Choc Tempering machines: Dedy Mini vs KeyChoc X2

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about moving up to the big leagues and purchasing a wheelie or spiny (is that a real name?). I'm looking at https://www.tcfsales.com/products/557-dedy-mini-moulding-machine-23-kg/  vs https://www.keychoc.com/products/infinity-x2/

 

Does anyone have thoughts on these or something similar with a price around 5-6k? We have been growing slowly but I want to make sure it is a machine that will still grow with us over the next few years. Anything will be an HUGE upgrade as it is. We currently use a 12 kg Mol d'art for all of our molding and enrobing. Thanks for your insights.

Have you looked at a Savage? https://www.savagebros.com/p.25/artisan-chocolatier-small-batch-chocolate-melters-temperers.aspx   They are a bit pricey, but I have 3 of them and wouldn't be without them. They are simple to operate. You can temper in them, or get an EZTemper.  My enrober is a wheel (Perfect). It gets the job done, and has paid for itself many times over. It just takes some work and experience to get it where you want it. Before investing, I would try to see the equipment in person. The thing with the Savage, it has a guillotine drawoff. You can place your molds under and control the amount of chocolate that comes out.  Tap excess back into the top. Great for production.  

Another consideration is where you are, and if you have the electricity necessary. All my equipment runs on 110. Most equipment can be ordered either 110 or 220.

I do have a EZTemper. It has made a WORLD of difference. I will look into the Savage. I thought that equipment was for a much larger more industrial scale. I have looked at the Perfect enrober. I know a few people that swear by theirs.

 

This is just such a big investment, I'd like to do my due diligence before committing.

Mebinsf, I'm curious if you made a decision on a tempering machine.

I'm researching now and would like to know what you've learned.
