To properly melt coating, you can use a microwave. Place the product in a bowl and microwave it for 20-30 seconds at a time. After each 20-30 second interval, stir the contents. The product will melt quickly and is very easy to scorch if overheated. It is best to use a thermometer and melt until the well mixed coating is at about 115°F. Then allow the coating to cool to about 5 degrees above the melt point prior to using it.
We don't recommend using double boilers since the coatings may absorb some of the escaped moisture. Commercially, coating is melted in large water-jacketed melting tanks.
Again it is melted to approximately 115°F and then cooled to about 5 degrees above the melt point of the coating. Coating should also be thoroughly agitated before application since fat migration to the surface may take place during the melting process.
