In reading the reviews I have to add a few suggestions. The fountain works great- one just has to know how to properly use it. First of all- forget the oil - it is difficult to get "just the right mixture" and it dilutes the flavor of the chocolate. Everyone should be using Paramount crystals. I know the box says to use oil but do a little research on the internet and you'll see that this is not the best way to go. Paramount crystals are what professionals use to thin out their chocolate when making candy without diluting the taste of the chocolate. Paramount crystals can be found at stores that specialize in making cakes and candies. You mix an 8 oz bag of crystals to 3 lbs of GOOD chocolate and you'll have the perfect chocolate every time. The best chocolate is also found at the same stores. You also must melt the chocolate properly. Make sure the fountain has been turned on to heat for at least 30 mins prior to adding your chocolate. That "dribbling" effect that one reviewer said is called "curtaining". This is when the chocolate flows over a tier and splits open as it flows down. This is mostly caused from air in the center tube where the auger is. The best way to keep this from happening is to stop the fountain and let the air in the auger rise to the top -about 10-15 seconds. You'll see bubbles exit through the chocolate at the top of the fountain. Turn the augar back on and your chocolate should flow nicely; provided you have enough chocolate in the fountain. It takes 3-5 lbs of chocolate to work properly. You also have to make sure you don't scorch or seize the chocolate with over heating before adding to the fountain (scorching) or allowing water to get in the chocolate (seizing). Remember chocolate will melt above 70 degrees.Read more ›

Forget the price, this item is fantastic! We had a party last night (10/8/05) and after dinner, we broke out this fountain and all of our guests went absolutely crazy over this.

First, note that you have to melt the chocolate chips on a double broiler and you have to add some vegetable oil to the chips, then the melted mixture is put into the basin area of the fountain.

The auger style pump flows the melted chocolate to the top and it cascades down the two-tier fountain.

We had strawberries, bananas, pineapple, pretzels sticks, marshmallows, and pound cakes. We used long wooden skewers for the dipping and we even had to add a second batch of chips. Everybody loved it and a lot of them want to borrow it too.

Clean up was not as bad as you would expect. We dumped out the remaining chocolate and the pieces were easily disassembled and cleaned.

I cannot think of any other time that so many guests commented on a single party item like this one. We can't wait for the next opportunity to use it again.

Verified Purchase
I bought this and had it out for our Thanksgiving meal. I knew in advance this thing would be the next breadmaker in our house (meaning the cool thing you use once or twice then put in a counter until it eventually gets sold in a garage sale). But for $50 I figured we'd get the cool points when we had 10 people over for Thanksgiving.

Couple of notes:

- Forget what you think chocolate should flow like. We melted about 4lbs of Hersheys chocolate chips with some vegetable oil to what I would expect to see in fondue and then put it in the machine as directed. The thing started up sounding like a diesel engine. We thought we bought a lemon but the instruction troubleshooting guide kept saying to add more vegetable oil so we did. Eventually we had this stuff pretty "watered" down and the fountain worked and flowed great. Although it probably didn't help its appeal when people saw us pouring tons of vegetable oil into this thing (lots of "wow, gonna be constipated tonight" comments.

- It really is easy to clean and break down and throw in the dishwasher. The hardest thing we had to figure out was what to do with the leftover 3lbs of chocolate in the thing.

- If you do this thing, set it up early and get it going before the party. It has a heater so it'll just run in the background. It will make people want to try it more seeing it the whole time. Especially if they don't have to see you pouring eighty tons of oil into it.

Buy it, it's a nice gadget. Just be aware that it's a ton of chocolate. Strawberries worked best.

WARNING--this product is great and will work exactly like it says IF you use at least 4-5 pounds of chocolate and add all the oil it recommends (don't worry, the chocolate tastes fine with the oil mixed in). If you do not use this amout, it will not sheet/flow properly and will just trickle down. This minimum chocolate amount is not part of the instructions, but can be found on the box on a sticker that the factory must have added after the box was printed. Since a 60 oz (3.75 pound) bag of chips can be purchased at Costo/Sams Club for only about 6.99, even if you end up tossing a lot at the end, it's still a decent value especially for a large gathering.

We have used our fountain twice since it arrived.

The first time was for a baby shower at my office. I was put off about having to melt the chocolate before putting it in the fountain, but found it wasn't that big of a deal if you throw it in a glass dish in the microwave for a minute or two.

We served all kinds of different fruits and pretzels. People loved the concept and had a really good time with it. Even with approx. 25 people attending we ended up with left over chocolate in the bowl, and that was a pain to clean up, as we do not have a dishwasher at work.

The second time we pulled it out at home for my family of four. My children ( ages 8 and 10 ) had a great time trying different things in the fountain- but after about 15 minutes of chocolate covered things everyone had reached sweet tooth capacity. We had marshmellows, pretzels, strawberries and my husband even tried dill pickles. Clean up in the dishwasher was MUCH easier- but the whole process was still alot of hassel for such a small group. We ended up with ALOT of left over chocolate.

For larger groups of people, this is a fun way to serve desert and a great conversation piece. The kids had a wonderful time, but next time we will invite some friends over before setting it up. The oil you have to add to the chocolate makes the consistancy pretty thin- and while that didnt seem to effect it coating the different things, splatters and drips were all over, especially with the kids. But the little bit of mess was well worth it and we will be setting it up for christmas eve when family and friends come over.
