Chocolate Fountain

A chocolate fountain is a lot of fun. Every really classy party has one and if you have been considering hosting a party, why not get one for the special event? A chocolate fountain not only looks good and is a great ice breaker, this is built in dessert and everyone will enjoy it. This is something that you can take out not only for parties but also on special occasions and even the holidays. A chocolate fountain could become a family tradition that you all look forward to year after year!

If you don’t know that you will use a chocolate fountain enough to justify buying one, you may want to consider renting one. A lot of catering companies and rental companies will allow you to rent a chocolate fountain for a few hours for next to nothing! If you go with a catering company they may also supply the chocolate as a part of the rental agreement, which will allow you to save time and money!

If you know that you would really like a chocolate fountain, you can buy one. There are many different makes and models out there to choose from. Your biggest choice is going to be to choose whether or not you want a commercial or residential use fountain. The residential chocolate fountain units are generally much more affordable and can often be found for as little as $30.

With the home use chocolate fountain you’ll generally be looking at something that is 13 to 26 inches tall. If you are going for the dramatic look, you will want to go with one of the taller machines as the taller the chocolate fountain is, the more dramatic it will look! Some of the machines are very basic while others have digital displays, removable bowls, and they are made of stainless steel in some cases. Some of the larger home use chocolate fountains will hold 6-7 pounds of chocolate at a time.

The commercial chocolate fountains also range in size from just 22 inches tall to more than 58 inches tall! These are going to hold a lot more chocolate, they will usually be stainless steel, the bowls will be removable, and usually they come with skewers. The commercial chocolate fountains usually are much easier to clean and they also come with more powerful motors and they usually have a good warranty with them.

Because commercial chocolate fountains are able to hold more chocolate and are better made, they are usually more expensive. Generally speaking, commercial prices start around $500 and they go up into the thousands of dollars. The great thing about buying commercial is that you know that you have a product that is going to last and last.

If you aren’t sure about buying your chocolate fountain and you decide to rent the first time around, if you like it you will have a bit of experience of what you did and did not like about the unit that you used. Just allow for your need in terms of chocolate and size help guide you when looking at all your options, because there are a lot of them. Also allow for your budget to be your guide, because you don’t have to spend thousands or even hundreds of dollars to get a chocolate fountain that will work perfectly for your needs.

While there are a lot of choices, you shouldn’t be intimidated by all of the options in front of you. If you are trying to be thrifty, choose a fountain that holds a little less chocolate and is not quite as tall as these are the things that definitely add to the overall price.
