Frequently Asked Questions, with Answers Q:What is a Chocolate Fountain and how does it work? A:A Chocolate Fountain is a machine that provides a convenient, fun, and unique way to dip various foods into chocolate. Our Chocolate Fountains are 29" tall, 16" diameter stainless steel machines that consist of two basic assemblies: the base and the tower. The base contains a heater, motor, and chocolate reservoir. The tower contains an internal auger for lifting the chocolate. The tower exterior is a series of surfaces over which the chocolate cascades, giving the fountain it's unique shape. When the chocolate is warm and ready to flow, it is lifted by the auger to a bowl at the top. The bowl fills, then the chocolate overflows and falls to completely cover the lower tiers, providing curtains of delightful chocolate for your guest's dipping pleasure! Q: What kind of chocolate do you use? A: We use only our secret aromatic blend of Ghirardelli and other fine chocolates. Your choice of milk, dark, and white chocolate is available.

What do I need to provide? A:What we provide. What you provide. Q:What kind of table works best? A:Our Chocolate Fountains, including chocolate, weigh approximately 100 pounds. A stout, level table with a heavy solid core top is important for proper support and operation. The ideal size is a five foot diameter round table for 360° access, but a standard six foot rectangular table works fine.
