Let me first say, I purchased this fountain after reading great reviews. The fountain was to be the main attraction at my son's graduation party. When it arrived, the fountain looked impressive and worked great for the first 1.5 hours of the party. I had a friend watching it to ensure it was taken care of. We avoided any crumbling items since I read those foods can often get stuck. First the motor quit so we left the heater on so guests could dip their items in the base. We ended up turning the heater off since the fountain unit started smoking. It was great while it worked. We were highly disappointed with the situation since we had a lot of food items we ended up throwing out that didn't get used. I returned the fountain for a full credit since I didn't need another fountain for another year (let alone another one I had a bad experience with). A few days later another fountain was shipped that I returned unaccepted. Apparently the initial CS person thought I had requested a replacement! I called and was assured a credit would be refunded. Today I discovered an e-mail message that said a replacement fountain had been sent. I called again about my credit. The CS person went through my account and found where both fountains were returned an nothing had been credited. I am expecting a full refund in 3-5 days. Hopefully, this will resolve my fountain issue. .Read More
It serves the purpose but messy to clean up and not something you want to wait to clean. It got dropped and made a pretty sever dent so it has been discarded.Read More
We always wanted a Chocolate fountain; seemed like a fun trinket appliance to have. I used it for a party of 14. It worked well but the motor is loud. I had it as part of my buffet table which was in the center of the party and the motor was disruptive to the event. If it would be in the corner away from the activity it might be acceptable. To get the chocolate liquid enough I had to add alot of whip cream and coconut oil but then when people used it with strawberries it dripped everywhere on the counter and carpet. Plus the chocolate wasn't that warm. I am not returning it - too much effort and technically it is as advertised. But I wouldn't recommend it as an appliance to own. Get a basic fondue pot much easier, less babysitting, and much cleaner.Read More

This machine was easy to use and easy to clean up. It was a big hit and can't wait to use it again for my next function.Read More
This was a great purchase and served my needs perfectly. To rent one or hire someone to provide a fountain was way over our budget. I would recommend this purchase to anyone looking for a fountain for a small event for up to 20-30 people.Read More
I read alot of reviews on this site and others trying to figure out the right fountain for our needs. I read that they are messy, loud and clog up pretty bad. Honestly, the reviews of chocolate fountains overall almost made me not buy one. Then I came across this one and read the customer reviews. I bought one and it was delivered within the week for $2.95. Anyway, we opened it up and I gave my husband directions on a recipe, he set it up and we had a ball. It's alot quieter than I expected, not silent but not a churning, have to yell across the noise type of hum. Clean up was a breeze and we are ready to do it again next weekend. As I sat with my 3 boys and husband they all were coming up with other uses for the fountain, melted peanut butter, nacho cheese and bbq sauce. Needless to say, I am back online to purchase a second fountain right now.Read More
This worked just perfectly and was a HUGE hit at my son's 11th birthday and my daughter's 8th birthday. Not nearly as messy as I expected, and looked BEAUTIFUL. Cheaper ones my friends have had broke really easily, and more expensive ones I've seen don't look any better, so this one is just right. We used milk chocolate chips (you can use other kinds) melted in the microwave and mixed with some canola oil to make it flow better. Don't be shy about adding the canola oil -- you need it to flow well. About 1/3 to 1/2 cup for 2 pounds of chocolate or so, but you can add more or less depending on the chocolate and how warm it is in the room. Place out of any drafts or you will have chocolate splashes. Be sure to preheat for at least 15-20 minutes before adding chocolate and turning on the motor -- I poured the chocolate in through the top to "prime the pump" and that seems to get it working faster. It's a little messy to clean the base unit since it does have some grooves and you can't immerse it, but the top fountain part and the auger come off easily and are simple to wash. A big hit for us!Read More
I bought this fountain for my wife's birthday party and it was a hit! We heated up 1 cup of heavy cream (to a simmer) in a double boiler and added 24 oz of chocolate chips. The consistency was perfect for the fountain and the guests loved it. Much cheaper than renting one and now we can use it more that once. Clean up was as easy as can be expected for molten chocolate. Note that the instructions say to let it warm up for 3-5 minutes before pouring in the melted chocolate, but I think we should've waited 10 minutes so it was fully warm. It seems to loosen up the longer it was on. All told...great result for not much money at all.Read More
I purchased this after using another fountain before that I was not happy with. I was a little leary about buying another one, but I was having a Halloween party and really needed it. The fountain came two days before the party and I was not able to test it until the actual party. Everythng went just fine. I had to thin the chocolate with cooking oil but after that it was the hit of the party!Read More
