Yogurt maker for holding colored cocoa butter??

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has had experience using a yogurt maker to store/hold colored cocoa butter? Generally speaking, is the temperature enough to keep it melted?  Does the cocoa butter need to be tempered before use? I think the temp of the machine might be too warm to hold it at temper but eventually I plan to be using an airbrush ( I heard the cocoa butter will essentially temper itself when it goes through the airbrush).  Any benefits to using one over just microwaving the bottles of color as you go? It seems the jars that come with a yogurt maker could hold quite a bit of cocoa butter. I'm still new at using color cocoa butters for painting moulds and any hints or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Did it successfully for years. Maybe it depends on the yogurt maker, but I kept my colored butters in the same bottles that my airbrush used. Yes, I did have to let them cool down a little before use, but a few minutes and a few good shakes and it was in temper and ready to go.
