Croquade USCH001 Chocolate Melter
Ratings & Reviews
Fantastic melter at an incredible price
This is an exceptional little machine, especially for the price. It melts a fairly large quantity of chocolate (at least for a home chocolate maker) and holds its temperature quite reliably, which makes tempering a breeze. The only improvement I could see would be more/better temperature marks on the dial - I tend to use different temperatures than those recommended in the manual - but that's a very minor consideration.
<br>The mold included in my unit arrived with a big crack lengthwise down the center, so perhaps some packaging revision might be in order - but also, for me, this was not a significant issue, as I have a sizable collection of polycarbonate molds.
A good first melter
This is a good middle-sized melter. The chocolate melts well and temperature adjustments work. I’ve discovered that I can use a hot pad over the heating element to help me regulate and maintain temperature. I use this often for small batches. it Is too small to empty polycarbonate molds flat, therefore they must be tipped as the illustration demonstrates. All in all, it is a good reliable machine for most things. It works great for melting and dipping.
