Looking for small chocolate enrober

8 posts in this topic

I recently heard tell of a small sized (table-top?) chocolate enrober--I didn't know such a thing existed, but it's exactly what I need. Anybody familiar with such a thing? Know any distributors?

Hilliard makes a little one that I have seen in action. It attaches to their little dipper temperer. I seem to recall there was discussion about this once before and some people thought it was too small. I'll see if I can find the link. Meanwhile check out www.hilliardschocolate.com and look for the 6 inch coater.

Did Kitchen Aid make an enrober attachment or am I smoking crack?

It was like $500?

???

I think they did...

I wonder if you are thinking of a coating pan. It's around $500 and fits on a kitchen aid, but made by debuyer in France.

Here?

Yes, I thought the tumbler thing was called an enrober but I got the names mixed up didn't I?

The coating pan tumbles things and the enrober showers a water fall (chocolatefall really) stream of chocolate onto product traveling through it on a conveyor belt?

Yup, but I think the tumbled things are still referred to as enrobed, hence the confusion.

My ego appreciates your generosity. :raz:

      Hi All!
       
      I know this has surely been talked about, by my search for this information on the forums has been challenging. Would anyone care to share their favourite brand of coloured cocoa butter for decorations chocolate molds, etc? One with a diverse selection of colours. Or do you find it preferable to melt cocoa butter and add a fat-soluable powdered colour?
       
      Thanks for sharing your experiences!

      Hi everyone!
       
      I hope I'm not posting in the wrong section. I am looking for recommendations on where to find a used/economically priced climate controlled (low humidity and refrigerated, but not too cold) chocolate display case as well as a regular refrigerated display case (bakery style). Something like this, but it doesn't need to be too fancy looking. I am living in Canada on the West Coast, so the closer to local, the better. I'm finding it very challenging to find something. I found and excellent deal on a couple of used ones in the USA, but the seller doesn't want to deal with the hassle of having it crated and shipped. I'm trying to keep up to date searching on the Ecole Chocolat graduate forum as well as The Chocolate Life classifieds. 
       
      Also, does anyone know if a smaller table-top type climates controlled chocolate display case exists? Or are the only options out there for larger models?
       
      Warm Regards,
      Christy

      So I've been looking for the ultimate matcha brownies (technically blondies but it just doesn't have the same ring to it). I've made chewy and fudgy regular brownies, but I find white chocolate based blondies to be much trickier. I have made a few matcha brownie recipes in the past, but they all came out sad and cakey. So I have taken it upon myself to come up with my own recipe. My matcha brownies came out very moist and "fudgy" but not chewy. I'm thinking next time I should try using vegetable oil instead of butter and only dark brown sugar.

      I just started a new Craft Chocolate Company and am looking for a source for powdered whole milk on a small scale (3-5kg).  Any suggestions?

      Some chocolate makers have incredibly intricate chocolate molds that boggle my mind.  How do they clean them?  Or do they not clean/polish them?  Or have an army of interns?  Or just do it perfectly every time and polishing molds is for suckers anyway?
       
       
      They are beautiful, but seem so very impractical.  What am I missing?
