Review: Wilton Chocolate Pro Melting Pot

Published 19:27 pm

When it comes to being in the kitchen, I feel like I'm at my most comfortable when I am making desserts. My favorite type of desserts to make are anything dipped in chocolate because it's a quick and easy, and it's also mess free for dinner guests if I have let the chocolate settle in the refrigerator. Because my mom knows how much I love chocolate and dipping just about everything in chocolate, she purchased the Wilton Chocolate Pro Melting Pot for me as a gift.

When I first saw the box in which the Wilton Chocolate Pro Melting Pot came in, I was a little perplexed because I have never owned a chocolate melting pot before and I assumed that it would be bigger. When I opened the box and pulled out the pot, I was surprised to see that it was no bigger than a cantaloupe.

The base of the Wilton Chocolate Pro Melting Pot was burgundy with the Wilton logo branded on the front in gold lettering. The handle of the removable pot also follows the same color scheme, and is rubber to protect your hands from the heat of the metal pot.

Because the Wilton Chocolate Pro Melting Pot is small, it's easy to maneuver around in the kitchen or entertain your guests if that is the case. I like the size of the Wilton Chocolate Pro Melting Pot because it doesn't take up much counter space which is an absolute positive for me because I disdain having a cluttered counter when I am cooking or baking anything.

The pot is electric and comes with a cord attached to it, but I wish that it had a detachable cord for the sole purpose of placing it either in the center of the table for dinner guests to reach into or on a side table setup sort of like a buffet.

The thing I like best about the Wilton Chocolate Pro Melting Pot is that it's easy to operate. There is a power switch on the front of the base which says: off, melt, and warm. The directions that came with the pot says to switch the power on to melt and let it warm up for at least five minutes, but I noticed the pot was already hot after two minutes. I was a little skeptical about putting the white chocolate chips in the pot to melt because if you over cook white chocolate it can become clumpy and futile; however, after stirring the white chocolate chips around for a few minutes, they began to melt smoothly with absolutely no clumping involved: it was smooth with a perfect shine to it.

After the chocolate was melted, I switched the button from melt to warm to keep the chocolate in its liquid state in order for me to dip my various fruits and pretzels. Because I had the long stick pretzels, I ended up transferring some of the chocolate to a plastic cup to allow the chocolate to coat the pretzels a quarter from the top because the pot was a little to shallow and I didn't want to make a mess.

However, the pot was fine for small things such as the apple slices, banana slices, and strawberries I was dipping. The cleaning process was easy because all I had to do was remove the metal pot from the base, and just wash it in soap and water. The process was that of washing a non-stick pan because the chocolate came off like that.

Overall, the Wilton Chocolate Pro Melting Pot was a great surprise from my mom because it was a gift I didn't know I wanted. My mom purchased it for only twenty dollars although the retail price states it should be sold at thirty dollars. It's no bigger than a cantaloupe which I wasn't really sure how to respond to, but it has been a great thing because it doesn't take up much counter space and it's easy to move from the kitchen to the dining room.

Although the directions states you should allow the pot to warm up for at least five minutes, I found it to heat up much quicker.

The chocolate melts as good as if you were melting it on a stovetop with a stainless steel bowl over a pot of boiling water: the chocolate came out smooth and had a nice appearance to it.

I enjoyed how less of a hassle the Wilton Chocolate Pro Melting Pot has made melting chocolate because all I had to do was worry about the constant stirring and that was it: the chocolate melted in about five minutes and not much longer because once I started adding the chocolate chips to the pot they instantly began melting.

The cleaning process is easy because all you have to do is remove the pot from the base and wash it with basic soap and water and that's it. I would definitely recommend the Wilton Chocolate Pro Melting Pot to someone who enjoys melting chocolate on a regular basis as well as those who are beginners.

The Wilton Chocolate Pro Melting Pot doesn't take any real work except switching on the power to either melt, warm, or off. It is small enough to where it doesn't take up any room at all, and it's easy to store away when you're finished.

I really like using this product because it makes melting chocolate a much more simple process.
