I saw it when I looked - thanks!

Oh look, my comment is gone too.

Interesting - wonder if they'll get rid of the other one too! Didn't realize you could get rid of comments on Instagram.

Huh, I’m getting a ‘user not found’ message when looking for kriss’ original post on Instagram. I mean, he may have blocked me after I told him his new tattoo was all wrong, but he should still show up, right?  Weird. 

 

And I agree, only one canister seems less useful, with multiple canisters you can have one ready to go and a back up working for continuous supply.

Speaking of multiple canisters, @Kerry Beal, how many of the size that are included can you fit at once and still have it function as intended?  Bakon seems to be after a  higher volume customer, have you determined a max capacity for the EZ?  The option of larger canisters could be attractive at higher volumes - I'm picturing Indian tiffin lunch boxes that are 4-6" diameter or a round bain marie insert that could hold 1 - 2 kg.

 

And can containers be plastic or glass?    It could be handy to have smaller, pre-measured amounts of silk - if I'm making 5 batches that need 100 g of silk each, could I stack 5 plastic deli containers in there and skip weighing to order?

 Intrigued ... so I went and checked.  Here's the only comment I found about EZTemper and yes, @pastrygirl, kriss showed up when I did a search on that name so quite possibly he has blocked you (how rude!)

So it can hold 6 canisters - the extra canisters I obtained are in two sizes 8 cm (like those with it) and 9 cm. You can put 2 of the larger and 4 of the smaller in there. That gives a larger capacity than the competition. A big container would be fine as long as there is room for air circulation around it.

 

Plastic or glass is fine - health department might have an issue with glass and the set temperature may be a little different.

Suspect that might disappear before long as well!

I’ve been following Kriss on Instagram for some time now and I’m fairly certain a portion of his posts are advertisements for products where he has some incentives to post about them. I’m guessing he is deleting comments about competing products on all such posts.

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.

Might be the case. Thought it funny that he declares himself the first owner in the US (except Valrhona) - he's not!

Gain access to dozens and dozens of followers? ;)

 

It was quite fascinating to me though that when Flavio Federico in Brazil posted an Instagram video with his new EZtemper - my followers went up exponentially. Sadly it apparently costs around $3000 US for a Brazilian to import one between duties and taxes. A few enterprising Brazilians have had me send them to friends and family in the US and had them brought down or have picked them up. Here's a link to his post - Flavio's video on Instagram

Alexandre Bourdeaux is on Melissa Coppel’s live Instagram story using the EZTemper right now :) . Well, it was an hour ago—but it’s still up :) .

Thanks for the head's up. I can't seem to copy it. I'm such a luddite.

Going through some e-mails tonight I realize that he contacted me about purchasing an EZtemper a while back - he mentioned he tried to get the competition to match my price. Guess they must have come around!

I’m not sure you can copy a story. When I was looking in to it months ago, all the apps listed in various articles were no longer available. Maybe you could contact Melissa. 

 

He seemed impressed by it. :)

EZtemper was invited to the opening of the Chocolate Academy in South Africa. Unfortunately they had a problem with the mail chimp app and invites didn't go out early. So it would be a bit tight to get there for next week!

I took a chocolate class with Ramon Morato at the Chocolate Academy Singapore last year....he was raving about the EZtemper and thats all we used...did not even turn on the Selmi except for the enrobing pieces.

 

He has been a wonderful support!

      Has anyone successfully made candied chestnuts (marrons glace) at home which even remotely resemble the professional ones you get from Europe?
       
      I've tried making them using RTE Chinese chestnuts from Costco with varying success:
      One batch became leathery after being simmered in (what started out as) simple syrup which had its sucrose concentration gradually increased.
       
      I have also tried soaking the chestnuts in hot water prior to beginning the candying process.  The nuts, once again, developed a tough skin after a few days.  To reverse the tough skins I added more water to the syrup, broke the nuts up into pieces and simmered them gently for a few hours.
      While some pieces have a tough skin, many of them have taken on a candied texture.
       
      Should any further attempts to candy chestnuts be attempted using the method of slowly simmering them in simple syrup?
       
      Please share any feedback ypu may have.  Thanks!

      Hello friends,
       
      We recently got our selmi plus ex and have had a handful of successful runs. So far mostly with our enrobing line. 
       
      Theres been 2 occasions now that I have noticed when tempering the machine is cooling past the target temp. When it does this it goes down into the 28c range and the screw pump has to shut off due to the temp and viscosity. 
       
      I also noticed the manual is pretty light on operational procedures. 
       
      The 2 things I can think of that might be causing this other then an equipment error is 
      the chocolate used is to thick or there is a build up of chocolate around the temperature probe near the faucet. 
       
      Wondering if anyone else has had this issue before.

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      A quite unusual take on the favorite American chocolate bar: click
    • By ShylahSinger
      Help! I am an amateur and make chocolate truffles, bonbons, and caramels for friends and family. I made some soft caramel for filling molded bonbons. The flavor and consistency are fine, but the caramel is filled with bubbles. I don't know how to get the air bubbles out, and am concerned using it in my molded chocolates. I would like to know if it is okay to use. I have been making confections for about four years and this is the first time this has happened. I would really appreciate any help! I'm new to the forum and don't know anyone yet.
