Old Antique Chocolate molds – Are they Safe?

Old cake mold, cookie mold, ice cream mold and chocolate mold for sale unique gift

 

Old cast Iron cake mold, Pewter Springerlie cookie mold, old pewter ice cream mold and old steel and tinned chocolate mold.

Recently a customer emailed and asked – “Is my antique metal chocolate mold safe to mold chocolate in?”  The answer – Yes absolutely, if it is a chocolate mold. Chocolate molds are made with stamped steel either tinned (before WWII) or nickel clad (after WWII).   Both of these processes were done to protect the steel from rust and line the mold with a nonporous surface to help the chocolate release.  (The Steel is similar to the material our pots and pans are made of.)  I have seen many molds listed as chocolate when they are in fact ice cream molds, barley candy/clear toy, cookie molds or even cast iron cake molds.  In the picture above you can see four of the many old molds that have been listed at auctions and various other places as a chocolate mold only the sitting rabbit on the right is an old chocolate mold.  The lesson – make sure what you have is a chocolate mold.  Check out our FAQ page for more info.
