I guess it depends on where you live... I still see them in Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and JoAnn Fabrics here in KY.




Must be a Southern thing because I live in Tennessee. Have never seen it at Michaels though.

The Michaels in the San Antonio have discontinued. They were also wanting $30 for the thing. They do still have the extra disks in some stores. I will have to go back.

I haven't seen it in a Hobby Lobby either for a minimum of 6 months. Can't remember the price.

If I am not wrong the one they probably had is the original one. It cost around that much, but it came in a plastic case to store it, really cute.
The newer one, is the same extruder but it doesnt have the case where to store it. I guess they where trying to bring the price down.

I know in FLorida is been discontinued in both Michaels and Joanns Fabrics.
I have no idea why, since is one of the best selling products that the company that created has. God knows..

Just ordered one from amazon.com for $16.95, I have not been able to find this one in my area an the one I have from Michael's really kills my hand after a while. Hope this one is much better.

I ordered mine from Edna, I think Christmas night.

They arrived on Thursday. She makes sure nothing will happen when she boxes those puppies up. It took a solid 10 minutes to get open.

I'm thrilled and will be ordering more from her.

No, but I think it has a disk small enough to get it done.

I  know this is a super old post but I'm wondering if anyone out there who uses an extruder could answer a couple questions. Can you make a rope (or whatever) only as long as the extruder or can you add to it before cutting the fondant off to make something longer? If you can't make them longer how do you join the ends together to try to make it look seamless?

 

Thanks.

Depending on the extruder, you should be able to open the back and add more fondant as needed. I can do this with my makins.
