I took a chance and picked up one of these locally (Wilton Chocolate Melter Deluxe) with a melting/warm/off switch. There are no exact temperature controls on this model, no recipes, but the instructions are pretty straight forward. The worst enemy of chocolate is water, which they casually mention in the instruction phamphlet. I'd like to pass along that even just a tiny sputter of water will cause beautiful, satiny melted chocolate to seize up with no recovery at all possible. So if you want to dip fresh fruit, it absolutely must be 100% dry or your chocolate will harden in seconds. Don't even chance a strawberry hull (the green part) being the least bit wet because even just the smallest droplet of water is all it takes to ruin a whole batch of chocolate.
I found the Wilton to melt the chocolate quickly with continual gentle and slow stirring like an expensive chocolate temperer does, using a wooden paddle-like spoon and NOT metal. After all was smoothly melted (I use only organic non-GMO chocolate) and the control was switched onto "warm", the temperature was held well. Again, stirring gently and frequently helps maintain even temperatures throughout your chocolate mixture which is important in keeping your dipping temperature consistent. I dipped over 70 pieces with just 8 oz. of chocolate the first time out with great results.
Another suggestion to help keep "bloom" at bay (the white streaks that can appear on dark and milk chocolates that does not effect flavor) is to set your dipped chocolates away from any air movement.Read more ›
The chocolate melted quickly and evenly. It kept it smooth and silky, easy to work with. I think the quality of your chocolate will make a difference with its texture, not the machine. I made and dipped turtles for about 3 hours and that little pot was on the whole time. It did a great job!
The handle is sturdy and the switch is a slider button. I didn't have to mess with controls or buttons to keep the heat consistent. It has only a warm or melt mode... I don't need anything else. No problem for me there either.
The pot itself isn't huge, which I liked. I was able to add chocolate as I went and it continued to melt it. It is a nice little machine, which in turn made it easy to use, clean and store. That's really why we never use things again, they're just too hard to ding with.
It would also be a perfect thing to melt butter in. No splashing like in the microwave, just slow continuous heat. I'm sure I'll think of a few more reasons to use this little machine.
This is the real deal! It worked perfectly for me! I'm glad I bought it!
I think the nice thing about this Wilton melter is the warm setting. To use it all you do is preheat it on the melt setting for 5 minutes, then add the chocolate. When the chocolate is at the consistency you want you switch it to the warm setting. It was great. I didn't waste a drop of chocolate and it never hardened. I also didn't have to worry about working fast so the chocolate didn't get hard. You can actually stop if you need to do something while your working.
I have never used a double boiler, so I really can't compare the two. I was a little hesitant to spend the money on this but it seems like a good investment. It was very easy to clean. I dipped marshmallows, pretzels and apples and had no problem. Michael's arts and crafts store also carries the Wilton.
