I saw Jacques Torres on Martha stewart's show and he used a tool to spread and level melted chocolate on acetate. I would like to know what it is called and where could it be found. I have searched google but couldn't find anything probable because I don't know the correct name of it!! Could Anyone who works with chocolate help me Please??!!

What did it look like? My husband has a lot of chocolate tools, but I'm not sure which one you are asking about.

It kind of looks like half of a square cutter. Here is the link to the show if you look at the right there a tv box and it says Easter Chocolate and click on it:

It is called a leveler, but hard to find. My husband checked Chef Rubber web site, but they don't carry it. He'll check his other sites and let you know if he finds anything. Nothing to do with chocolate is cheap. A poor mans version would be to use confectionery rulers and a long offset spatula. This has worked well for him.

okay, here it is. This is a long URL, hope it works. If not, go to jbprince.com and look for a "RAPLETTE" DOUGH SPREADER. Like I said, nothing to do with chocolate is cheap. Hope this helps

OMG--for $156+ before shipping, I'll stay "poor". icon_eek.gif

I use "perfection strips" from countrykitchensa.com (I forget, maybe $12 for a set?) and a long offset spatula (maybe $8 before a coupon at Michael's) and I'm good to go. Easy cleanup, too.

Maybe one day, I'll invest in some heavy metal spacer bars, but for now, it works.
