DoughXpress: DM-18NH Manual Cold Pizza Dough Press

DoughXpress: DM-18NH Manual Cold Pizza Dough Press

The DM-18NH is a no heat clamshell manual pizza dough press, perfect for low to medium production volumes and any budget. The DM-18NH is ideal for hearth-baked pizzas, and is a fast, safe, simple alternative to hand-tossing or sheeting your dough. 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 crust 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-18NH has 18 inch round platens that allow for finished crusts up to 18 inches. The DM-18NH is easy to use and requires no skilled labor unlike hand tossing. 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 flour dough ball on the floured lower platen, pull down the handle until it locks into position, and hold for 7 to 10 seconds. Release the handle. Remove your crust from the platen, it will be approximately 60% of your desired size. Simply toss or stretch by hand to achieve the finished crust size and place on screen or pan for makeup and baking. The DM-18NH is made in the USA and ships UPS in the continental US.

    Great dough press.

    I love this product. It has performed exactly how I wanted it too. I use it for pizza crust and also use it for making hamburger buns. Saves me so much time!

    DM-18NH preforms exactly as advertised by the manufacturer. It presses the dough ball to roughly 60% of its completed and desired size. It is an extremely well made and very heavy product. I gave it 3 stars only because of the fact that I am a mobile catering operation and have to take everything I need for a gig with me - each and every time. The DM-18NH proved to be completely impractical for me because of this. In DoughXpress' defense, their website DOES recommend that their product not be frequently moved. I knew this when I purchased the product, but wanted to try it anyway. I did not use the unit long enough to get comfortable with the exact process. I watched a couple of bad DX videos showing it in use and tried unsuccessfully to duplicate what they were doing. I can't tell you if it's best to use flour or cooking spray to keep the dough ball from sticking. I tried both and because I like to use a dough with a higher moisture, didn't have great success with either. Even so, I would just peel the stuck dough round from the press and move it to the building station to complete the stretching and shaping. It is an amazingly simple design and I think I would have eventually figured out how to use it effectively (excluding the above reasons for not using it). What I attempted to find, prior to purchasing the press was someone who was using it so I could get more information. Had I found that, I would not likely have purchased it. The purpose of this note is not to encourage you to buy this product - but neither is it to discourage you. As I said, it is a very well built unit - one that will be in service for many years to come (I sold it the week after my purchase -be advised that DX will not accept returns per webstaurantstore.com). I do, however, hope this helps you make an educated decision one way or the other - as I could find no customer comments on the press prior to my purchase. If anyone from DX reads this, please do this for those of us in the field who actually use your products - make use of the internet and put up DETAILED videos of all your products. Show us exactly how to use them so that we do not have to go through the learning curve. It would be so easy for you to do, I am surprised that you have not. You have a great product line from what I can tell and one that is fairly priced. Do not depend on poorly shot video from a trade show to properly train someone on the best method of using your products.
