It is so difficult to find good professional chocolate molds. I just ordered molds from a web site here in Canada (and a book), from http://www.chocolat-chocolat.com
Over one thousand different molds, and boxes, and books. Great find!
Anyone tried the new honey milk couverture by Callebaut?

I can vouch for chocolat-chocolat myself. Ordered 6 Belgium-type moulds from them and they delivered promptly and without hassle to Australia. HUGE selection as well

[:)]Without question Chocolat-Chocolat ( http://www.chocolat-chocolat.com ) is the place to get the largest assortment of molds from VERY famous moldmakers in Belgium, Italy, China & France.

They also have gift boxes from the ornate to the simple. From the flashy to understated elegance. From velvet and wood to cardboard. Books on chocolate are a specialty and accessories galore can be found.

Renee and Lorraine are always eager to help and expedite the order. In the past year I have added nearly 50 different polycarbonate molds to my collection.

The transactions are easy, transparent and user friendly. They ae in Montreal and we are in California. Even in the dead of winter, today they are at 3F and we are at 73F, ordering is a snap and timely.
Give them a try, you will be happy.

Hi, I am a newcomer here. I am so glad to find this useful forum.

Like mauice, I have problem in ordering chocolate molds in web as many of them don't ship to Asia. Does anyone here suggest some other sellers to me? Many thanks!

Hi debc, have you tried e-mailing direct. I live in Australia and a lot of the web-based ordering from chocolate sites says that they will not deliver to Australia but when I e-mail them directly, they are happy to organise a courier (for example, chocolat-chocolat mentioned above delivered moulds to me)

Tomeric in upstate Buffalo, NY, right on the Canadian border, has a great selection of non-polycarbonate moulds, custom moulds and does carry a selection of Chocolate World from Belgium. For some reason they dont include a $3.50 charge per mold into their base price, but state it in small print on a general page as ". . . **Prices do not include $3.50 per mold import freight charge**". I have trouble with hidden fees.

Chocolat-Chocolat.com in Montreal, has as an extensive heavy detailed polycarbonate moulds fom Chocolate World, PLUS they have an extensive line of Italian, Chinese and French moulds from VERY famous makers. That probably doubles or triples your choices.

Freight rates are surprisingly and basically the same.

I can provide individuals my personal take on both companies by email.

One of the largest selections of chocolate molds is http://www.jkvnl.com where they have over 1,000 different molds in stock. Unfortunately, they do not have a print catalog but unlike many other online vendors, they do have bigger blowups of their pictures so you can get a better idea as to what they look like.

They can also make molds to order in polycarbonate. This is of course, a little on the expensive side $4,000 but for custom molds, this is one of the better prices available.

Hope this helps,

Hi Art,RE: Santa Cruz,CA USA distributor

Any idea what percentage of the heavy polycarbonate moulds are in stock and carried by the USA distributor? Also do you know what the std heavy polycarbonate mould price would be in singles? [8D]=California Sunshine

Also any idea how fast their turnaround is for shipping stock items?

Thanks Much
Mike

PS: The Mackenzies have a great chocolate shop in Santa Cruz, CA. Their website is http://www.mackenzies-chocolates.com They are open Mon - Fri
The JKV pricing PDF was automatically sent from Ian Mackenzie email. It is 1.5mb and would be happy to forward it. Polycarbonate moulds are priced $19.50 - $21.00 US. I don't have any idea yet if there are any added charges besided freight.

So questions remaining are:
1. Any added charges
2. Who are the makers of the moulds - most appear to be in the style of Chocolate World, but aren't numbered as such
3. Is the distributor fully stocked
4, Are there any minimums

BeckersChocolate:

Sorry, I do not know how much they have here in stock domestically. I found them through a well known chocolatier that I know as that is where he buys a lot of his molds.

Unfortunately, for my purposes, I am in need of custom polycarbonate molds that will fit our molding line. I asked if they could make molds for the various molding lines and they said they could not. So, for pre-fab molds they may be a good resource but unfortunately, they will not work for what we want to do (at least for right now.)

I'm guessing that chocolat chocolat get their moulds from other sources, France, italy etc. I'm trying to find a good range of 70g bar moulds, quite thin particularly but can't find any anywhere. If anyone knows of where i can look i'd be very happy.
