We purchased a Little Dipper alomst two years ago. Quickly we founc out it wasnt big enough, so we went to a larger machine. The Little Dipper works well and we use it for a back up. We too found the bowl too small so I took a carbide 1/2 inch drill and drilled 4 holes in the bottom portion of the baffle about 2 inches from the base of the bowl which allowed the chocolate to flow through, thus increasing the tempering capacity. This is not easy, the stainless steel is very hard and requires lubricating well while drilling.
