transfer the dough somewhere else before using the cookie cutters?

2) The cookie tutorial on here by Antonia74 recommends cutting the cookies on a silpat covered baking sheet and then chilling them in the freezer, and then popping the chilled cutouts and moving them to another silpat covered baking sheet to minimize distortion of the shape. How does using the Doboard fit in with that process, or do you do something else to keep from squishing and stretching the cookie shape as you move it around?

TIA

Sagebrush-
I use Penny's cookie recipe so I don't have to chill it. I'm going to buy the Dobard this week(after everyone said it was great) and I'll just take my cookies from the Dobord to the oven.
Hope this helps.

I have to make 600 cookies for my daughter's wedding favors so I'm hoping the Dobord will help me and my helpers out!

I adore my Dobord!! I roll out the cookie dough on parchment paper (with saran on top), then slip that onto a cookie sheet and into the fridge to chill. Then I take it out and cut the shapes--sometimes I have to re-chill before baking depending on how long it took me to cut the shapes--

hope that helps

Do any of you find the dobord to be small? It looks like that in the pic.

Lcubed82 Posted 7 Feb 2010 , 4:23am

I usually roll, cut, transfer.

Size is 15" square. Now, I haven't done 600 cookies! but the size works pretty well for me.

I've never heard of this either! I may need to get one ASAP!

My dh wants to make me one. Any suggestions? What type of wood would he use? Would it need any special treatment? How does it go together? Would it just be easier to buy it?

Thanks!
