*Milk & White chocolate contain dairy ingredients which may scorch. If you are melting chocolate in the bowl of the fountain you must use a spatula to frequently stir the chocolate to avoid scorching. Operating Information

  • -Place one bag of Sephra™ Premium Fondue Chocolate in the microwave. Heat on half power for 3-5 minutes as instructed on the package. It is important to gently massage the chocolate bag every 2-3 minutes, so that the chocolate will not burn.
  • -When the chocolate is melted, simply cut the top corner of the bag off, and pour the chocolate into the fountain. You can also temper the chocolate by pouring the chips directly into the basin. Melting the chocolate using this process takes about 1 hour.

Cleaning Procedure -Turn the Fountain from “ON” to “Preheat” -Adjust the temperature to 140 degrees -Using a Spatula, Start at the top tier and scrape the excess chocolate from each tier. -Once the excess chocolate has been removed, slide each of the tiers up and off of the cylinder. -On the top of the auger you will find a knob. Lift the auger by grasping the knob. -When the auger has been removed, hold it over the bowl of the fountain so that the excess chocolate you are removing drips into the chocolate fountain. -Use a spatula to remove the excess chocolate by twisting down the auger from the top. -Empty the remaining chocolate from the basin, using a spatula, into a lined Garbage can. DO NOT pour the remaining Chocolate into the sink as it can harden and clog your drain. -Use a damp sponge with soap to remove the remaining chocolate from each Tier, Auger and Cylinder. Make sure to use hot water as it will keep the chocolate soft and easy to remove. -Place the freshly cleaned tiers, auger and cylinder back into the Tier set Case. -Place the Base Back into the Basin Case.
