Ever wondered how chocolatiers cover fruits, nuts and other delicious goods with chocolate so perfectly? It’s through an original, artisan method known as Panning, whereby centres (such as fruit and nuts) are placed in a rotating drum to build even layers of chocolate on them.
The centers are continuously tumbled in the pan, which creates the friction needed for the chocolate to be evenly distributed. Over time, the chocolate cools and more chocolate is applied until an ideal chocolate ratio-to-centre is achieved.
At Vanrooy, we are proud to stock a range of Chocolate Panning Machines, with the most recent addition being The Choco Panner.
Complete with a robust stainless steel construction, this bench-top panning machine is perfect if you’re on the hunt for a high quality coating machine that is cost effective and efficient. Even better, it is suitable for at-home or commercial use as it uses single phase power.
Key features of the machine include its simplicity, removable agitating ribs, sleek stainless steel design and variable speed options. The Choco Panner can also hold up to 11 litres of product per batch and is supplied with a separate air blower, allowing for increased access and ease of movement. The machine is built in the USA and available for pick-up at Vanrooy Head Office, or it can be shipped anywhere in Australia and New Zealand.
So there you have it. The answer to anything perfectly coated in chocolate is a mighty fine chocolate panning machine. Be sure to let us know if you have any questions on these machines and how they can assist you!
