What is a Fondue Set
Most people like hosting guests. But if you do not have time for cooking and guests are already around the corner think of a fondue set. It will surely strike and delight all your friends and family members, while you will undoubtedly enjoy quick preparation and kitchen time. Fondue is a traditional Swiss dish served in a heatproof pot (caquelon) and made from a blend of cheese with wine, nutmeg, and garlic. Modern fondue recipes offer a variety of meat fondues for entrees and sweet chocolate fondues for dessert. Basically, fondue set consists of a melting bowl and a set of forks or skewers for dipping ingredients into fondue. Additionally, it may include fork racks and pans for ingredients.

What Features to Compare
If you are a fan of chocolate or cheese fondue, we encourage you to consider fondue sets with ceramic bowls. They maintain a moderate temperature preventing cheese and chocolate overheating and sticking to the bowl. Hence, cleaning will be a breeze. For meat or fish fondues, you'd better choose metal bowls that will easily handle high temperatures to heat the oil or broth. Meanwhile, stainless steel bowls are the best option for those who plan to make different types of fondue. They are multipurpose and a non-stick interior will become an additional benefit. Besides, it is worth mentioning that some models for chocolate fondue come with plastic or aluminium pots. Usually, they boast a lightweight compact design and are just great for outdoor events and parties.
Capacity and Power source
Fondue bowl or pot capacity will determine the number of people you'll be able to treat with tasty hors d'oeuvres and desserts. A capacity of 0.3-0.5 Qt is enough for a romantic evening of two while selecting a fondue set to make a dinner for a common family of 4 persons you should regard models with a 1.5-Qt bowl. And high-capacity units with 3-3.5-Qt bowls are just perfect for family gatherings or parties with friends where you can invite up to 8 persons. Modern fondue sets also vary by the heat source that will first melt and then heat your incredible fondue. Today manufacturers offer either electricity or open flame as the heat source. The use of electricity will limit unit's portability to a certain extent but on the other hand, it is safer. Open flame fondue makers offer a number of alternatives and may be maintained by means of a candle or different fuels such as alcohol, gel fuel, butane and other types of liquid fuel. Fuel- and candle-based pots are handy and highly portable. But it is better to use them outdoors to avoid the risk of fire.
The usability and operational convenience of a unit are determined by additional features it comes with. Thus, adjustable thermostats with preset temperature modes or manual temperature control are essential for the right heating temperature to tailor your fondue to perfection. With users' comfort in mind, most manufacturers provided their fondue sets with forks or skewers for picking different ingredients. Additionally, modern fondue sets are often packed with fork racks, special plates or trays as well as various moulds for chocolates, candies and cake decorations.
