See why users love their chocolate fountain...
We purchased this machine for our daughter's Sweet 16 party. We were hesitant to have a chocolate fountain because a friend of ours had purchased one, a different model & brand, and ended up throwing it away, it was a disaster. After checking out rentals, it seemed cheaper and more practical to purchase our own. After reading the reviews about the Wilton Pro, we purchased the fountain. It was so easy to use! We followed the manufacturers directions and used the Wilton brand of chocolate which required NO vegetable oil. The chocolate melted easily in the microwave and required 2 bags since it holds up to 4 pounds. It ran smoothly and quietly for hours. It was a big hit at the party and we received so many compliments. Friends and family all want our chocolate fountain too! This machine is amazing and was easy to maintain, including washing of the unit. We honestly cannot wait to use it again, it is simply the best!
Easy to use. Not too difficult to clean just be careful while hand washing the actual unit as to not getting the cord wet. It is recommended to warm your chocolate in the microwave for about 2 minutes prior to pouring it into the fondue fountain. By the way, it will take 2 bags of chocolate to start the fountain to flow! This moderate size fountain was a huge score for our grandchildren at Christmas party! We highly recommend this unit!
You cannot go wrong with this fountain!!! It works great and is a huge crowd pleaser!!! I used it for my small wedding reception. It ran from about 4:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. The flow of the chocolate was perfect all night long. I couldn't have been more happy. I used the Wilton bags of chocolate in it (I used 2 bags=4 pounds). The chocolate tasted awesome and it was easy to melt. It took about 3 to 4 minutes for each bag. It cleaned up easy too! That took maybe 10 minutes. We recently used it again for a small party. I tried to use only 2 pounds of chocolate because we weren't having a lot of people, but it did not work well. You must use 4 pounds of chocolate for this fountain. I am going to use it again soon for my sons' birthday party and I cannot wait. This is an awesome fountain and the price is amazing!
I purchased this fountain for a Halloween party and it was a hit. Everybody loved it. It was very simple to put together. I used the recommended chocolate so I didn't add any oil to it. It ran perfectly. At the beginning it didn't give me a continuous flow but after running for few minutes it was perfect. I used the preheat setting for 20 minutes till I melted the chocolate chips using a double broiler. It took 20 minutes to melt the two bags of chocolate (4 pounds) and once I poured it on the metal plate I changed the setting to flow and it was working great. If stayed on the entire party time almost 6 hours. I love it!
