What came first, the croissant or the sheeter?There’s really no way to get a great croissant without a sheeter
Just because the dough was invented before sheeter does it mean the The handmade dough is superior. When you roll dough by hand you cannot apply exacting and uniform pressure. A machine can. Technology is in some cases far superior to what a human can do.What came first, the croissant or the sheeter?
Same with refrigeration, my boss worked at Poilane when they had no refrigerators, it can be done because thats the way it was done.
I used to make 1000 a day on weekends without a sheeter, it can't be done with the french rolling pin.
The sheeter made it fast and easier but not better.
well you know I’ve eaten a lot of really crappy croissants in my life, so I am very surprised at what the human hand can do and still ccroissant.I found no difference except time and ease.
Superior in efficiency yes definitely.
You'd be surprised what the human hand can do, lathe beds that rely on accuracy down to thousands of an inch are hand finished by hand lapping and scraping, this is after they are machined by the best CNC computer controlled horizontal mills.
I bet the your sheeter dough is better than your hand dough. There is no way you can be exacting in pressure by hand as a machine. there is just no way. A human cannot roll with the same precision as a machine.I owned a rondo 3 phase sheeter for 30 years, I know what it can do.
