If lug this machine out once a year, you might well end up hating it and regret the purchase.

The cycle time is 20 minutes, so if you run out of tempered chocolate, you will have to wait that long for another batch; there is no provision for trickle-feeding.

The only thing the manufacturer could recommend was another baffle (at my own expense), with no guarantee that this would actually address the problem.

Tempering chocolate is one of the hardest things to do; even experienced professionals will fail at this task from time to time. There are machines that will do this, but they cost 4 figures. At less than $400, anyone who has an electrical outlet in the kitchen and can press two buttons can have perfectly tempered chocolate in about 20 minutes. Even the klutzy will be successful.

The most important feature of this machine is that the level of temper produced by this gadget is absolutely perfect, and is identical to the chocolate I temper by hand. It has separate settings for white, milk, or dark chocolates. I use one at work, and no longer have to temper chocolate for other employees. Mechanically, the machine operates flawlessly (an important fact, since the bowl rotates continuously whenever the machine is on). Operation is simple, since it has instructions printed right on the machine. The temper cycle is computer controlled, so you do not really need to know how it is done; you just push a couple of buttons. Also, it will operate by itself once you press the buttons; tempering by hand requires your full attention for at least half an hour. With this thing, you can get it going and do something else for a few minutes, which is extremely important in a professional kitchen.

There are some minor drawbacks. It has several pieces that you assemble, so be careful that you do not lose any when you break down the machine to wash it. The capacity is 1 1/2 pounds; this sounds like a lot, but once you get into it, that pound and a half will get used up awfully fast. The cycle time is 20 minutes, so if you run out of tempered chocolate, you will have to wait that long for another batch; there is no provision for trickle-feeding.

This is a really great machine. I've had mine for many years now, and it's given me great results every time. The design is pretty easy to use, and deals well with all the chocolate one is likely to get all over it. I would like it more if it had a bigger capacity, and if the baffle clip was curved instead of flat on the bottom-- to help feed chocolate instead of trapping it in that dead corner. And the machine's a bit loud. But it works wonderfully!

All that said, working with chocolate-- and a machine like this-- are NOT for the casual cook. Chocolate is fussy; if the air temperature is excessively warm or cold, or it's too humid (like most kitchens can be), or your molds aren't warmed, or your dipping centers are too cold, you can't blame the machine! This machine makes tempering chocolate a snap, but it still takes practice to get consistent results. If lug this machine out once a year, you might well end up hating it and regret the purchase. But if you're willing to invest the time to practice all the aspects regularly (even just filling the mold and re-melting the chocolate a few times), it's a fantastic tool!

Here's a few tips: It's possible to work faster (and longer) using pre-melted chocolate (as long as it's melted but not overheated). If you're starting a new batch, just pour in melted chocolate in the feed side while running it in "melt" mode and then temper as usual. Once it's tempered, as you're using it, you can refill melted chocolate in the feed side, just be careful it's a little at a time (mind the meter on the machine doesn't max out or you'll have to re-temper). Once the meter rights itself back in the middle (and stays there), you can resume.

I bought this machine expecting great things. I have had problems with the machine stalling during the tempering process. I have had many conversations with the company, and they even replaced the first one. I am still having trouble. Once in a while, it works as expected, but more often than not, it stalls causing me to start all over again. I just finished a batch of Easter eggs which have a bloom on the surface because, after 4 tries at restarting, I just gave up and dipped the eggs. I may go back to the old fashioned way of tempering. Although it's a pain, at least it produces a nice looking dipped candy.

Ilike the machine, but not as user friendly as I thought it would be. I am having trouble with the bowl scraper area, the chocolate is not melting from front to back it stays where I put the chocolate to start out with.

I have used this machine for over a year now and love it. I have made some gorgeous chocolate pieces and wow friends and family with hand-made chocolates that really look like they came from a gourmet chocolate shop. It's easy to set up, easy to clean, and doesn't take up a ton of space. It has a large enough capacity for my needs, and has worked flawlessly since the first use. There are a few quirks: the spatula doesn't fit perfectly, but this doesn't matter at all. It just looks a little strange. Also, you must temper at least a half a pound or so, or the chocolate that's melted won't reach the probe that detects the chocolate's temperature. Other than that, it's a great little machine that creates a temepered chocolate that is glossy and snappy without any of the headache of tempering by hand. Prices very though; I've found new ones for quite a bit less on Ebay.
