Hi everyone!Anyone have any ideas what type of panning machine ?Looking around 20 kg capacity,so not huge.Union standard make a few.There is also one from vantage house,decobassina,made in Italy,this one has a gas jet underneath to caramalise the nuts,sounds handy.Havent seen any of these machines so would be buying unseen.Need to have a well made one.Thanks!

Hi – I have some experience of panning machines having purchased the Decobassina type and the COMFIT from SELMI (who we represent in the UK). My view is that while the Decobassina type has a gas jet, it is difficult to adjust – and the machine is supplied with very sparse instructions and no training. It also does not have a sprayer to apply the chocolate to the item being coated. You need to spend a long time using trial and error to understand how the machine must be used. 


The COMFIT does not have a heater – but is supplied with a sprayer (that must be connected to a compressor) – SELMI also includes a one day training course to teach you how the machine should be used – and how to create a shiny end product without the use of gum arabic.


If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
