Using the Chocolate Fountain
- Ensure the Chocolate Fountain is fully assembled then plug into the mains.
- Turn the right switch clockwise to turn the heater on.
- Allow this to warm for approximately 5 minutes before adding the melted chocolate.
- Melt chocolate (approximately 800grms) in a pan or microwave and add 3/4 to 1 cup of vegetable oil (room temperature).
- The chocolate needs to be completely melted and of a thin consistency to allow an easy flow. By using a large spoon you can check the flow before adding the chocolate to the fountain. Dip the spoon in the melted chocolate, then pour the chocolate from the spoon. The chocolate should flow freely, in one continuous line.
- Carefully pour the melted chocolate into the bowl at the base of the Tower. Fill the bowl so the chocolate just covers the guiding pins.
- Turn the left switch clockwise to turn the motion on (motor and heater will be running at the same time). Please note: it may take 2 – 3 minutes for the air bubbles to settle and for the chocolate to flow perfect.
- The type of chocolate you use will determine how smoothly the chocolate flows over the tiers. Good quality chocolate will give a better result as it has a higher percentage of cocoa butter. White chocolate is not recommended as this is difficult to melt successfully.
- Many foods are suitable for dipping in the chocolate. Try fruit, marshmallows, biscuits, wafers. Just use your imagination!
- Other liquids may be added when you are melting the chocolate. Try adding your favorite liqueur. Do NOT add any cold liquids to the fountain. This cold cause the mixture to thicken.
- When the fountain chocolate is dripping, not flowing – The chocolate is too thick, thin with vegetable oil. Do not add cool or cold liquid, this will stop the flow of the fountain.
- When the chocolate is flowing unevenly, not in smooth sheets – The unit is not level. Level the unit so the chocolate is evenly distributed around the tower.
- If the flow is intermittent, interrupted, not flowing properly – Check for chunks of food in the base that may be clogging the chocolate flow, remove any chunks found.
