Fondue Pots

So if you don't already have a fondue pot, you should definitely invest in one for the approaching fondue season. I purchased mine a few years ago from Bed Bath and Beyond after enjoying a great fondue party at my friend Jill's house. I think I paid somewhere between $30-$50 for my set. I use it several times a year and it's held up very well.

While I couldn't find my fondue pot online, I did find a close match. The one pictured above is the Swissmar Arosa 11-piece Stainless Steel Fondue Set. It retails for $69.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond. I've found that the key to a good fondue set is one that has both a stainless steel pot and a ceramic insert. You definitely need both. That way you can do meat, cheese, and chocolate fondue. The ceramic insert acts as a double boiler for heating the cheese and chocolate. Without it, the chocolate and cheese would burn in the pot.

You need a fondue set. Trust me on this. Go out and treat yourself now, or put it on your Christmas list. You won't be sorry.
