Any idea where I can get a good heavy duty steamer for fondant/gumpaste? I really like the shiny look that a steamer gives but I have no idea where to start looking for one.
No real need for a "heavy duty" steamer--anything other than a tiny travel steamer will do a nice job.
I have a "My Little Steamer" by Joy Mangano that I got off of Ebay. I love it--nice sized water reservoir, fine steam stream, no spitting, and relatively inexpensive. I've also seen something very similar in
CVS and Walgreens.
Bed, Bath & Beyond has clothes steamers in all sizes, Buddy Balastro from cake boss uses one the large ones.
Thank you -- actually Cake Boss prompted my post last night!
nick lodge uses the samsonite steamer.. you can order them from samsonite....they are really nice.. haven,t gotten one yet..but want to... my friend got hers from samsonite.. hth...i think they are $40.00
I just remembered I have a 20% off coupon at Bed Bath and Beyond. I hope its still good!
I just bought a small one at Bed, Bath and Beyond last weekend. it was around $50 and works great!
I have discovered the steam setting on my iron works wonders and I only use this
I would check out CVS beforre spending $40 or $50 dollars. I bought a steamer similar to Nick Lodge's for $19.99. I have used it for both flowers and cakes. It works beautifully.
Shucks! I should have looked around more. I would have loved to have spent less.
I use a "steam buddy" (for clothes) that I got at Walgreens for about $12.
