FAQ

How does Raisenne work?

The patent pending Raisenne Dough Riser product uses a screen-printed heater circuit utilizing a Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) ink. This ink is printed in a specific pattern to achieve the optimal temperature for raising bread dough.

How much faster should I expect my dough to rise?

In side-by-side tests, dough proofed faster with Raisenne than without. In some cases the proofing time was cut in half. We recommend checking your dough’s progress at half the regular proofing time and using visual cues to determine when proofing is complete. For example, a recipe might state that dough should double in size, so it is done proofing when it reaches that size, but not necessarily when a certain amount of time has passed.

Does Raisenne work on all dough?

Raisenne is designed to create and maintain an optimal temperature for most types of dough made with yeast to rise. Raisenne has been tested on many types of dough, from traditional bread dough, to pizza dough, sweet roll dough, and frozen dough. Refer to the recipe you’re using for special instructions on the proofing process.

What type of container should I put my dough in when using Raisenne?

You can use any type of container for your dough – glass, metal, plastic, ceramic or pottery. While the size and circular shape of the Raisenne Dough Riser is optimal for bowls, you can also place 1 or 2 standard-sized bread loaf pans on it as well.

Should I cover the dough in the container when using Raisenne?

Covering the container with the dough is recommended to help capture heat during the proofing process. You can drape a towel over the container or cover it with plastic wrap. If you are concerned that dough will reach the top of the container and stick to the plastic wrap you can put baking spray or oil on the underside of the plastic wrap so it doesn’t stick. Reference the recipe you’re using for specific instructions.

Is it safe to use Raisenne on my countertop?

Your Raisenne Dough Riser is safe for any countertop surface – laminate, wooden butcherblock, granite, stone, quartz or concrete. It will not reach a temperature that will damage any of these surfaces, and as an extra precaution, it’s designed to shut off rather than overheat.

What temperature does Raisenne produce?

Raisenne is designed to product an average constant temperature of approx. 85℉ / 29.4℃ which our testing has shown to be the ideal temperature for proofing most yeast doughs. 

Is Raisenne dishwasher safe?

Raisenne is not dishwasher safe. Do not immerse the Raisenne unit or cord in water. If necessary, wipe the heating unit with a damp cloth or moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use chemical or abrasive cleaners or polishes.

How do I store my Raisenne?
