Advice for a first-time buyer

I need to purchase my first tempering machine in the news few days and am looking for something that will temper around 5lbs of chocolate at a time. I was wondering if anyone might have any recommendations?

I've also been reading a lot of good things about Matfer Bourgeat but can't find any details on the forum here and wondered if anyone might have any experience with these machines.

Thanks so much, Olivia.

Hi Olivia,

I think that Chocotemper by ICB Tecnologie is a suitable choice to start a business.
It is available in various sizes and capacities, Chocotemper Top is the tabletop version and it can work with 5kg (10 lbs) at a time.

Give it a look and also take a look at ICB Tecnologie website.

Smallest model is 8kg.  This model is from China and is the one I will purchase so I have more money left over for marketing and the like.

my phone is616.403.1970 if you have any questions I can explain the process to import via Alibaba. very easy. Alibaba have many styles and prices. I chose a single phase model.

Chocolate enrober only $5K usd.
