Cooling Tables & Heating Tables

In the candy making industry, temperature is extremely important to the finished product. Things like chocolate may need to be cooled down, while other materials, like peanut brittle, are easier to form when warm. If you really want to make sure that your sugary treats are tasty, consistent temperatures are key.

The candy making equipment at Savage Bros. is specially made with these important considerations in mind. Our heating and cooling tables are constructed out of stainless steel and contain unique water-jacketed plates that allow water to flow underneath the table, ensuring consistent temperatures across the entire surface.

4 Necessary Machines for Any Confectioner

If you’re in the candy making business, you know it can be hard work. There are many ways to make delectable candies, but not all confectioner techniques are created equal. If you want to work smarter, not harder, it’s all about equipping yourself with the right confectionery equipment.

If you want to take your chocolate making skills to the next level, you definitely need to add these 4 machines to your shop:

Chocolate Enrober

EnroberCovering bits of candy and other items in chocolate by hand can take a long time if you want to do it right. If you have high demands, or if you want to expand your candy making business, you should definitely check out the chocolate enrober.

This state-of-the-art piece of candy making machinery is able to coat a variety of materials in delicious chocolate from top to bottom. Easy-to-use touchscreen panels provide you with complete control from start to finish. Drench candy in chocolate, shake away excess chocolate, and provide each piece with special decorative details. The heated water-jacketed chocolate reservoir with agitator is built on roll-out casters for easy cleaning and changeover.

Chocolate Melter

Chocolate MelterIf you’re making hundreds or thousands of pieces of candy for sale each day, melting small batches of chocolate can really slow you down, compromising the efficiency of the entire process. Making sure melted chocolate is always on hand is a must, and the chocolate melter can help you do that.

This massive chocolate melter has a 2,000 pound capacity and melts chocolate fast with an internal water pump. Simply plug it in, fill the jacket with water, and add milk, dark, or white chocolate. A 24-hour overnight warming cycle ensures the chocolate is ready when you arrive in the morning, and the entire machine is specially designed to feed warm chocolate into a temperer, enrober, or depositor. Add a pump for transfer or a magazine block melter to automatically feed chocolate bars into the machine.

Depositing Pump

Depositing PumpCreating consistency can be difficult in a small candy making shop. Not only do you want your candies to look exactly alike, but using variable amounts of chocolate can even end up costing you more. Keep everything consistent with the depositing pump.

The dual head nozzle provides you with your choice of spray or drizzle function. Create a uniform chocolate mist or ooze the perfect amount of chocolate out of the drizzle head. The controls feature a cycle counter that automatically stops when the proper amount of chocolate has been deposited. It integrates a melter, pump, panning head, and control in a single unit. The all-in-one design and customization of this machine allows you to create a piece of equipment that will make depositing chocolate simple and easy.

Boxed Chocolate Packer

Chocolate PackerVarious baking equipment and chocolate machines are a must, but you still want your chocolates to be handmade. That means packing boxes by hand, but you can waste a lot of time wandering around the shop, looking for boxes, packaging materials, and the right candies.

The one-person packer carousel is the best way to streamline the packaging process. This deceivingly simple box only takes up 12 square feet of floor space, but it can hold 180 pounds or 36 standard 5-pound bulk boxes of chocolate. You can pack 48 1-pound boxes per hour thanks to the organization of compartments and 9 revolving shelves. You’ll save an unbelievable amount of time and money by using this machine.

If you’re ready to take your candy making business to the next level, call Savage Bros. Co. to learn how we can customize confectionery machines just for you!

5 Fun Facts About Candy

Candy has quite the history as an incredibly popular and incredibly delicious force in the global diet. Whether you’re a candymaker or simply a fan, we think you’ll appreciate these fun candy factoids.

Old English Candy Store

Americans Eat More Candy Than Citrus, Rice, and Fish (24 lbs per capita in comparison to citrus (20 lbs) rice (21 lbs) and fish(16 lbs).

Candy is king, and you don’t have to be a candy lover to know it. The number’s don’t lie, Americans love candy a whole lot   more than other foods, which means that there’s no better time to be in the candy business than now. Each year, Americans consume about 24 lbs of candy per capita. Citrus comes in a t 20 lbs per capita, rice at 21 lbs, and fish at 16lbs[1]. Not quite as bad as Germany, which consumes twice as much[2]!

Confectioners Couldn’t Keep Up with Military Demand for Candy During WWII

At the time it was believed that candy kept soldiers alert in the perils of war, so the military regularly included treats that we still know and love today in their rations. Candies like Tootsie Rolls and M&M’s can survive just about any weather condition, making them the perfect fit for soldiers fighting in a wide range of weather conditions[3].

Cotton Candy was Invented by a Dentist

In what is perhaps one of the greatest ironies of our time, Dr, William J. Morrison, a dentist from Nashville, Tennessee co-invented the cotton candy machine[4], a wonderful piece of candy making machinery that produced the fluffy goodness we know as cotton candy, then aptly named ‘Fairy Floss’.

Candy Sales Never Appear to Be Affected by Recessions

In the best of times and the worst of times sweet tooths everywhere need soothing, which is why economic downturn is no match for the candy industry. Researchers speculate that people are more likely to find comfort in small expenses during recession to reduce the stress of financial tensions[5].

Candy Corn is the Top-Selling Candy Every Year

Candy corn, originally referred to as ‘chicken feed’ (yeah, not so appealing) is a classic Halloween favorite, and though it seems like it only get sold once a year, this old-time delight is still a top seller. In fact, if Brach’s lined up every kernel of candy corn they sell, the line would wrap around the Earth 4 times– quite astronomical for a seasonal treat[6].

If you’re in the business of candy making you’re in one of the most fascinating, fun, and delightful industries in the nation (and probably the world). Don’t forget to celebrate your candy-making prowess with the latest candy-making machinery and confectionary equipment from Savage Bros!
