"Hi Sally, The Kitchen-Aid attachment, provided you already own a Kitchen-Aid, is a great way to get started. It is fun and inexpensive, and allows you to try out the process before making a bigger investment. Stand-alone panning machines can cost,…"

Kristofer Kalas replied to Caroline White's discussion Blemishes on chocolate bars
"I suggest using a warming cabinet http://www.moldart.be/chocolate_heating for future cleaning. Once you use your molds once, and turn out your chocolate, just don't return them to the water from there. They should be fine."

Kristofer Kalas replied to Caroline White's discussion Blemishes on chocolate bars
"These may be water marks left over from washing your molds. We never wash our molds in water; we simply heat, wipe and polish. Do you have especially hard water where you live? Take a look at your molds and see if you can spot the water marks."

"Hi Meira, I realize this is a bit late, but I'm still happy to answer your question. In order to pan products, you must have some sort of specialized machine for it; the Kitchen Aid attachment is a good beginning option and not overly…"

"The shipping cost to NY should be very reasonable, I think around $500 and even less. I'm able to sell the machine at $9,500 immediately to get a more space in my kitchen but it's not urgent."

"Ok, that all sounds fine. I should look into what freight costs to bring it to New York, because that may be a determining factor; I'm working with a limited equipment budget at the moment. I am traveling in and out of the country for the next…"

Kristofer Kalas replied to mary amsterdam's discussion hand-dipping truffles
"If you're hand-dipping square truffles, you'll ideally want to use what's called a 'bottoming mix.' Basically, take 50/50 Cocoa Liquor and Cocoa Butter, mix and melt to about 32-34C, stir and cool to about 29/30C, and apply…"

Hi Kristofer,

I understand, it was the same for us and very busy for the holiday season. Yes i still have the Comfit available and run Great. I just bought 2 bigger size because of the wholesale volume. I bought this machine 2 years ago from Tomric and I paid around $16,500 with shipping cost and spray system. I have an extra Gear Box and motor because when the machine was in warranty, it was a little noise from the box. Selmi sent me a complete Gear box and motor to replace but the 1st one was running great. 

Call me anytime to discuss 702-541-0131 or please give me your phone number and i will call you.

Thank you
