Frequently Asked Questions

How does the chocolate fountain work?

Inside of the centre of the fountain is a specially designed stainless steel corkscrew, which rotates and carries the melted chocolate from the heated basin to the top. Once it reaches the top, the warm chocolate overflows and cascades down the fountain.

How long do you supply the fountain for?

Our prices include set up time, 3 hours of the fountain running and dismantlement.

What happens if we want the fountain running for more than 3 hours?

Please contact us with your requirements and we will be happy to discuss them with you.

What can be used as dips for the fountain?

Fruits, sweets and cakes can be used for dips, for example: strawberries, raspberries, banana, marshmallows, profiteroles, muffins, doughnuts, and much more. We never run out of dipping item’s during your hire period. For more delicate fruit and crumbly foods, we would recommend ladling some chocolate over them, as debris interferes with the aesthetics and smooth running of the fountain. Ladling the melted chocolate, can use more of it.

Do I need to set the fountain up or prepare the chocolate?

We will take care of all the preparation and set up, and at the end of your function we will clear the fountain away. Our service is designed to be totally stress free for you, so you can relax and enjoy your event.

What kind of chocolate can be used in the fountain?

High quality Belgian Couverture chocolate is used in the fountain. It has a  high cocoa butter content, which means the chocolate not only flows smoothly, it has a better taste and a silky appearance.We NEVER add vegetable  oil to thin down the chocolate only quality coco butter, unlike most company’s we also never re-use chocolate.so beware if you are offered a cheaper quote else where they may be using last week’s chocolate.

Is there a time limit the fountain can be used for, or can it run continuously?

There is no time limit for use, and adding more melted chocolate to the basin will allow the unit to continue to provide the chocolate flow basically non-stop. Our rental period is for 3 hours. However if you wish to hire the fountain for longer we can discuss your requirements.

What kind of functions is the Chocolate fountain suitable for?

The fountain is suitable for any special occasions and is guaranteed to be a talking point.

How many people does each size fountain serve?

The small serves up to 1-50 guests,the medium 50 - 80 and the large 80 up to 300-500 guests

Is it possible to accommodate more guests?

Yes, you can purchase extra chocolate and dipping goodies if you wish. Included in the rental of the machine is 10kg of Belgian Chocolate and a choice of 10 dips for the large fountain for up to 150 guest’s

Can I have the fountain at an outdoor event?

It’s not recommend you use the fountain outside for 2 reasons.
1) The chocolate attracts flying insects
2) A breeze would disrupt the flow of the chocolate.
If you absolutely wanted to use the fountain outside you would need to ensure that it was in a warm and sheltered spot and that you were vigilant enough to ensure no flying insects came into contact with it.
