post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
I am so done with wilton, and I am looking to throw out all I have and switch. My area is big on wilton and ck colors, but I will have to travel for or order Americolor. Is it worth the trip???

Of those three, Americolor. I despise Wilton's colors, and I've never used CK. Chefmaster is also a good choice, but I use Americolor almost exclusively.

I normally use AmeriColor, but I do have some CK colors in my shopping basket. I'll let you know if I am happy with them.

I'm curious, what is it that you don't like about Wilton? It's the only thing I have used due to availability and not knowing any better (I'm just a newbie). icon_smile.gif

And what is it that you like about Americolor? Perhaps I will start switching too! LOL!

I've used all of the above. I love Americolor when I need a true color. Crystal Colors powdered is great as well. CK is fine. Chefmaster is fine. I really have no issues with Wilton when I'm mixing colors, and a few of them I love such as Wilton "Delphinium."

I'm a newbie to caking. So I've only used Wilton and just recently used Americolor for the first time. Hands down I like the Americolor better. One because the colors do seem to be more true colors. And second I like the fact they come in little squeeze bottles which makes for no mess when getting the color out. I hate having to dig out the Wilton colors with toothpicks! I always end up make a mess with the Wilton ones.

Wilton is Kosher and Halal certified. I am not sure about the others.

Also in numerous countries Wilton use 'approved' ingredients whereas many of the ingredients in Americolor are not permitted for sale in these countries.

Some smaller shops may import them and sell them but they are not to be sold as a food product.

Personally I like chefmaster (we cannot get all the colours imported and sugarflair (UK)

I see chefmaster has brought out a range of natural colors. I would like to try them.

Americolor is the way to go. Although I haven't used the Chefmaster one. In fact, I've never even heard of it before!

Chefmaster is my favorite.. You use very little and never have to wait for the color to intensify. It's the only color I've used that you can get red or black instantly and and no bitter or bad taste.

I use both Wilton and Americolor. I honestly like both. They have different colors and I like variety.

Is it just me, or does anyone else have a problem getting a true, rich, dark purple with Americolor? I love this product and this is the only color I seem not to be able to produce.
