Chocolate Dude Tabletop Tempering Machine


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

The machine noise level is low. There is a fan attached to the motor that comes on when the motor is on, the motor turns the stainless steel bowl. The paddle is stationary. There is also a cooling fan that comes on to cool the chocolate. Either the heating lites are on or the cooling fan is on for better temperature control. You manually set the temperature.

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.
