I am wondering if the kitchen aide panning attachment is worth the 575 they want for it ?
I understand that it is not made by kitchenaide, but by a French company, and I would like to make sure that it will work on my model, and make large enough batches that it is cost effective to spend the money on the equipemt and labor,
also I have never used a panning machine before, i'd ike to hear people;s experiences.
thanks for the reply.
that looks like the same machine, but the best price I have seen so far.
from what I understand, you put in your coffee beans or nuts, and slowly pour in tempered chocolate as it turns?
here is a good conversation that I found on the topic. **
apparantly it does take a lot of temp control, and it seems that each batch takes a considerable amount of time.
It is hard to imagine that much investment in equipment and labor paying off.
** Jeff, I just notice that you are involved in that conversation, and that you know MIchael Recchiuti. That's great!
As I was starting out, I was told by a mutual friend of mine and MIchael's that I should look him up, so I went to his shop at the Fisherman's Terminal and of course I was very impressed. Love what he does.
I did not get to meet him though.
we also have a hair dryer in the shop, maybe that will work for heating
to polish... can we achieve shine with my regular couverture?
