fondue pot

If you don’t already have a cheese fondue set, you may want to consider getting a versatile fondue pot that can be used 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.

I recommend the Trudeau Alto 3 In 1 Electric Fondue Set

as a multipurpose cheese fondue pot that would work great for this cheese fondue recipe.
