Congratulations! You've decided to invest in a home chocolate fountain! You're going to have lots of fun. That's the easy part, however. Choosing the right fountain might seem slightly trickier – simply because there are three great options to choose from. Select, Classic or Elite – which is the best one for you?

Things to consider when choosing a home chocolate fountain

Home entertaining is more fun with a chocolate fountain. We all know that! But which features are really important when you are choosing one for the first time? For sure, you want one that is well made, serviceable for years, easy to set up and easy to clean. Those are the most important features that come to mind. But there are other features that should be considered when you shop for a home chocolate fountain. Here are a few common questions: Q: Will it heat the chocolate? Will it flow other fondue foods like cheese, caramel or maybe even hot-wing sauce for a Super Bowl Party? A: When it comes to Sephra home chocolate fountains, the answer is yes. The fountain will heat the chocolate in the bowl, but we generally recommend melting it first. And yes, you can fountain other fondue foods. Q: Will it look lovely and still be solid, well-constructed and run smoothly throughout the whole party without a hiccup? A: Again, it's a resounding yes! If set up and used correctly, your Sephra fountain will be a valued machine you can count on. Q; If you’re hosting an elegant dinner party and the chocolate fountain is the dessert, will it be quiet and unobtrusive? A: All our fountains are kitted out with Whisper-Quiet motors. You won't even know it's there! Q: Will your fountain be high maintenance or will it be pretty much ‘self-sufficient’? A: Our home chocolate fountains are quick and easy to set up and easy to use. They're also easy to clean. The next thing to consider is how many guests you would like the fountain to cater for.
