This Double Guitar Kit is the most versatile and invaluable piece of equipment every professional confection maker should own.  Used to create unique confections that can be square, rectangular, triangular or diamond shape, single, double or multi-layered.  This kit comes with a Valrhona ganache frame set that includes 2 stainless steel angular guiding rulers, 2 stainless steel flat trays and stainless steel frame base.  In combination with 16 customized food grade plastic ganache frames, produces uniform single and multi-layered slabs of filling (ganache, almond paste, pate de fruit, caramel, marshmallow, nougatine etc...) that easily fit onto the guitar cutter for uniform and perfectly cut pieces every time.  This double guitar is also unique in that it cuts in both directions without having to turn product, thus reducing time and food costs by rapidly and accurately cutting your filling of choice.  Perfect for cutting brownies, cakes, petit fours, dough and any other tender confections you are working with.
