Bretzeli cookie machine

Anyone know where I can get a Bretzeli cooking machine? I had these wonderful home made cookies last week in Switzerland and fell in love, there was a machine there, but since it's electric I didn't want to take a chance that a converter would work. AS well, if you have any recipes that would be appreciated as well.

    For recipes, you'll need to post a request on the Home Cooking board.

    Good luck!

    1. I did a bit of googling for you

      Jura makes a bretzeli/brazeli/bricelet maker. The info on their Quebec distributor is here:

      If all else fails you could always use a pizzelle maker, since they seem to be pretty much the same machine. Those should be a bit easier to find.

        Other substitutes could be a krumkake iron or a waffle cone machine.

          thanks, I have contacted the edika site and am waiting for a reply. The pizzelle maker is a bit different, they make a solid cookie whereas the bretzeli is more lacey, by this I mean you can see through them. The other machines produce a thicker cookie.
          thanks for the help.
