Best Fondant Extruder on the Market? - Page 2

post #16 of 25

I have used several of the tiny clay extruders you get at Michaels and Hobby Lobby, but I saw this extruder at last year's ICES and I had to have one!  Now, I don't know what I would do without it!!

The walnut hollow extruder is the best one that I've used.

I have the Walnut Hollow one as well and it happens on mine too. I've tried everything but it eventually keeps putting that black all over my fondant. Might be the rubber grommet inside? That also deteriorated pretty quickly during the first half of my project and I had to put a new one in. I personally think it's really difficult to crank and it hurts my hand. I guess I'll try warming the fondant first like another poster suggested. Otherwise I'm looking for a new extruder.

Huh. I had the same problem with my Walnut Hollow extruder but blamed it on user error. I just assumed that I was doing a really bad job of cleaning the previous royal blue color I used out if the barrel.

I still use mine constantly and I still love it!  I now have 2, the original, and new big-daddy size.  It make extruding fondant so easy.

I have one of these. I absolutely love it! Norm and Zane of The Sweet Life Bakery used this in a class that they were teaching . Aft I saw what I could do with it and how easy it is to use, I knew I had to have it. Well worth the money.

I read numerous threads here on CC about how to make the fondant work best in the extruder.

 

Warm up slightly and knead in shortening were the only tips I found. I tried this with my little red/black one.

I still got rough torn edges on my rope.  I must have missed something else.:ouch:

Here is a video of a homemade electric extruder using a drill. I'd recommend going to about the one minute mark :-)

Are the Makin or Walnut Hollow extruders food safe? I apologize if this has been answered before. I couldn't find the answer.
