I bet there’s a lot of equipment out there you’d love to have if you like to make chocolates. I know…I know what it’s like to crave that shiny immersion blender, those molds with the cool shapes-you can taste the fillings just thinking about it-that warmer that will hold 5, yes 5! whole kilos of melted chocolate. Many of these items have multiple uses and are also handy for making confections such as brittles, fondant, fudge, paté de fruit, and other items; you might as well learn to make these too, since so many of them go well with chocolate.
So here’s my list of items for the serious chocolate maker/confectioner. Let’s call you the “prosumer” like they do for camera models-you’re not a pro just yet, but you’d like to be, and you’re serious about making chocolates, though it might only be a seasonal thing. If I had to limit it to ten specific pieces of equipment you need, I’m doing it here. This is not counting the SS bowls, heat proof spatulas, and other basics that are handy to have around the kitchen:
Later I’ll be posting on where you can find these items at the best prices.
