Hillard's Little Dipper Chocolate Tempering Machine. Serial #071071
Recently came out of a local Godiva store.
The information below of off the factory website.
The "Little Dipper" is a pilot plant (laboratory) size version of Hilliard's standard melters. A compact melting and tempering unit, it is designed to process from 1 1/2 pounds to 25 pounds of chocolate per day. Tempering capacity can be greatly increased by pre-melting the chocolate. Even an inexperienced operator can produce exceptional products with little training.
