Hello everyone,I own a bakery and we make a ping pong ball sized product that is currently hand dipped in chocolate using, ahem, a spoon. As our volumes (about 2,000 per 8 hour shift) have outpaced…Continue
"You can certainly get panning machines for a lot less than $16K. However, they do require a good deal of skill to learn to use well. (Hint #1 - you do NOT use tempered chocolate when panning). If you don't want to learn, or don't have the…"
"If it's pretzel like - it should be able to be panned. Suspect you can put together something for panning for less than $16,000 unless you want a nice one with built in heating and cooling like the Selmi panner. "

"Like Kerry, I am confused with your term Couveture chocolate. If it doesn't need tempering, I don't think it is couveture. If a compound coating, I don't know that an enrober would help much. Have you tried using a…"
"When you say you are using couverture so you don't need to temper - do you mean you are using compound chocolate?
Round things are a little harder to enrobe on an enrobing line due to the shape. If you are using chocolate…"
Hello everyone,I own a bakery and we make a ping pong ball sized product that is currently hand dipped in chocolate using, ahem, a spoon. As our volumes (about 2,000 per 8 hour shift) have outpaced this antiquated method we are about to invest in enrobing equipment but really need your expert advice.
