I have been making homemade pizza for years and why I haven’t owned a dough docker is beyond me! So needless to say, I am beyond thrilled with my new kitchen gadget; Orblue’s Dough Docker!

We make homemade pizza about once a week in my house and when the pizza production starts we make a ton of it and oddly enough it only last a few hours; we love our pizza pies! We make our own dough and use the freshest premium ingredients we can find, from fresh Buffalo Mozzarella, to homemade pizza sauce to fresh vegetables and meats.

Problem I’ve always had is that I roll out the dough nice and thin the way my family likes their pizza, place the dough on the pizza pan, poke a fork all over the pizza dough and no matter what amount of rolling and fork poking I do there are always air bubbles in the crust and the odd time one side would rise thicker than the other so one side would be too crunch and the other side soggy, or I’d lay the dough on the pan and the dough would start shrinking and pulling into the center and thickening up, no amount of tugging at the dough would keep it at the bay.

Well, Orblue’s Dough Docker has now solved this problem for me.  I prepared the dough as normal, rolled it out with the rolling pin as I do then I transferred it to the pizza pan and ran the docker over the entire area of the dough and impressively it stayed put. I am impressed that when the pies baked up they were nice and thin and crunchy just the way my family likes them, so needless to say I think this is a winner of a product for our weekly pizza nights. 

The Orblue Dough Docker is solid white plastic with white spikes throughout; the roller can be removed for easy cleaning which is easy to wash both in the kitchen sink as well as in the dishwasher.

Orblue’s Burger Press makes perfect hamburger patties in seconds. The Orblue Burger Press arrived days before the official start of summer and it’s getting a regular workout at my house.  I love the fact that it makes perfectly shaped patties that are ready to grill.  The Orblue Burger Press comes in a three piece set which includes the burger mold, removable lifter and the handheld patty press.

Its tremendous easy to use; we used 6 ounces of our favourite hamburger recipe to make perfect uniform patties that were 4 ½ inches round and slightly over ½ inch thick.  Thinner patties can be made by using less meat; typically a 4 ounce patty will be slightly thicker than a ¼ inch; a nice sized portion for a small child or someone who is not a big eater. 

We got a deal on ground sirloin and turned our kitchen into a burger patty production zone where we made burger after burger for future use.  We traced out circles of parchment paper the size of the burger mold that we inserted between each of the patties for easy separation when frozen; stacked them 6 high and wrapped them well for the freezer.  The patties removed easily from the lifter without issue, however if you’re making veggie burgers I’d give it a light spray with cooking oil as veggie burger mix tends to be break apart. Now the kids can make their own burgers whenever they want; which at my house is all the time, we couldn’t make them fast enough to keep them happy and fed.

No one at my house enjoys pre-made store bought burgers; they never taste like beef and are loaded with preservatives and fillers which nobody needs in their bodies. Homemade burgers can be customized and made to each individuals liking with all the variations and recipes there are out in cyber world you can have a different burger every day of the week and not get bored.

Typically we use to make them fresh by hand, rolling out large balls of burger meat and then pressing them down; the problem with this method is that they’ll be cracks around the perimeter of the burger which while cooking tends to break off and end up in the flame. The fact that the lifter tray has a divot in the center makes for cooking the perfect burger, which prevents the meat from shrinking as well as from plumping up in the middle; we found that the cooked burgers pretty much retained their shape and size.

The Orblue Burger Press is made of a very strong durable plastic, that I am certain will last me for years to come. The handle on the press is black, lightweight and equally as strong.  It washes up beautiful both in the kitchen sink and in the dishwasher and all three components stack for easy storage.

ORBLUE Professional Rotary Cheese Grater

Orblue’s Rotary Cheese Grater is a welcomed addition to my kitchen and it works perfectly for all my cooking and baking needs. Cheese especially is a staple product in our home; we sure do love our cheeses and enjoy making a variety of dishes that contain cheese or are topped with cheese.

The only hassle grating the cheese, I personally don’t the like plane graters; either the holes are too big or are too small and if they’re too small it seems that the cheese sticks to them so in effect it doesn’t look like you’re grating anything at all, and if you get it grated you’ll grate your poor fingers trying to grate the last bit! Sure you can buy the grated cheese, but if its taste you’re after you’re certainly not going to get it there either, especially cheese like Romano, Asiago and Parmesan which tend to be hard cheeses and taste best freshly grated.

The Orblue cheese grater has the perfect sized holes to get create the perfect grated cheese.  It is so easy and simple to use and comes in three components: the detachable turn handle, the combination handle, hopper with lid and arm and the grating drum itself.   It’s a solid hard plastic sturdy product that has a secure screw fastener to hold the lid/arm in place. 

Simply cube your cheese up to a size of 1 ½ by 2 ½ inches and you’re ready to start grating in a clockwise rotation. The beauty of the Orblue cheese grater is that you can either grate into a bowl, grate over your food or you can grate keeping the grater straight which will fill the drum, if you over grate then the cheese will slip out as the drum fills and due to the curvature of the lid it will grate all the cheese in the hopper. It’s perfect to leave on the dinner table and pass around for your family and friends to grate their own portions. It works perfectly on hard foods like chocolates, nuts, as well as spices like nutmeg and cinnamon and holds up really well under pressure.
