Fondue Sauces – Hot Oil Fondue, Broth Fondue Recipes

Having a great selection of fondue sauces is an essential part of planning your next broth or hot oil fondue party.

Fondue dipping sauces can be left on the table in small bowls and the guests spoon out the quantity they want directly into their fondue plates.

Some fondue pots are equipped with a “Lazy Susan” that allows the fondue dips to rotate around the fondue pot, therefore allowing your guests to get the dip of their choice more easily.

This Lazy Susan Fondue Set is an example of such a fondue pot.
