I bought this for my granddaughter. We used it for her birthday party, it was a complete success, everyone at the party just loved it. It worked great for about 4 hours then it quit. We cleaned it immediately, and it was very easy to clean. We waited for hours, and even they next day to let it cool down, but the motor wouldn't come on. I emailed Sephra, and they immediately sent me a new one, and said they would would pick up the broken one. I was very happy with the fountain. I buy lots of stuff with Amazon, review very little, but this was great, and the customer service was even better.
Worked perfectly for the entire party. Thirteen 8-year-old girls and six adults got endless joy from this chocolate fountain for 6 hours straight, with one chocolate refill. Used Nestle chocolate chips mixed with a little oil (lots of recipes available online) instead of the more expensive fountain chocolate. Easy to set up, use, refill, "burp" when there were air pockets (Sephra has good instructional videos about this on youtube) and no problem to save excess chocolate and clean out the rest. Such a great investment that we will use again and again for birthdays and other occasions. Machine looks great and feels really sturdy. Made my daughter's first party in a new town a huge success.
I'm very impressed and pleased with how well this chocolate fountain worked out for our office holiday party!
The parts are very easy to assemble, almost no instruction required. I didn't heat chocolate in the fountain itself so I do not know how long it would take to melt down if I attempted to heat the chocolate solely in the base of the fountain. I put in 4 lbs of the melted chocolate into the already warmed up base, then I ran the auger at on/off intervals of about two seconds each for half a minute. After that it ran quietly like a champ for the rest of the night. Requiring only one top off. The kids at the party couldn't stop coming back to dip strawberries and pretzels in the fountain!
Cleaning was a little bit of a hassle considering the chocolate contains oils which leave a residue on all of the plastic parts. I used a sponge loaded up with dish soap and hot water to help remove the chocolate and that did the trick.
Hopefully this can be used for years to come.
Works great! Total package. We purchased another one this worked so good. however, it was a different brand and was no where near as good. It was returned
