I am so disappointed that I can't purchase the dobord.  I was really excited about it.

I know right??? I was sooo excited to finally get my dobord. Big let down. Let's see how the "new" Dobord is and hopefully it'll be available soon. I'm testing out the new rolling pin today on Valentine's Day cookies for my son's Vday party at school.

and--it is very heavy

 

not friendly to wrists and hands

 

unwieldy--

 

it is a really cool toy and i understand the disappointment

 

but that rolling pin does everything the db does

 

lighter and better

 

srsly

 

maybe soothe your disappointment by getting the $20 pin

 

and going wild spending the eighty bucks leftover on other cake toys

 

that's a cruel consolation prize ;)

Dobord is not hard to use. All you have to do is cut and fold a piece of parchment paper to fit the inner (lower) part of the board. Pull the paper under grooves on either end. Tape the end to the bottom - I use Gorilla Tape - pull through to the other side so it's taught and adjust so that the parchment lies smooth. Roll your cookies out between that and another piece of parchment. No extra flour, no mess and you don't have to fully wash the board every time you use it since it does not come in contact with dough. Because you don't use extra flour you can re-roll your dough without the worry of it becoming tough.

I am so excited.  I bought the newest version of the Joseph Joseph Rolling Pin at Macys yesterday.  This one has 4 different size rolling rings - 1/16, 1/6, 1/4 and 3/8.  The rings are a different color for each size.  There was a 15% off sale plus I had my 10% off coupon.  I got for $15.29 plus tax icon_biggrin.gif.  Thanks everyone who recommended it.  I will let you know how I like it when I make my cookies.

That's a great deal! My local Macy's home didn't carry it. It took a bit of getting used to since I'm used to a rolling pin with handles but it worked much better than my rolling pin with rubber rings. Good luck!

wow .......I would  not pay 95.00 for a dough board. I have one and it was only 59.99 @ http://www.kitchengifts.com/ years ago .

That's where I had ordered mine, but at the time it was $75.00.  It is the greatest ever.  I had to make over 600 cookies for my daughter's wedding and I couldn't have done it without the Dobord (I made her the little "cookie cakes". 

 

The delivery was very fast.  I was very happy with them.  I also use it for pie crusts.  I love the Dobord - just wish it was a little bigger!

 

Hope this helps.

I never would have thought about square dowels! I've been using round ones without any problem. I guess its cause we used it when I taught Wilton so I got used to them rolling around when I wasn't using them. I don't know how many times I've watched them roll off the counter after I rolled out some cookies. 

 

Thanks for the idea!!!
