Fondue Pots Buying Guide

Refine By

Fondue is a former food trend that's making a comeback. It's great for entertaining, because people gather around the pot and eat as well as converse. A fondue pot is the perfect vessel for a cheesy, meaty, or chocolaty mixture. For a great crowd-pleasing twist on serving tired old dip recipes, a fondue pot can perk up the party.

Types of Fondue Pots

Types of Fondue Pots

Fondue pots vary in thickness and functionality, depending on what you want to cook or heat. If you're serving a meat fondue that requires cooking in hot oil, you'll want to purchase a fondue pot that is made to withstand very high temperatures. A thicker pot is recommended to keep contents such as cheeses and chocolates warm without burning.

Electric

It doesn't get much easier than plug, warm, and serve with an electric fondue pot. Set the temperature relative to the ingredients being warmed and enjoy.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

If you decide to purchase an electric fondue pot, be sure you have an outlet convenient to your serving area. While there's nothing inferior about an electric fondue pot, you'll miss out on the cozy ambience provided by a candle or sterno-fuel pot. Because a fondue pot is not a big investment, your only obstacle in owning one might be finding a place to store it.

Pots

Some pots have the flexibility of going from stovetop or grill to the stand. This feature is beneficial, as the fondue can be prepared and heated thoroughly in the pot before being moved to a stand for serving.

Fuel

Depending on the type of fondue pot you choose, you will need a heat source. This may include a sterno light, tea light, or small unscented candle. Alcohol or fondue gels are other fuel options, but they pose a few more risks.

Forks

Long-handle forks are needed for dunking the dippers into the fondue. Most fondue forks have heat-resistant handles. Designed for fondue, dessert forks are slightly shorter, while meat and cheese forks have two or three prongs and longer handles for hot-oil dips.
