Is it a home model or one that is for catering? They work very differently I’ve heard.

my nephews Fiance had one at her shower in March and it wasnt a commercial unit and i felt it was a bit of a fizzer due to size (small) and how it performed.  Love choc fountains btw but was so worried about making a mess on my outfit that i couldnt partake too much so make sure you have lots of napkins on hand

I have a non-commercial model and it works well. I have used it for many parties and got a great response from my guests. You want to make sure that you use canola oil (other oils may work too) to prevent the chocolate from being too thick. It helps a lot!! Something that I had to learn the hard way when I first used it. My only disappointment about it was that I felt like it did not have a consistent flow at the last tier like the commercial models do.

We have a non-commercial one at work for events, and it sucks because it’s a cheap little one. Can you ask what brand it is and google some reviews?

I Googled a lot of reviews, and ended up with a Rival CFF5 Chocolate Fondue Fountain.  It was one of the few at a reasonable price that got good reviews.  It has a large capacity–5 lbs. of chocolate, instead of the 2-3 that most other home fountains have.  The only problem is that it’s a discontinued model.  However, I was able to find one on eBay that had only been used once.
