I purchased this couche in order to make the baguette recipe from Cooks Illustrated. I had tried the recipe without using a couche but the results are so much better with the couche. As noted in the recipe, using a couche promotes a better crust. It's true! Definitely an essential if you want to make authentic baguettes with a really crispy crust.
Fantastic, true baker's linen. It's large and looks and feels like the real linen a professional baker uses. I have dusted it with a little flour, but since it is real baker's linen, it does not need much flour at all. TIP to keep in mind: NEVER wash it.
I have used this once.. This is my first use of a proofing cloth.. So far so good. It seems to do the job yet I have nothing to compare it to.
Revision, 1/4/2014 I have used this a multitude of times now and have to say there is a big difference in the overall consistency and quality of my baguettes. The cloth does a great job at wicking out mostture which helps keep a good proof and tauntness to the dough. I originally did not know this was a desired effect of the cloth yet after some research N discover this was one of the functions of the cloth. The cloth holds flour well as well as maintains folds well to keep baguettes separated.
