Hello all! I was doing a lot of internet research and came across this website which gave me the best information anywhere on the web. Unfortunately I have not been able to narrow down EXACTLY what I need, so I figure i'll ask the pros! I'm looking for a machine that will let us dip frozen bananas in chocolate. We've got a small concession trailer and this is going to be used for fundraising for the school & athletics at different community events. We've got everything under control, except the temperer. Since i'm funding this project I get the final say on what goes. I'm looking at spending a max of 1,000 on a machine. We basically need a machine that will be large enough for us to dip whole bananas, and at the same time it needs to be able to keep chocolate ready to dip for hours at a time... thinking like 6-8 hours at a time. Ease is going to be a big factor, as I will have to teach a few different people how to use the machine. This is what was making me lean towards the Rev line since it only takes a button press! Now I've seen products like the Caloribac that look like something that would work, but the info given on it is so small. I'm not sure how long it could keep the chocolate at the correct temperature. I was looking at the Revolution 2, but the 1.5 pounds sounds soooo small. This would be ok IF it allows the addition of chocolate without shutting down the whole operation (I forgot the term of adding new chocolate to already tempered chocolate, ahh!) Then I see R2D2, the AMDC? Machine... I am really confused as what would be the BEST machine for this operation. At this time were not really sure what the output would be during the day, but we're hoping a minimum of 50-100 bananas. I've seen a lady at a flea market that uses a crock pot to dip strawberries and bananas!... Now, for anyone that has done something like this before, just how many bananas do you think we could get covered with a pound of chocolate, with one dip? What is the best chocolate, i've read dark is the best for using with bananas, but I happen to be more of a milk chocolate fan. If anyone knows of a good chocolate wholesaler, please send a message my way! We have one in mind but we're surely open to suggestions! Thanks to all that help!
