100 Cotton Solid Color Matching Sling Midi Dresses Review
appletree83: I was visiting a friend who didn't own a pastry cutter, so we ran to the store to get one. All they had was this Oxo Dough Blender, so even though I prefer a blender with blades, I bought this by default. What a mistake! When I tried to chop the shortening into the flour (for a pie crust), this piece of junk only SMASHED the shortening into the flour, and I couldn't create the 'pea-sized' shortening pieces that allow you to have a light, flaky crust.I do not recommend this blender at all! It ruined my pie crust! I only recommend a pastry blender/cutter with BLADES that chop the shortening into the flour, or the butter into a streusel topping. Oxo actually sells a correctly bladed one (the "Oxo Good Grips Dough Blender with Blades"), so why would you buy their inferior dough blender??
Ashley Scott: This dough blender grips nicely in your hand, but the wires aren't sturdy at all and bend and warp when used on dough that is even slightly thick. Pretty useless, since the point is to use this to blend harder chunks of cold butter or thicker dough. The harder pieces just push the wires aside instead of blending them into the dough.I've also tried bending the wires back to where they should be and they're just left wavy and out of place.
BrendaEGesserit: I've used this several time now for making crumb-toppings and simple shortbread-type doughs, and it works quite well as long as the recipe calls for soft butter; it seemed a little lightweight when using cold butter, so I'll continue doing that by hand.
Carole: I bake many types of scones and pastries that demand perfect blending. That means the fat and flour must be blended well, but not overblended. This tool has taken a lot of the hard work and time out of the old way of using two knives in scissors action. The overall balance to weight ratio is excellent; the handle is a good diameter and width, and the tines are spaced apart nicely. The design of the tines makes reaching all parts of the bowl to pick up flour a breeze. Cleanup is easy since you can toss it into the diswasher without fear of rust. I highly recommend this product from novice to pro.
chef's mom: The ribs are just too bendy for my taste. I use cold butter and lard so I need something that won't slip around the edges of the fat instead of cutting through it. I always used two criss-crossed butter knives and don't find that this works as well. I'd prefer the similarly shaped nut chopper to this.
