Chocolate Dude Tabletop Tempering Machine
Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques
I would like to add some information concerning this machine. It is made out of melomine, (particle board with a plastic coating). I am now using a better grade of melomine. It has a laminated coating on both sides, like they use on counter tops. Yes they are made in my shop. After you set the temperature for 110 and the chocolate reaches 110 you then set it for 87 not 80. Either the heater lites are on or the fan is on. This makes for a better temperature control of the chocolate. The temperature probe is threaded through the paddle and is close to the bottom on the bowl. We will be at the Colorado Chocolate Festival in denver Colorado May 7 & 8, where we we wil demostrating them. I am a small busines and I don't want to go to assembly line type construction. The only machines I have had to repair were two damaged in shipment by FedEx. Hope this helps.
