  1. I have used both glass and plastic deli containers. With glass, you need to adjust the temp down. With the deli containers, you adjust up. I think it might be problematic to have a lot of different size and material containers in at the same time. I usually put the deli container in overnight, then transfer to the SS containers. I bought bulk CB, melted, tempered and poured into deli containers for storage. Very easy to just pop into the EZ.
  2. Is there a smell or taste to them?
  3. Agree with Bob. I got one of the first ones. Don't know what I would do without it. If there is a con, it is having to buy cocoa butter, but in the end, it is worth it.
  4. Freeze Dried Fruit Powder

    https://www.vandrunenfarms.com/ I have had good luck with them.
  5. Guitar base size?

    I actually do a lot of shipping. They seems to arrive in good shape. Nothing like being totally enclosed in plastic, but no complaints. Paper cups come in many sizes. You just need to find what works for you. I also custom designed my boxes to fit my product. If you use paper cups, start by spreading the stack with your two thumbs, then with one hand, just peel them off the bottom of the stack with thumb and middle finger.
  6. Guitar base size?

    Thanks Curls. We decided early on, not to have plastic trays. I'm mostly happy with that decision, but trays are better for shipping. I wouldn't mind paper dividers, but not a fan of the plastic.
  7. Not really sure what I'm looking at, but a few observations: Molds filled too full, ganache not allowed to setup overnight. Colors are fun.
  8. Hi Anna, It will be good to see you again. I'm still thinking about what to make:).
  9. Can I just say that anyone not signing up for the Saturday dinner is making a huge mistake???? That is a highlight of the weekend. I really am not a mushroom fan, but I love the mushroom soup! Everything is fantastic.
  10. Are you going to have a Fuji there for sale?
  11. Count me in for all:)
  12. Troubleshooting Caramels

    Have you tried adding the butter before the end of the cook? I add it at about 10F before end temp.
  13. Valrhona Inspirations

    Passionfruit is $86 for 3K. Mine is on order. Will be in mid March. Tried these at FFS in January. Absolutely love the passionfruit!
  14. I'll tell you what doesn't work:) I bought a large plastic tote, thinking I would cut a hole in the bottom to fit my shop vac hose, then put a furnace filter in the bottom. Turned it on its side. It actually sort of worked, but the only spray it trapped was in the circle of the hose, which if I thought about it, only makes sense. You might turn down the psi on your compressor.
  15. On the water trap---I didn't have one at first. No problems, but thought it would be a good idea. It never trapped any water:). We live in an extremely dry climate and probably isn't necessary for here. I think the problem would be moisture in the CB.
