How to Make Caramel Apples

This video shows you how quick and easy it is to make delicious caramel apples your customers will love!

This video will explain how to make caramel apples using eco-friendly skewers, Carnival King caramel dip, and an Avantco W300 soup warmer. To begin, remove the insert from the warmer and add 32 oz. of water. Preheat the warmer to the number 8 setting or medium high heat. While the unit is preheating, remove the label from the caramel dip can and open the can. Remove the lid from the caramel dip can and insert it into the preheated soup warmer. Place the soup warmer lid back on the soup warmer and let it heat for 1-2 hours. You will want the temperature of the caramel to reach 175 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit before use. Be sure to stir the caramel once it has reached this temperature. Next, skewer room temperature apples and dip them in the caramel. Spin skewer between your fingers to help the excess caramel come off the apple. Then place on a sheet and let cool for 20 minutes before serving.

    warmer soup great Easy hot lid perfect temperature caramel clean

    This is the perfect size kettle for warming up a cheese sauce or maybe chili. Keeps the food perfect temp and doesn't dry on edges like others I have tried

    from great lakes grinders Posted on

    This warmer works just fine and suits our need at our soft serve shop. I did however have trouble trying to figure out how to get the lid to fit properly...

    from Spring Street Treats Posted on

    before I got this product, many of my customers were complain about the food temperature. I am using it to keep the soft boil egg warm, but not over cook. it is perfect for that

    from ramen Posted on

    Was using another product to warm hot fudge but it wasn't able to be adjusted. Got this and am so happy with it that we're about to order another. It is adjustable so it makes it easy to keep sensitive food like hot fudge and caramel warm even as the level drops through the day of using the product, all we do is adjust the temp and clean and refill after the rush! Easy to assemble and the lid is great, only thing to watch is open the lid all the way to dry off condensation - then you can rest it on the hinge for serving and it is easy to close one handed.

    I purchased this item to melt down caramel for caramel apples. While it did do the job it took a long time for it to heat the caramel to the necessary temperature.

    We were very surprised that this soup warmer is such high quality and extremely low price. We use this for many of our smaller catering events and it is a great addition to our catering inventory!

    from GBF Catering Posted on

    Haven't used them yet, but they are exactly what I needed. I think they will be prefect for apple dipping. The magnetic label holder is a great addition

    Kettle Warmer

    great for keeping soups hot and not taking up a lot of counter space. hold enough soup in the deli for use during lunch time

    from Pag-omar Farms Market Posted on

    We are very happy with this warmer. We use it in the winter for soups and in the summer as a hot fudge warmer. Easy to clean as well.

    Posted on

    This warmer definitely does the job. We have had no problems in keeping temperature and it is easy to adjust. The only issue we've had is that the lid is a little difficult to figure out. It is a little frustrating but works OK once you get the hang of it. The lid does have a space for the spoon and everything comes apart for cleaning. I would give it 5 stars if the lid were easier to put together and use.

    from Station's Inn Posted on

    This warmer is great for keeping soup and any sauces hot. I am not happy with the design. The inner stainless steel shell is hard to remove. The separate collar is cumbersome.

    from M Librizzi Posted on

    This is a great soup warmer. It holds it at the perfect temperature. Very easy to operate! It is easy to clean too. Would definately recommend this

    from The purple monkey Posted on

    Love this soup warmer. Works very well for our business. Just ordered another one. Would recommend this for any restaurant that wants a great quality soup warmer.

    from Big Jim's 395 Grill Posted on

    This product has worked perfectly for us. We use it to serve hot fresh oatmeal each morning to our guests. They really appreciate this option over the packets of oatmeal we used to offer.

    Posted on

    This is very good warmer, we have 2 big warmers but too much space, I am still testing to make sure which number is holding temperature around 140, we will buy another one if everything is going good for saving our space:)

    Posted on

    Great little steamwell. We use ours for soup or oatmeal in the mornings. Be advised: this is a small unit and doesn't hold as much product as other soup server/hotwell units. The upside: small footprint.

    Posted on

    The Avantco 6 quart food and soup warmer works perfect. Didn't need the big and bulky 11 quart soup kettle. The 6 quart warmer is slim and clean looking.
