What Is a Chocolate Tempering Machine?
A chocolate tempering machine, sometimes called a chocolate emulsifier, is an automated countertop unit or device which is specifically designed to eliminate all of the manual labor and guesswork out of tempering chocolate for recipes. It is an easy way to make delicious chocolate desserts and all the hard work will be done for you. There are many different types of chocolate that are used in making chocolate desserts. Some of the most popular and well known chocolate flavors are dark chocolate and milk chocolate. Some people do not like the taste of certain chocolate flavors, so it is good to know what you are getting into before you buy a chocolate tempering machine.
Different styles of Chocolate tempering machines
Chocolate tempering machines come in two basic styles. The first style has two temperature controls; one knob and one dial. The second style is more advanced and does not actually have two temperature controls on one panel as only one control is shown on the screen, but it still has a knob and temperature controls knobs at the side.
The type of chocolate tempering machine you choose depends on how much time and effort you want to save. If you are someone who likes to spend hours in the kitchen then a full line of appliances is probably going to be your best choice. But if you are a quick-tempered chocolate eater then a simple appliance may be all you need. The more features you get in your chocolate cooking appliance the more expensive it will be, but it will also be a lot of fun to use.
When you are shopping for a chocolate tempering machine you want to make sure you are buying one that will suit your needs. If you have a shop that sells small appliances then you should probably consider a small, stand alone chocolate oven. These are ideal for a small pantry or home. These heating units can usually heat up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit and come with a stainless steel design that makes them very attractive. The downside is that these models do not have a temperature control and the contents do not brown evenly – the white chocolate tends to melt into a dark brown colour.
Other popular chocolate tempering machines include the whirlpool style and the French press. Both of these machines utilize different types of containers, the whirlpool style uses a spiral wire mesh to generate the movement. A fan whirlpool produces a smoother, more even flow of the chocolate making it much like a fountain. French presses use two bowls, one smaller than the other, and place the bowl in the middle of the device while pressing the button to set the time and temperature.
