Chocolate Melters/Chocolate Warmers
What's the difference between a
and a chocolate tempering machine?
A chocolate tempering machine is fully automated, whereas a chocolate melter/warmer requires you to manually go through the steps to bring up the temperature, then lower the temperature, and then maintain the temperature. When using a melter/warmer, it's absolutely necessary to utilize a chocolate thermometer for temperature accuracy, and you must stir the chocolate.
When using a tempering machine, the machine automatically reads and adjusts the temperature for you and continuously stirs the chocolate.
For small batches of chocolate when making candy or for dipping smaller items, we recommend the ChocoVision or ACMC Tempering Machines. These machines are designed for melting and maintaining small batches of both real chocolate (bringing the chocolate into temper and holding in temper) or compound chocolate (at working temperature). Some people temper their chocolate in the tempering machine, then transfer it to the warmer (below) that holds up to 20 lbs. of chocolate because with economically priced tempering machines their bowls are rather shallow in depth, making it difficult to dip large items such as frozen bananas, ice cream bars or pretzel rods.
For larger batches of chocolate when making candy or for dipping larger items, we have one reasonably priced solution. The Stainless Steel Soup Kettle will melt and hold at temperature for long periods of time.
Stainless Steel Soup Kettle
Okay, so you're probably asking, "what in the world is this Soup Kettle doing on Chocoley's website?"
We have searched high and low, spoken with chocolate professionals from coast to coast and received recommendations from chocolate dipping pros.
Next, we tested this baby in our own kitchen and quite frankly, we're impressed.
While definitely not perfect and clearly not designed for chocolate, this is the "food warmer" with the most positive attributes we could find. The biggest draw back is lack of thermostatic temperature control and settings. Our solution includes a high quality digital candy thermometer to make chocolate candy making easy with incredible results
Even when using a chocolate melter/warmer, it's absolutely necessary to utilize a chocolate thermometer for temperature accuracy, and you must stir the chocolate.

Double Boiler Insert
We always suggest using a double boiler to melt your Chocoley Chocolate, but if you don't already have one, finding one can be a daunting task.
We were so excited when we found this clever non-stick insert that conveniently will turn just about any 1 to 3 quart pan into a double boiler with an 8 cup capacity (9-1/2" diameter by 4-3/4" height).
Get real, you just get the insert!!! The pan, whisk, chocolate, strawberries and other stuff in the pictures is not included at this low price.
Now that you know about chocolate melters/warmers, is one right for you? Or, do you need to learn more about tempering machines?
