Best Fondant Extruder on the Market?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

Hello  CC'ers

 

Can anyone provide any insight into what they consider to be the best clay/fondant extruder on the market?

 

I have one of the small black ones (with the red handle) that you have to squeeze and it is a real PITA.

 

Looking forward to hear your feedback.

I actually use a clay extruder I bought at Michael's. It's metal with a crank handle and works really well. It's made by Walnut Hollow and you find it in the sculpy section. With a 40-50% off coupon in runs around $15.00. Lots of discs included. Only thing is you need to warm your fondant first, then it extrudes quite easily!

I like the Makins one. It's green.

I noticed Makins have a plastic one with plastic disks. It's a lot cheaper, do you think it would be just as good?

I got my Makins (the green one) on walmart.com , $17.54 plus tax and free shipment for store pick up, not bad !!

I also have the Walnut Hollow extruder from Michaels and absolutely love it!  I had the Makins first and wasn't impressed - hurt my hand.  The Walnut hollow has a comfy crank handle that works really well and I've extruded fairly stiff fondant and gumpaste through it with no problem.  It also comes in a nice plastic case with little slots for each disc so it keeps everything neat and you can find the disc you need at a glance.  With a Michaels coupon, it was a great deal.

HAHAHAHA!  I was just watching the premiere of "The Next Great Baker" on my DVR and Chad was using the Walnut Hollow extruder to put the strings on the guitar! That's so funny because I just posted about that extruder on here!

Just want ed to let you know that I purchased the Makins clay extruder from amazon.com and used it for the first time yesterday.

 

It was such a breeze to use and I am happy with the purchase!! thumbs_up.gif

 

Thanks again

I have 3 different kinds, the walnut hollow one is my favorite.

I love my walnut hollow extruder. I have only used it a few times. The only thing I noticed it that on some of the fondant, there are black streaks, like oil. Does this happen to anyone else?

That has happened to me too. I'd also be interested in to know if this happens regularly. I tried to wipe down the inside with a tissue, but it still happens.

Something like this happened to me with the Makins-green-extruder...I cleaned it many times and it happens again. I will replace it but now I'm doubting to get the same brand if it's going to happen again.
