Weekend Kitchen Gadget-Bread making

Yesterday I posted a recipe for Holiday Yeast rolls. I thought I would share the tools I used.
The Mixer: For years I had a Sunbeam mixer. Then a few years ago Hubby gifted me this one. I had always wanted a Kitchen Aid. Love this machine, it is a Professional 5 with a lift bowl.

A good Large metal bowl. This helps with the rising of the bread. Metal bowls can be purchase as a three piece set for under 20.00.

The Pastry Cloth. I like that you can wash them when needed. Do not use fabric softener in the wash. Nothing ever sticks to it. I use it to cover the rising bread and to knead it. You can get one for under 10 dollars.

The Stainless steel dough cutter. This tool make it easy to cut the amount of dough you need. Too much handling of the dough can cause it to be tough. It is usually sold for under 2 dollars. A good buy!

A Large Pizza Pan.

I purchased this some years back I believe it was in the 1990's. There was a Restaurant Supply Shop close to my parents. This pan was a Godfather Pizza Pizza Restaurant Pan. Measures 14" round, used for their 14" pizza pie. I can fit all the rolls in this one pan! I seldom make pizza in it but, maybe some day I'll try to make that famous Godfather Pizza-Chicago Style. I'm sure I have a recipe some where in my recipe pile.
I found a site that sales these types of pans,LLOYD.. They are priced under 30 dollars (the PSTK is the type I use).


  1. Stop by and visit my blog. I have something for you. Fondly, DCRose

  2. Oooh, I just found a thin crust pizza dough recipe with semolina flour that makes me covet that pan. I need to get to the restaurant supply store and get a large one.

    PS Love your blog! Found you through the Junk Drawer.

  3. Stopping by to let you know that I have an award for you at my blog. :)

  4. Would you believe I've never owned a mixer? Beaters yes, mixer no. Isn't it funny how each of us loves those gadgets we have but don't know what we're missing with the ones we don't? LOL

  5. I need to get to the restaurant supply store and get a large one.
