How many grams per bun? Yum!
They are 125 grams each. Cut from a 4.5 Kg piece and put into a manual bun press, for 36 equal pieces, which are rolled into balls, and slashed with an X
here is the press

What a time saver!
Adam, is that a good press.  I'm wanting to buy one but the semi automatics are very expensive for my little budget.

Cheers,

Tony
I love the photo angle, especially the map showing Oz!
Adam would that be a dutch divider or what is the true name?
yea the angle is coincidence. Picture was taken a few years ago. We lost the map somewhere.
Divider is made by Oliver.

It works great, and is really a time saver. We not only put buns to round, but floured buns in it as well.
oh yea, you can mount them anywhere. That one used to be on a wooden table. If you get one, make sure whatever is holding it down is secure. Sometimes you have to press hard with all your weight ( if you aren't very big) and it will want to tip over on you!
I don't have a problem though.
