A long time ago I decided I wasnt going to get a confectionery funnel, mainly because all the ones I could find were more then I was willing to pay, but just recently I I was browsing on pastrychef.com, and they have an economy funnel, I'm pretty sure this was added in the last month or so, I've never seen this one. Heres a link:
Aside from the silly purple color, it doesnt seem to be that badly built. I like that the trigger is metal, unlike this one from Matfer ( http://www.pastryche...TIC_p_1059.html ) which is three times the price!
The body of the economy one is polycarbonate, as are some of the Matfer funnels, it comes with a stand and three nozzle sizes. For $30, its hard for me to find any flaws, this is the cheapest funnel I've seen, the next cheapest was the second like I posted, at $90, and it goes all the way up to $400 from there. Now I would be using this just for the home, does anyone have any thoughts?
One thing in particular I was wondering, I guess about the funnels in general, is do they not leak when you dip them in hot water? In Chocolates and Confections, Greweling says to pour the fondant or gummie mixture into a funnel heated by dipping it in hot water to aid the dispensing, are those little nozzles really water tight? It seems like some water would get in there, anyone use these on a regular basis?
