I've started making dairy free cheese for cafes. Similar to whisking a sauce for 5 minutes. Ive tried scaling up using a bamix stick blender with large Raymond Blanc non stick pot on induction cooker this leads to problems with grey flex appearing in the cheese? Any advise much appreciated.

    If you're having trouble scaling up a recipe, it will help to include the recipe you're using and the procedure you use (edit them into the question). Its easier to see what might be going wrong with more information. I admit I'm pretty confused as to what you're asking, without more context. – Megha Jul 29 '16 at 12:18
  • Yep, there are 100s of different recipes/methods for making various dairy free cheeses. – rackandboneman Jul 29 '16 at 13:23

It is probable that the blades on the bamix stick blender are contacting the interior of the pot occasionally and scratching some of the non-stick coating off, and that's the grey flecks you see in your cheese.

  • This seems very likely - A whisk would be unlikely to chew up the non-stick coating - a toothed blender like that would. Perhaps you need to find a powered whisk, if it's whisking you want, or a heat source that works with a commercial stand mixer and whisk. – Ecnerwal Jul 30 '16 at 1:24
