Hot chocolate makers are available from major retailers such as Bed, Bath and Beyond, Walmart, Sears and Kmart. Online retailer Amazon also sells a number of hot chocolate makers.
A hot chocolate maker is a specialty product and most retailers only stock one or two brands. As of 2015, Bed, Bath and Beyond carries the West Bend Cocoa Grande 60-Ounce Hot Chocolate/Latte Maker, which can prepare up to 7.5 cups of hot chocolate or lattes. The various settings allow for mixing, heating, frothing and dispensing the hot chocolate.
Walmart carries the Nostalgia Retro Series Hot Chocolate Maker, which includes a 32-ounce pitcher and simple switch settings. Sears and Kmart also carry the Nostalgia brand. In addition, Kmart sells the Lifetime Brands La Cafetiere Stovetop Hot Chocolate Pot, which must be used on the stove. The pot comes with a built-in frother to blend the ingredients and add froth to the hot chocolate.

This brand has several unique features, including specialty mixing discs, a chocolate basket for using chocolate pieces and an automatic shut-off feature. Amazon also carries the West Bend Cocoa Grand and the Nostalgia brand of hot chocolate makers.
