She's expressed frustration with crock-pots and pans because of how difficult it is to maintain a constant temperature. So I came up with this to give to her as a Christmas gift. She got her present early so I could get mine and I am rather pleased at how it turned out.
I know it doesn't look like much, but it holds the chocolate at a pretty constant temperature. Only drops like one degree every 5 to 10 minutes. If it drops to far just flip it on for a few seconds and the chocolate's temperature is right back where it was.
I used a push button switch for this that sits on the floor so that it can be turned on and off with your foot. Cause lets face it when your hands are covered with chocolate you don't want to be flipping a switch.
In the picture the chocolate has set over night and hardened up. I will try to get another picture of it actually in use.
