I am in the research phase of purchasing a steamer for my shop to steam my fondant cakes for that shiny finish. Does anyone have any brands they prefer over others and the price points?

Than k you

I just purchased one at a black friday sale for $20 at Younkers. (is this even a retailer anywhere else? icon_smile.gif
Haven't tried it yet, but I figure its not something that probably needs to be top notch in order to work. We'll see though!

I have been wanting to try this.......does anyone know how long the fondant will stay shiny? Just thinking it will dry out at some point.

I just bought a conair steamer for $20.00 worked great! I used it on a cake dummie that was covered in fondant . It stayed shiny for about 24 hours then i hit it again right before the contest and it was shiney again!

the cheap ones work just as well the key is to hold it so that the steam head is above the hose so that the condensation runs back down the hose and does not spit out onto your cake...even when the fondant dries it has a nice satin sheen to it..I love my steamer.
I think I paid 25.00 at target for a blue and white conair
