yes i agree the hand pump kills your hand after awhile and mine broke within 4 months of purchasing it.i use the screw type and its much better.i dont know the name of the brand, but i purchased it from globalsugarartHTH
when i bought my molds and isomalt they were also selling a silcone 'boat' thing that is used to pour the isomalt.i havent had time yet to try my isomalt/molds. so i cant give anymore info on how they work.but maybe you can look online for the silicone boat. whats nice about it - it has a spout and looks easy to handle melted sugar.HTH
