    Has anyone used (or heard about) the Rev 2 (approx $400) tempering machine? Thinking about getting one and this looks like it could work for me, if it works well. Any suggestions?

    Yeah, I've got an older version. Nice little machine, but small, only holds maybe 2 lbs, but there are ways of stretching this amount. It's good for a lot of things, but beware of those hot humid days in summer, unless you're in an a/conditioned work room, it won't work well.
    I've had mine now for about 5 years, no complaints yet!

    Thanks for the input. I finally found my way to the other forums on this subject. I know most people are concerned about the small amount that it tempers, but I think it will be perfect for me...I was just concerned if it actually tempered the chocolate well enough. Regarding the hot, humid days...NO problem...I'm in Arizona and everyone knows it's a dry heat:lol:
