ACME table top melter NITRO high volume modification!!
does anyone use the ACME unit? heres a GREAT MODIFICATION (ill make a you tube video one day to show)
remove the light bulbs ( do not use the unit to melt and temper in) the acme will be used to just COOL the chocolate and not melt it.
what I did is cut the plastic scraper half way down a V shape into the blade allowing chocolate from one side to pass thru to the other ( this way BOTH sides are full not just one)
you need a way to melt chocolate before putting in the acme unit. If you have a 50 pound meltor you just take the broken temper chocolate and put in the acme allowing it to fill both sides 3/4. put in shredded seed (use a cheese grater)
as you seed and temper ( no need to worry about it heating up because the lights are out)
you will eventually have it tempered with BOTH sides filled with temper chocolate. Pour a few molds, add 10% more chocolate and half cup seed let mix and keep going. you can make chocolate NON STOP as long as you have the pre melted chocolate available.
You can easily make 50 pounds in about an hour. ( I do it for small batches)
using the acme to MELT, temper, Melt temper is waist of time..
Ill have a video of this soon its amazing how much more you can make.
