Professional catering suppliers JM Posner has launched a new Hot Chocolate and Sauce Maker to give foodservice operators the opportunity to serve hot chocolate during the summer’s unpredictable weather conditions.

Product details:

With dimensions of 32cmx26cmx50cm (LxWxH) and weighing in at 6.5kg, the Hot Chocolate & Sauce Maker supplied by JM Posner is small enough to be moved but large enough to dispense high quantities of hot chocolate or other sauces and beverages.

The counter-top dispenser comes in a choice of white or black with a silver lid and can hold up to 5litres in a clear polycarbonate drum.


The Hot Chocolate and Sauce Maker has a built-in thermostat for precise temperature adjustment and a removable drum for easy cleaning and storage within a refrigerator. Even when full, the versatile model is capable of heating a number of sauces or hot beverages in just 15 minutes using the direct heating system.


The Hot Chocolate Machine is on sale at a price of £399 plus VAT


JM Posner are launching a new and improved website within the next two weeks which will have all of their products on, including the Hot Chocolate Maker.

Why you should buy it:

Justin Posner, managing director of JM Posner, said: “Hot Chocolate is a beverage that has to be of high quality to command a premium price and achieve repeat sales.

“Using a counter display item such as the Hot Chocolate and Sauce Maker, means the beverage can sit pride of place and demonstrate the quality of the product inside.

“Now is the best time to prepare your hot beverage offering, especially with this summer seeming a great deal shorter than most. Stocking up, positioning equipment, writing menu boards and designing luxury hot chocolates products can all take time in the run up to the generally colder months.”

Other products on the market:

  • Nestlé Professional recently launched its award-winning Viaggi beverage machine in the UK which delivers ‘barista-style’ coffees and hot chocolate to foodservice operators.
  • The ‘Chocolady’ machine from Carpigiani allows baristas to make rich and creamy hot chocolate in small bars.
