DoughXpress: DM-18 Manual Pizza Dough Press - 18-inch

DoughXpress: DM-18 Manual Pizza Dough Press - 18-inch

The DM-18 is a clamshell manual pizza dough press, perfect for low to medium production volumes and any budget. It is a fast, safe, simple, mess free alternative to hand tossing or sheeting your dough. The DM-18 has upper platen heat with a temperature maximum of 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Heat aids in dough flow, allows dough to be pressed straight from a refrigeration unit and helps keep dough from shrinking back or sticking to the upper platen. The dough press is an easy and affordable way to improve your production time as well as your finished product. A press keeps the air in the press versus sheeting dough where the air is forced out. It creates a product that with a consistent thickness versus hand-tossed where thicknesses can vary. The DM-18 has 18 inch round platens that allow for finished crusts up to 18 inches. The DM-18 is easy to use and requires no skilled labor unlike hand tossing. Set your temperature and press time. Recommended temperature for warm dough is 110 degrees Fahrenheit, and cold dough is 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Recommended time for warm dough is 2 to 4 seconds, and cold dough is 4 to 8 seconds. Set your thickness with the adjustment knob at the back of the press. The weight of the dough ball and the thickness setting will determine the size of the finished press. Place your pre-formed dough ball on the lower platen, pull down the handle until it locks into position, the timer will count down and the alert will sound when set time has elapsed. Release the handle. Remove your crust from the platen and place on screen, disc or pan. The top of the crust on the press becomes the bottom. Now you are ready for makeup and baking. The DM-18 is made in the USA and ships UPS in the continental US.

    from TOMMY'S Posted on

    This is an utter disappointment, invested so much in it and it does not speed up the work process at all, instead slows it down; We expected something that would make our daily operations easier and faster instead we got something that is making everything wrong. The return policy is disappointing, you have to return the item, unopened and not used, how will you know that you don't like it, when you have not used it? We buy so much from webrestaurantstore and would expect some privileges as a regular customer.

    Is difficult to operate and wouldn't recommend.. We have been kicking ourselves for not buying an automatic version of this. When the item states manual, they aren't kidding.!

    This works great for pressing out dough! It came in very fast! It is very quick which is nice since we need it for fast pressing! Would highly suggest!

    from The Factory Posted on

    This dough press is a great product, but it does require a relatively think dough to work effectively. We bought this product with high hopes that the timer feature and setting would create better uniformity over a traditional dough roller. Unfortunately, this product has not worked for us (presumably because our dough is too thick). I would suggest buying locally and trying it out rather than buying it online as returns are costly and difficult.

    from Big Fred's Pizza, Inc. Posted on

    This dough press makes rolling out dough a breeze and it will save you time and money! The machine heats up the dough and spreads it thin as it can get! Great buy!

    from Harrison Familey Restaurant Posted on

    this is perfect for high output pizzarias. This press provides nice even thin crusts. I have had the plesaseure of having one on the hot line during lunch and dinner services at a high end restaurant and it allowed me to spend more of my time tending to the delicate toppings.
