There’s no shortage of Wonka-esque molten chocolate flows in the factory: between the four melangers, two temperers, and dozens of pans that ferry the chocolate between them, we have innumerable surfaces with luscious chocolate coatings that we need to scrape clean. My quest for the ideal implement (a treasure trove of innuendo if there ever was one) began when I emptied a melanger for the first time back in July–it’s a messy business at best–and thought, there’s got to be a better way!
Our silicone savior arrived just in the nick of time for our new molds and the transition to the fill-and-scrape method of tempering, which was one small scrape for a man, but one giant leap for our company. We’re still searching for the perfect squeegee–just an inch longer and a tad sturdier, please!–but for now, these silicone squeegees from OXO are pretty awesome, so we ordered fifteen more. And…if you put them all together in a hotel pan after doing the dishes…you get a Scrapeasaurus Rex…rawr…which is rad!
Because we’re actually dinosaurs.
