Food Grade Extruder?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I was looking for recommendations on an extruder, and saw a few people use clay extruders -- if this is used for fondant/gum paste only would those be okay? Does anyone have a good recommendation for an extruder?

I never liked the red and black version.

I do have a green clay one that I have used just for fondant/gumpaste.

There is a one that is a larger version, with the squeeze handle, but I can't think of who makes it off the top of my head, and they are very pricey.

The craft store clay extruders don't work well- I have tried.

I use the green Makins clay extruder and it works great! I've not used the black and red one. Just put crisco in the barrel and on your fondant or gum paste and it comes out very smooth. tonedna has a youtube tutorial on how to use it.

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

I have 2 that I use. I have the red & black sugar*craft gun and the clay extruder from Walnut Hollow they sell at Michaels. I like them both. The barrell on the Walnut Hollow extruder is larger so it holds more fondant and I think the fondant comes out a little easier.

I also use the green Makins clay extruder, and I believe that Michaels craft stores now carry it. I bought mine online, but I think the price at Michaels is quite reasonable. After I opened it, I noticed it was lubricated with something, so I washed it and disinfected it really good, and lubricated it with crisco shortening. Great for cake decorating icon_smile.gif

The hair on this gorilla was done with the Makin's extruder. I have arthritis and just the thought of squeezing out all that hair with the trigger type extruder makes my hands hurt. With the Makin's it went lickety split. It goes without saying that any tool one uses for caking is used ONLY for caking no matter what its original purpose may have been.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

Have any of you tried the Wilton one? I picked it up from Michaels when it was on clearance for $8, but I haven't opened the package yet. I noticed no one recommended it, is there anything wrong with it?

I love the Walnut Hollow clay extruder that I got at Michael's and with a 50% off coupon, the price was just right! And it comes in a nice plastic carry case with 20 different discs.
