Woohoo, Fondue!
By Melissa Meisel

Intro | Set Up | Cheese, Please | Chocolate Fun-do

Setup supplies
Generally, two types of fondue pots are used in Swiss fondue sets. Ceramic pots are used for cheese fondue. Their bulk distributes heat for even heating, and the glazed surface preserves the delicate cheese and wine flavors. Swiss Fondue sets and fondue pots make great gifts. The metal pots are designed for the higher temperatures of the oil used to cook meat. Metal pots work well for "light" bouillon fondue cooking in a Swiss fondue set. Get it directly from the source at Shop Swiss , where you can purchase fondue supplies galore. Try a Swiss-made fondue pot by Stockli at this international website. This burnished copper pot is lined with stainless steel, has a full cover, a no-splash lid, and a wood handle. Pay for the quality at $148. For just desserts, shopswiss.com offers a Chocolate Fondue/Butter Warmer for $29.95, ideal for warming chocolate sauces, butter, and dips, and recipes are included. The set includes the fondue pot, stand with candle, lid, and ladle. The removable tray allows for easy candle lighting.

Target sells a complete 10-piece meat fondue set for only $14.99. It includes one stainless steel fondue pot, six color-coded fondue forks, one black enamel heavy-duty metal stand, one heat diffuser, one safety burner with cover and "stay-cool" handle, and instructions and recipes to get you started.
