I just wanted to let you know that the Khymos marketplace is operative. You can now shop books, hydrocolloids, thermometers, scales, whippers, syringes, tubes, squeeze bottles, knives and more directly from this site. I’ve selected products that should be of particular interest for amateur cooks and professional chefs that are intersted in molecular gastronomy, molecular cooking and popular food science. The marketplace is powered by


  1. Note that this varies from product to product! Some of the sellers do actually ship to Europe. The easiest way to find out is to add the product to your shopping cart and proceed to check out. Here you’ll get a list of the products with clickable links to the sellers where you can read about their shipping policies. But yes – I agree that this is not an optimal solution for those of us who live outside America. I’ve worked a little on a similar marketplace from the German branch, but also there some of the sellers only ship to Germany and Austria.

    Anyhow I hope that the list of chemicals in particular can illustrate that it is not always necessary to go for the highly priced “brands”. Health stores for instances sell a number of hydrocolloids, but often you’ll have to read the fine print to find out what you’re actually buying.

  2. Hi all, i have loads of information and suppliers details for the uk if you are finding it hard to source ingredients and additives etc…
    and im sure will post outside the UK.

    Many thanks
