5 Best Selling Chocolate Fountains

Nostalgia Electrics CFF-986 3-Tier Chocolate Fondue Fountain

The Nostalgia Electrics CFF-986 3-Tier Chocolate Fondue Fountain is the most popular fountain at the moment.

The parts are easy to assemble, but you do need to make sure that they are level.

You can use any chocolate with this, but you need to add oil to regular chocolate to get it running smoothly, one suggestion was regular chocolate chips (24oz) and 3/4 cup of oil, but you might need to tweak that a bit to get it right for your chocolate and oil.

Do try this out before the big occasion, lemons do exist and its worth knowing if you need a replacement before that special occasion.

Not a heavy duty machine but for the price it is totally worth it.

The Wilton 2104-9008 Chocolate Pro 3-Tier Chocolate Fountain is definitely the best rated chocolate fondue fountain you can buy for a reasonable price.

Comes with a deep basin that can hold 4 ponds of chocolate, so you are not constantly having to refill the chocolate. And to keep the flow smooth, there is a bubble level that you can use to make sure the machine is level while you adjust the three adjustable feet.

Unlike some other mid-sized fondue machines, this one has a solid, hefty base, with the bowl attached firmly to it.

This is to run, is an easy to clean machine, and has been touted as the most user friendly and reliable fountain on the market. There are very few negative complaints, but even the best machines have their lemons. So if you want a reliable machine this is the one to go for.

The Nostalgia Electrics CFF300 Mini Chocolate Fountain is the most popular mini chocolate fountain.

This fountain is made to fit on any kitchen or dining table, making it ideal for special occasions or everyday use. With its small small capacity, it is ideal for family gatherings and other small special occasions.

It is pretty versatile, and can be used with milk chocolate, dark semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate or butterscotch.

The Chef Buddy 3-Tier Chocolate Fountain is a great chocolate fountain for small gatherings of about 4-6 people, maybe a bit more, but then you might find yourself having to do a lot of refilling.

This is a nice small fountain, that works well but can be difficult to clean. All in all a good buy for the price.

The Total Chef WTF-43 Stainless-Steel Double-Tower Chocolate Fountain has a unique design with two fondue towers that meet in the middle. Unfortunately a number of customers while finding the idea great, were not so happy with the machine.

You can fill each bowl with a different color chocolate for a variety.

Those who liked this fondue machine found it great fun, and a great party favorite. Yet despite that , and considering the many negative reviews,I think it might not be the best buy.

While the second choice is safer, but more expensive, especially if you are using you fondue fountain a lot.
