Fondue Pot for Cheese Fondue Only?
If you don't already have a pot for this beer 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 pot shown on the right. In addition to being versatile, it is also electrical and you will not need to buy fondue fuel.
