If you don't already have a fondue pot for this beer cheese fondue recipe, you may want to consider getting a versatile fondue pot that you can use for chocolate fondue, cheese fondue and meat fondue in either hot oil or broth.

I recommend the Trudeau Alto 3 In 1 Electric Fondue Set shown on the right (Canada and USA only). In addition to being versatile, it is also electric and you will not need to buy fondue fuel.
