from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. In candy-making, a machine for coating with chocolate the prepared candies cast from the depositing-machine by dipping wire-work trays filled with them in hot chocolate, removing the surplus, and hardening and drying. It makes finished chocolates that exactly resemble those dipped by hand. See depositing-machine and *starch-buck.

They change the positions on the shelves every so often; the dipping-machine tenders cut capers and mark the same kind of chocolates differently to-day from yesterday.
