Michael Arnovitz replied to Calum's discussion Chocolate Bar wrappers - Copyright issues from commercial use?
"Okay this is different. I didn't realize that you were talking about decorative and stationary paper. In that case I would simply call the manufacturer and ask them. They'll probably be fine with it. In fact they may really like the idea…"

Michael Arnovitz replied to Calum's discussion Chocolate Bar wrappers - Copyright issues from commercial use?
"If by "off the shelf" you mean stock photography and/or illustrations, then the answer to whether or not this is permitted depends on the company from which you license the art. When you pay for art on a stock art web site you are not…"

Michael Arnovitz replied to Alan Caldwell's discussion alternatives to champion juicer
"This is probably outside of your budget, and I haven't seen anyone else do this, but Scott Witherow at Olive & Sinclair uses (or at least used to use) a Mexican corn mill. Check out the attached video at about the 1:25 mark. Looks like…"

Michael Arnovitz replied to Paul John Kearins's discussion Should I be 1099'd for a customer's purchases?
"A couple of thoughts: 1) This is a question for your accountant. 2) 1099's are usually (but not always) issued to people, not corporations. If your company is incorporated, and she paid your company, she probably doesn't need to give you a…"

Michael Arnovitz replied to Vladislav's discussion Choosing enrobing cabin (Coating cabins)
"Their customer service may not be great, but my understanding is their equipment is well-respected, and a lot of companies use it. I'm sure that Clay or others can add more about them."

Michael Arnovitz replied to Vladislav's discussion Choosing enrobing cabin (Coating cabins)
"300,000 Euros for a coating cabin? Wow. That must be a large, integrated system of some type. You didn't say anything about what level of output you require, so I have no idea if this will work for you. But I know that Savy Goiseau makes…"

Michael Arnovitz replied to Cesar Jose's discussion Caffeinated Chocolate
"Salt is a known bitterness suppressor, and is often used for this purpose. Plus it goes well with chocolate. It's the only natural ingredient I can think of that will do this. There is of course a limit to its effectiveness, so I don't…"

Michael Arnovitz replied to Kaydee Kreitlow's discussion business structure in the group Startup Central
"I've opened a number of businesses and I've gone with a LLC each time. I agree with most of what Brad says, as I usually do, but personally I would still never open a business as a sole proprietor. If it was thousands of dollars to create…"

Michael Arnovitz replied to Fazlur Baksh's discussion cooling chocolate
"Yes. There are two factors you want to look at when choosing a stone for this purpose: thermal conductivity and thermal capacitance. The first is the ability of the material to conduct heat (or cold), the second is the ability of the material to…"

Michael Arnovitz replied to Andy Ciordia's discussion Nuts & Rancidity
"Andy - I looked into this myself (for different reasons) last fall. The good news is that you can get vacuum sealing systems with a nitrogen flush for less than you might think. I saw some for as little as $3,000. The bad news is that these systems…"

Michael Arnovitz replied to Karen Moore's discussion Dispensing Caramel
"I'm guessing that more than one person might point out that you didn't give nearly enough info about what you're doing to answer that question. But on a small scale, here's an idea: http://youtu.be/sD2zeQsgp2g"

Michael Arnovitz replied to Clay Gordon's discussion Marking the Passing of an Inspiration: Mott Green
"I went to his presentation last year at the Northwest Chocolate Festival in Seattle, where he talked about the formation and ongoing state of the Granada Chocolate Company. It was impressive, and I am very sorry to hear of his passing. He made…"

Michael Arnovitz replied to beth campbell's discussion melanger necessary?
"Clay - in regard to the conche you refer to at the end of your post, I have seen universal conches that look like a small Macintyre. I think Brad uses something like this. Is this what you are referring to? I had no idea that they were that much…"
